My body type is lean, so I have a thin-ish frame and while I used to play tennis and dance, I haven’t been exercising for some time now. And people ask me how I’m thin without working out and I find myself getting scared to put on weight because I was slightly chubby back in middle school. I am scared for my health because I feel some amount of exercise in a day is necessary to maintain fitness and build immunity and it’s just annoying how people equate being thin with being fit.

You’re absolutely right and I would always urge you to include some sort of fitness in your lifestyle :)

I completely understand because I am thin too. Some say that I am fit and others say I am malnourished. People will have their own perspectives no matter whether you are fat,thin,lean,etc. You do what’s best for you because only you know about yourself more than others.

I get it

No one 111 @jarul

You could do like 30 mins of light excercise if you’re really paranoid.

Are you scared because of your body type, and the effects of exercise on it or because the backhanded comments that make you feel apprehensive about being a chubby girl. Remember, a thin or chubby frame is just that, a body type. You dont have to do anything if you feel healthy. Focus on holistic health.

You can exercise if you really want to workout for yourself not because you are expected to maintain your frame. Yes some amount of exercise in a day is healthy and necessary but no amount of judgement is. Just do what makes you happy and try not letting other people’s opinions affect you.
