Conversation I overheard today while at work:
Client: I went to the doctor and found out that I had high cholesterol and I was like, I’m not even fat how can I have high cholesterol?
Stylist: The same thing happen to me and I am not even fat! OMG!
Client: I didn’t know that you could even have high cholesterol if you were skinny. I was so confused. So now I have to work out three times a week.
Stylist: My doctor told me the same thing, that I was to sedentary and needed to be more active in order to get my high cholesterol under control.
Thoughts going on in my head: Weight does not determine health. Wrong. Wrong. You both are so wrong. Assuming all “fat” people are unhealthy is wrong. Just assuming anyone is unhealthy is wrong.
