“obsessed is what the lazy called the dedicated”
does anyone else hate this quote? it just kind of bothers me. maybe i’m just looking too far into it, i don’t know… but there’s a difference between being obsessed and dedicated. there is such a thing as being too obsessed with healthy eating and exercising! it’s called orthorexia. you can be dedicated and still not eat 100% perfect, or have great workouts all the time. that doesn’t mean you aren’t dedicated it means you’re good at balancing healthy and treating yourself. obsessed is being afraid to eat any junk food, freaking out majorly about missing workouts, not wanting to eat out ever, skipping on hangouts with friends because they don’t eat the healthiest, etc. make sure you aren’t falling into the obsessed category. it can be just as mentally damaging as any other eating disorder.
Same. I have the same problem with quotes like:
- "Sorry I can’t, I’ll be at the gym"
- "Exercise is a positive addiction"
Sorry, nope, no addiction is positive. Yes, you can have too much of a good thing. Yes, it’s just as bad as any other sort of disordered thoughts.
