I hate when I mention wanting to exercise more to people and they always have a response of, "why are you worried about exercising? You only weigh 50lbs!" or something along those lines. It really hurts my feelings. I know I'm skinny but there's nothing I can do about it. And also, exercising isn't only about losing weight. It's about getting and staying healthy. My mom passed away 7 months ago due to pulmonary hypertension. She was only 49. I want to get my heart healthy and strong! And I'm positive she'd want the same for me. *sigh* I just needed to vent.

Btw, I'm not only 50lbs. I go up and down between 97 and 105 and I'm 5'2" so I'm basically "skin and bones".

People are annoying and have a hard time seeing past their own insecurities. Ignore them and do what you need to do!

Tell them you want to be fit and healthy and walk away. No need to hear their negativity!

do what you feel is right girl!  and you're right - exercising isn't just about losing weight. it helps release stress and keep you healthy and balanced!  I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your mom.

Building muscle will help you gain some weight as muscle weighs more than fat. Plus it will keep your body, muscle and joint in particular, healthy. As long as you don't kill those joints by exercising.


I think you look great. My dad died at 46 due to a heart attack. Mom 7 years later with leukemia. 

A friend of mine had something happen while in the shower and between that and falling in the shower, died between the grades of 8 and 9.. between moving from the middle school and going to the high school. 

Ya never know.Be healthy. Just remember to also enjoy life.

Thank you. The only thing is to build muscle you need protein and my husband said protein shakes give you diarrhea. I don't want to deal with running to the bathroom! Lol!

There are plenty of others ways to get protien that do not come a powder.
