Fat Is Good
We love a pun, but in this caption Colleen also gets deep. She writes, "I love humor (obvi) but let's get serious for a second. Have you ever hated your body? It's a strong word, I know, but I can say that I have. Six years I nitpicked every square inch of my body and saw every ounce of fat that I could pinch as bad.
I remember one specific day while I was still in college, on my way to becoming a dietitian, one of the dietitians I was an intern for pulled me into her office and asked me if everything was okay. She could see how consumed I was with food and my body. I lied through my teeth and said 'yeah, of course.' She then said something that stuck with me to this day 'If you get hit by a car, your body won't have any energy reserves to pull from." I was in shock, because she was right.
I'd never thought of having fat as a good thing until those words came out of her mouth. I mean, society has told us it is so bad. But, from that day on I began to respect the fat on my body; it's energy!"
