I think that getting fit shouldn't be so much about getting the "perfect" body, but about getting into a healthy, strong, independent, feel-good, self-respecting state.
Yes, I agree.
The problem, though, as a few of my friends have experienced, is that, while they're just dieting and exercising to be fit, others are thinking that they have, and are jealous or envious of, their "perfect body." (I don't have this problem, as some people have called me "fat", even when I've been fairly fit
). It is also egocentrism that is jealous or envious of one's "perfect body," regardless of the intention of the one who has a "perfect body."
But, to be frank, regardless of their motive, so what if someone has a "perfect body?" Seriously, what harm could that possibly cause another person? And saying that someone is egocentric just because they have what one might consider
a "perfect body" is, itself, egocentric.
A bit of advice, if I may--stop worrying about other people and their motives. Focus on yourself. When you do, you simply won't pay attention to what others do, because you'll be too concerned with what you're
