Tacos > Skinny

Over the last 7 months or so, I have been on a mission to get healthier, which includes losing some weight. So, I have been eating better and exercising and having fairly good results. Yay. However, a lot of people have tried to motivate me by saying “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.”

Those people are liars and scoundrels. I am here to tell you the truth and that is that I have eaten at least 10 things that taste better than skinny feels. At least.That doesn’t mean that I indulge all the time or gorge myself wantonly. I’m just saying, don’t tell me skinny feels better than eating a shrimp taco at Torchy’s. I have been skinny and I have eaten those tacos and let me tell you, the tacos are better.

  1. I gotta agree. I’ve lost 12 pounds this year and it feels great and I love it and I don’t ever want to go back. That doesn’t change how good some of that bad-for-me food tastes.

    And Torchy’s… I’m not a shrimp fan, but man, that’s a good taco place…

  2. Liars! I’d rather see and feel a little meat on a body. Slim or athletic sounds better to me, or curvy. But it’s good to hear that you are working on feeling comfortable with your own body (I believe that is what you meant, if not, please tell me). Keep on jogging in a free world – The False Prophet.

    I’ve noticed, admittedly in my limited experience, that the people who say that…are actually NOT skinny, and therefore have no idea what they are talking about.

  4. LOL… I completely agree. There’s no comparison between Shakeology and a milkshake! And quinoa!?!??? But if we tell ourselves something enough times, it becomes our truth. I know some very dedicated dieters and good for them, it’s a tough lifestyle choice, at least in my eyes. We all definitely need balance in life and with our food. 🙂

  5. Okay but seriously you’re so right. That “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” is for people who are probably starving themselves on half plastic diet food anyways… in which case, yes, that probably all tastes like crap.

    This made me giggle though because clearly no one could confuse me as the type of girl that cares about obsessively counting calories…

    (See #1. It’s a doozy.)

  6. I reckon it’s about being fit, not skinny. Because when you’re fit you can eat a shrimp taco or two (or three or maybe even five) without worrying.

  7. That phrase kills me every time I hear it & I want to punch the mouth it comes out of.

    …It’s a nice thought, but we are not idiots.

    [nom nom nom]

  8. This made me chuckle, which after the day I’ve had I needed. Thank you.
    I think the only thing that doesn’t taste as good as skinny feels, is the stuff you have to eat to be skinny!

  9. I would never give up my favorite foods (which also include Torchy’s!) to be super skinny. Especially in a world where girls must be stick thin to be beautiful, but it’s okay if guys pack on extra pounds. Nope! Give me tacos any day!

  10. ᴀ ɴᴇᴡ ʏᴏʀᴋ ᴍɪɴᴜᴛᴇ says:

    I have metal fillings in my teeth, and my refrigerator magnets keep pulling me into the kitchen. That’s why I can’t lose weight.

  11. People who say things like that have either never eaten REALLY good food, or have some kind of overall misfire in their taste buds. 😉

    Congrats on the healthier you, though! 😀
    (Maybe they’d be right(er) if they said HEALTHY feels better than anything tastes. Mostly because UNHEALTHY mostly feels like poo.)
