I stumbled across a post from Flintland titled “Hey, Fat Girl…” shared by a Facebook friend. Reading through that post reminds me of thoughts I have when I see overweight cyclists out on the road. I won’t expand on Flint’s post other than to say: If you are overweight, are trying to get into shape, and feel self-conscious about what others are thinking, try not to worry about it. Keep doing what you are doing. Who knows? You might be surprised if you could read our minds.
Do take the time to read Flint’s post, it’s a short read and well worth your time.
