There are five really great reasons to be incredibly skinny. I think you’ll agree with these.

  • You are a contortionist¬†who needs to wrap your legs in a loop-de-loop around your neck.¬†
  • You’re in jail and want to avoid all the effort it takes to create a master escape plan and just slide out through the bars of your cell.
  • You want to hide behind small palm trees.
  • You are part of an ice skating team with some dude spinning you around over his head.
  • You are starring in a movie in which your character was lost at sea and has been stranded on an island for a long time.

Yep. These are the best reasons I can think of. Skinny or trim (which is the word I prefer) is fine if that’s what you naturally are, as long as the term suits you in a healthy way. But “skinny” is not something I would hope people would strive for. Healthy and fit are far more important concerns than “skinny.”

Think about your life and get real about your legitimate need to be “skinny.” I imagine many of you don’t even care about that, but I know there are some of you who do. Your life probably requires you to be: thoughtful, energetic, determined, caring, generous, ethical, studious, cautious, healthy and fit. Being someone referred to as¬†“skinny” rarely plays a vital role in success or happiness. Unless of course, you need to hide behind small palm trees.
