The Girl I Should Have Been

The girl I should have been is strong. She is beautiful and mighty in every way imaginable.

The girl I should have been is extremely disciplined. She will not cheat herself because she

knows that it will do her no good in the end.

The girl I should have been says, “No, I will not partake in those grotesque chocolate-covered

Oreo balls. Instead, I will run and lift weights because I am keeping fit.”

The girl I should have been is healthy and muscular. She does not have an ounce of fat upon

her body, and she feels no shame.

The girl I should have been is consumed by thoughts of constantly working out and eating

well. She wishes now that she had enjoyed some unhealthy foods as I have done.
