In general, there's nothing wrong with getting fit, ever. That's a no-brainer. I think a lot of backlash comes from the attention-whoring social media
crap. Like what they did to benevolent foodies by proxy. Now we have asshole food snobs plastering every single thing they eat all over the internet
like it's going out of style. It's no wonder people get a little venomous. Fitness just followed suit -- photo journeys started with people looking
for accountability/to inspire, and the assholes jumped right in the middle to attention-whore away.
I actually know someone like that, it was very aggravating when I was on Fakebook. Between being a pretentious foodie, and a pretentious Crossfitter,
she came across as a massive, snotty bitch in overpriced Lululemon. It soured almost everyone mutual between us on her list about following
anyone's fitness attempts. Burnt out, I suppose we were.
I think a lot of people are getting that way with places like Twitter & Instagram and Facebook simply inundating people with that pretentious
attitude, it's just a default assumption of the poster now.
If you haven't already, I suggest a post explaining why you're sharing, and the support & accountability you hope to receive out of it. It might go a
good ways in getting feathers unruffled, and you may get a morale boost, too
