I hope they didn't judge you for that. It's not right, but it's not uncommon in my experience for visibly thin/fit people to give the "yeah, right" look to those who don't fit the visibly thin/fit mold when they mention working out or eating healthy.

Yep. I'm not visibly thin but I'm an avid hiker and skier and I ride horses. I get the same reaction, and I've kind of stopped caring.

I need to figure out that stop caring idea. In many regards lol

Yeah I get this a lot as a curvy woman of color. People seem to balk every time I tell them I’m into hiking and biking and grew up playing in the forest behind my house. It’s weirder because growing up nobody thought it was weird, but as an adult people judge super hard. I think people watch too much TV and absorb all the worst stereotypes.
