picture-perfect, flab-free body

Monday, November 9, 2009

Come February, my friends and I are planning to spend the weekend of Valentine at the beach. The plane tickets and hotel accommodations have all been taken care of. The only thing missing are the picture-perfect, flab-free bodies that would go well with the sun and the pearly white sand of Boracay.

The pressure is on. We all need to lose weight.

Hell-bent on getting me those washboard abs, I almost enrolled at a nearby gym but thought better of it. It is definitely a luxury I can do without, so I stuck to my stairs workout. Starving myself free of some extra pounds also crossed my mind, but I immediately dismissed it. By now I think I have learned the futility of depriving myself of food at the expense of my mental and physical well-being.

I decided not to do anything. Why would I stress over a bulging tummy and unsightly stretch marks when I know that my friends wouldn’t mind seeing them on me (and vice versa)? We’re going there to have fun, and fun--I’m certain—we’ll have with or without perfect bodies.

But I saw your pic in FB, you're already sexy!

I'm being too hard on losing weight only if I'm attending a wedding. Haha.

Hi Angeli,

It never ceases to amaze me the way women see flaws in themselves that no one else can, amazing. As for dieting, don't bother, just cut all processed food from your diet and eat all natural stuff. Works wonders.

hi kayni. you are so right. my friends won't mind and who cares what strangers would think? :)

hi wits. those pictures at FB lie. the lighting and the angle camouflaged all the bilbil and stretch marks. hahah

thanks, amelia. we sure will have fun there. 24-inch waistline? i think i had that when i was 8 years old? from then, trenta na ang bewang ko. hahah
