Weight Issues

Thursday, March 18, 2010

Close friends, colleagues, my boyfriend, and practically everyone I know have, in some form or another, concerns about weight. All of them think they’re fat, although some are actually not. Some yearn for that flab-free, healthy body and continue to hope against hope that, without really doing anything, they will get it. With endless self-recrimination, a few obsess about losing weight and get satisfaction from every spoonful of food that they deprive themselves of. And there is always reason to celebrate when somebody who has long been struggling with his or her weight has finally triumphed in slimming down.

Who doesn’t worry about BMI, calories, and metabolism issues nowadays? I do, too. Though I’ve lost a lot of weight through the years, which I am thankful of, and learned to accept my flaws, I still harbor a faint feeling of dissatisfaction. It is impossible, I know, but someday I might wake up looking

from this to this

I can only wish.

i think accepting of how you look like is also very important, and you look great and beautiful.

lol, nice post!


i for one never really had a problem about weight, i sometimes get chubby but i don't consider that a problem at all.... HOWEVER, when i gain weight, the fat seems to always accumulate in the middle of my body, thus making me look very unproportional! in times like this, i have been taken for being pregnant! bad, bad....
