Well the tittle of this post gives away the content. I know this problem is faced by a lot of my friends. Wherever you go it's like God is pointing it out to you "YOU ARE FAT". Be it the sexy sirens of bollywood or the average girl next door, they all seem slimmer. Its like the slim are getting slimmer and fat are getting fatter. If the world never cared about how we look why the hell do we have larger than life posters of weight reduction programmes everywhere.
I am proud to say today I am on the healthier side. Yes, not all the pretty dresses fit me; Yes, I don't like asking for "L" sized clothes but atleast I don't feel deprived from food and fun. There is no harm in being a little flabby as long as you do not become obese. The woman body was always imagined as curvaceous NOT linear. Is being thinny skinny really worth it?
Some people are born thin and live thin I do not have any grouse against them because that is how they were made. But I do hate people obsessing over looking stick thin. Though even I go to the gym, I do not go there to be stick thin , I go there to lose the excess and remain healthy. I have understood that God did not want me to be thin and I have made my peace with it.
The funny thing about my life is, I used to be stick thin till I was 14 and then I just grew. I heard so many comments about it that it still makes me cringe. But then I looked at myself at the mirror one day and realise that there was more to me than just my fatty appearance. I have made a promise to myself to be fit and healthy. Even though the Shilpa Shetty body would never be mine, my creativity would never be her's either. Quite a fair deal there.
THE MORAL OF THE STORY: IF GOD HAD MADE EVERYONE ALIKE THE WORLD WOULD BE A MUNDANE PLACE. BE HAPPY WITH YOUR DEFECTS CAUSE THERE IS MUCH MORE TO LIFE THAN BEING PERFECT
Here's to life
