YOU'RE FAT!

This issue has been troubling me for the past few years. In this generation, you're simply not allowed to eat properly or have even a centimeter of flesh around your stomach. If you do, you aren't considered healthy. Nope, you're simply labeled into the group of 'fat hippos' or 'bull-dozers'.

Instead, if you are painfully anorexic, ie, if your ribcage, backbone slump under the weight of hardly any skin to drape it, if your cheeks sink into your face like two craters, *congratulations* you're 'sexy'!

We're only fourteen, not yet crossed our adolescence and here we are, critisizing each other's shape, tell each other to pull down to 'magically morph into a better induvidual'. However, TRY being kind, sweet, understanding, sharp, intelligent, broad-minded and then move on to being'sexy' for the next three fourth of your life. I don't consider being awfully skinny a good quality, nor to I consider having a waist size 30, something to be ashamed of.
I eat healthy and exercise regularly. I'm happy with the way I look, however, many people just can't see me being confindent with myself. If I slim down by 10 kgs, like a few tell me to, then I'll have to go crawling to school. I'll been scrawny and shriveled, worse than a dead plant!

So, my definition of looking good is- smile, maintain a good hygiene, walk confidently and always remember -your thoughts reflect on your face. Like Roald Dahl said in 'The Twits'. -
"If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until it gets so ugly you can hardly bear to look at it. A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely."

Trust yourself and your capabilities. You can look 'sexy' even if you are plump. Because, to look 'sexy' you have to look good and you can look good if you are kind. Or else, no amount of cosmetics can cover your internal ugliness. You are not at a disadvantage if people are slimmer than you, so don't let people make you believe that you are. Most of those 'sexy chicks in school' starve themselves to death to 'maintain themselves'. Don't ever try that!
If Barbie was a real woman, she'd have to walk on her fours, as her body is not proportionate . So, be healthy rather than anorexic. Remember, you're NOT competing with Aishwarya Rai.

Just imagine life without food- bland, boring and bare! Why does everyone earn? To have money for food, to survive. If they don't eat, then whats the point!

you seem to be quiet touchy about this subject. is it something personal? are you or your parents fat?

Rheaa said...

I am touchy about this subject because i think that teens my age should enjoy life and food instead of starving themselves. all of us in our family are pretty fit because we exercise, not starve. thats the point i want to make.

I *completely* agree. Its absolutely stupid when idiots go around telling me exactly why I am .5 kgs overweight. dude, we're kids, we can eat and enjoy now, and instead of worryin bout what those nincompoop boys think about hve some fun! who cares if those morons think youre fat??? And yes, now is not the age to be obsessed aobut ones appearance, we can worry bout that when were older.

I saw something about Aishwarya Rai somewhere, I don't remember where, but I saw that she eats a lot. I mean A LOT. But she isn't fat bcuz its her natural metabolism. weird, isn't it??

Over here we have this subject called FACS (Family and Consumer Sciences) and there we learn about anorexia and stuff. It's really creepy how some ppl actually STARVE themselves to look thin. Scary.
Also, plz update more often with more cool stories!!!
luv ur blog.

Aish said...

Did you finally get a publisher for your story? Or any other stories you might have written?

Well said. Eat well and exercise well is all that matters. As for the silly people who want to become skeletal, now even the fashion industry (which started this ridiculous pressure to be thin in the first place for their unwearable outfits) has begun to forbid thin models from participating in their shows. Your schoolmates are making a very big mistake. This is your time to grow and if they starve themselves in this foolish fashion, their growth will be permanently affected - something they will rue later.

david, yeah, unless u have a bmi of over 18, u arent allowed to participate. now they have to gain weight! wierd huh! but im happy. did anyone here hear about that brazilian girl, who died of anorexia? she was splattered all over the headlines, and i think this kinda stuff influences children today,

Rheaa said...
