Do you look good?
What kind of a question is that, right?
In today’s world, looking good is no longer difficult. If the makeup on your face doesn’t suffice, the after photograph brush up surely does.
Everyone feels beautiful, as they should’ve without needing these things in the first place, but who am I to say?But no matter what we do, there will always be those few people who will manage to rain on your parade. So a funny thing happened about a week ago, that got me thinking about it.
My last pair of jeans that still could amazingly fit me, ceased to. I tried jumping up and down, attempting to wriggle my way in, but it blocked my every attempt. So I did what anyone would in an emergency. I bought a new pair, which, after counting my remaining shrunken jeans; as I called them, became my sixth owned.
On returning back to home, I found my aunt sitting with dear mother, sipping coffee. And after the pleasantries were exchanged, the topic soon shifted to my fat cells.
Let’s put it this way, she seemed shocked that I was getting a bit heavier than before. Now, don’t go thinking I’m fat. I’m 5″3 and weigh only 55kgs. But my main problem is my tummy fat. Well, in my defense, it used to be a completely harmless baby fat. I just forgot to stop it from growing. So in a sense, I am perceived as fat.
I reminded her that I work and study simultaneously for 16 hrs a day. I don’t really have time for working out. She cited an example of her own daughter, who is jobless by the way; and searching for a wealthy soulmate.
And that made me realise that you can never win an argument without letting go of your manners. But I haven’t really ever been able to do that so I sat there calmly, listening to every bit of their weight control talks, eating the leftover Christmas cake.
Because when life gives you healthy calories, you eat it.
My new jeans totally rock by the way! They’re the latest in fashion world and I don’t think that I’d have gotten around to purchasing them if the old ones hadn’t failed me.
So, in a way, gaining weight hasn’t slimmed down my opportunities, just increased them.😏😋😜
