Concern

The headline in The Star today, Hell-bent on Looking Thin drew my attention, without wasting any time, I read the details. Eating disorder doesn’t only prevail in developed countries but it’s getting a place in Malaysia too.

How many will actually value or appreciate internal beauty? In the contrary, most regard slim ladies as clever, efficient and pretty; overweight ladies as stupid, clumsy and ugly. What such a melancholy sight?! This indirectly leads to fatal eating disorders like anorexia nervosa and bulimia among teenage girls. The consequences can be really devastating and irreversible if no proper treatment and consultation taken.

I don’t deny I wish to be slim as well, and to be honest, I’m struggling to slim down and feel guilty whenever I eat supper or oily food. “smile”. Maybe I regard myself staying in a world connected with people, and I couldn’t get rid of the peer pressure where slimness is so important for a girl. But, try to think, what’s the point of living a life without savoring nice food?

For me, slimness is just like a pearl, which is just sand actually, but we value it so much. We are foolish enough, aren't we? Sometimes I wonder why human values gold instead of pebble, look at and think of it, both simply are just dirt before going through any refinement. “smile”. Actually whether fat or slim is not a big deal as long as we are healthy.

p/s: Log on to The Star to look for more details regarding this topic.

but even for the world in working industry your appearance matter, if you are not slim or at least neat looking, it is hard to get a job.

however, being my size, i do not deny some fact that the physical features DO reflect some bad images / habits. Usually those who are big sized have odour, oily face or improper management of physical body. I admit, even myself i dun manage properly >_<

and its hard to look good with extra tyres, cuz all the shirt malaysia sell is tiny tiny XXXS size, we malaysian do not have such an open mind as Americans.

then its also hard to walk, breath or do anything with extra baggage with you, its even hard to think or study. In addition to that, we (i include myself in the obesity group) have difficulty in controlling what we eat, hence eat more than other people. And sometimes the food intake scares people

but one thing is for sure, we are usually kind hearted. (maybe cuz we can only offer the inside and not out)

XDDDD dun bang me if offended *hides*

Americans, unlike Malaysians really vote based on voice and singing quality but not appearance. This is what we, Malaysians should learn.

but even for the world in working industry your appearance matter, if you are not slim or at least neat looking, it is hard to get a job.>>>> There is a bit "size discrimination" in this.

Usually those who are big sized have odour, oily face or improper management of physical body >>>> I think there are ways to control

eat more than other people.>>> It's not wrong to do so. I myself can eat a lot as well.

we are usually kind hearted >>>"smile" no comment

however, appearace do matter, specially when you try to get a business contract signed or make a sale. Even us, if you go to a store, there is a non good lookng girl with lausy facial expression, we will most probrably just ask what we want to know and get out of there. But if it is a preety friendly looking girl, we will tend to ask more irrelevent question and hog around.

<<<<<<
yes there is, however, those with such weight tend to have more oily face than normal people does, it is not their fault, and it is hard to control, as the body generate waster twice or three times as more


eat more than other people.>>> It's not wrong to do so. I myself can eat a lot as well.

it may not be wrong, and i didnt say its wrong (look at how dolphin eat and you will think that his meal can save the afican hungry colony -_-lll) but it do scare people, specially guys. Grab a guy and ask, will they think bout it? I mean u see a girl ordering a plate of rice and veg in the size of a mountain.


And most importantly, look around you, tv shows specially, since when do they have fat people or even slightly plump people in tv? All are skinny sticks. And people usually want to see leng lui, no one wanna see fei po.

Damson said...

Who say FEI PO no leng lui? lol...and erm...khai yuen ate alot..I mean..really alot...but then he is still slim...actually eating alot is ok...just depends on how your control your meal and how you give in the effort to maintain your weight through time...diet or food denial is just foolish for me...lol...exercise and maintaining your health is the best way....hey...if you say fat ppl are clumsy ugly and stupid or wat...then...no offense...FK....er...hehehe....lol...she is SMART! NOT CLUMSY! KINDA ok wat...where got ugly... as I say, fat ppl also have cute and pretty 1...

well about the oily thing...i dont know...coz im fat...but i dont think my face "produces" alot of oils...swt...hey and erm...btw jess...you are not fat at all...and I dont see any sign of weight loss needed on you...I mean you were just ok...dont think to become like OS...that kills....

~K£cќ~ said...

Damson, u got high probability to be killed for your comment you know XDXD ....

Well some are just in the genes ... although they eat less they still do not become slim =.= ... cant blame them wat not that they wanted to be fat. If you can handle your appearance well it doesnt matter whether slim or fat is a problem. Its just how you present yourself and get accepted. But i dont deny that its harder for those who are overweight =.=

but one thing is for sure, we are usually kind hearted. >>> i agree with this
