Oh well, don’t get boggled by the fact that I am calling this fragile balance between the two extreme ends of weight gain and weight loss ‘intricate’. I believe that the equilibrium of a perfect body weight, or Body Mass Index as many health-and-nutrition-savvy people may call it, is an epoch of fairy tale or something much like a fantasy. Well, cheers for those who actually manage to keep their weight from going towards any unsafe extreme – sadly, I am not included.
For me and my unshapely body, a little extra sugar in my cake can make my weight swell. Skipping lunch for a day affects my weight so drastically that I have to think twice before actually changing my diet pattern. I am not sure how many ladies out there can relate to my body’s mood, but I know how my weight rises and drops – and so, I consider calling this relationship an intricate one.
My body is very reactive to the presence or absence of food. That is precisely because I love food. I mean, who doesn’t? So good food acts like a blanket, covering my body up and adding to the already climbing weight. And bad food, well, it does the same so I have to make good choices in terms of food because if my weight really has to react, it should be for good food so I’ll know that the little extra pounds are worth it.
I am in awe of those celebrities who tend to continue standing perfectly confident on the scales while I shy away in case my weight makes me collapse. But then, maybe I am overestimating the matter provided that I am in my 40s and gone are my highly contagious days of work-outs and aerobics. Well, I still do jog with my dog in mornings and evening alternatively, but this just doesn’t nail my obsession for a nice weight. The least I can do is keep my wobbling weight in a good BMI range. Checkmate! Aha.
Men have it so easy for them. Certain amazing weight loss pills for men like Gynectrol do wonders for them. So, even though weight matters stay intricate, men can still thrive with any sort of food without worrying about exhausting work-outs and gruesome depression. Whatever you call it, weight is definitely something to be careful about, but this doesn’t mean I shouldn’t kill boredom with a pack of Pringles every once in a while. What say ladies?
