I saw an ex-colleague today during lunch time. I haven’t been seeing her for quite a while since she last resigned in my previous company, probably a year or so ago.As we walked passed each other, we instantly recognized and stopped by for a quick chat amidst the crowds going for lunch at KL Central.

She remarked on how much weight I have lost. Am I on a diet? At that instant, I didn’t know how to reply her. I just replied, umm, yeah. Do I defend myself or what? She is just being honest. She looks pretty good, and I didn’t have a chance to tell her. I was rather tounge-tied but quite happy to see a familiar face when the world doesn’t look quite cheery on a Monday.

I felt that I am losing my weight too. Not that I always have normal weight but somehow I feel skinny as I always been when I grew up.It could be of my new pair of jeans that are a little too loose for me. Or perhaps the long sleeve top makes me appear skinnier.

Or perhaps I really need to gain a few pounds, seriously?Do I like being thin? I don’t know. Its not that I got a choice to make. I am just thin, since young. I never have to worry how much food I can eat or if it is too much calories.

But sometimes people just assumed that I want to be so thin. Or think that I am just starving myself to be thin to look good, which is not fair. Or they just envy me being thin but it’s not as good as they thought.Thin people have their problem too. Do they? Yes. It is difficult to find a pair of jeans that fits u nicely. Coz u dun have enough flesh to fill it up, anywhere. Almost too many clothes look like as if they are hanging over your body, instead of you wearing them.

Thin doesn’t mean healthy. It could mean otherwise.One good thing though, u never did really outgrown your clothes. I can wear my same skirt I have 10 years ago, or was it 11 years? And yeah, so I have lots of old clothes which I had accumulated throughout the years and didn’t throw though it is out of style and old coz I still can wear it, if I ever choose to do so, but I almost never did.

Which is not so good after all. I need to throw some or give them away.Too much clutters.

Yeah, so being thin is fine. It’s not great or bad. But it’s alright.

    Awesome! you could still wear the skirt that you had 10 years ago. So, which means that you have successfully maintain your weight/waist for at least 10 years. Guess what? I could wear those pants that i bought 11 years ago after a 1.5 years of Personal Training session in Fitness First. This CNY people comments on me is “you are lean and pumped up” :-)

    i think being thin is fine too.

    the main thing is to be happy and comfortable with oneself.
