While I wait for my food to get ready, I’ll make a few doodles here.
I read a lot. Among the things I read daily, are blogs, newspapers, and the occasional book. If anything among these three, that I do get hung up on, it’s the newspapers. Especially the articles on weight loss and the ones on how fit you’re supposed to be. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for exercise and I exercise way too little. Most the articles try to attract readers by having headlines that read something in lines of “How to lose 20kg in two weeks”. My reaction? Not possible unless you go for a lipo-suction, and I’m not a big fan of people resorting to such measures if they haven’t tried everything else before going under the knife.
Usually, I find these articles in a very popular newspaper here. Today, I found something that caught my attention. A video of a PT (personal trainer) that has worked with many models (read Victoria’s Secret). And I’m a very huge fan of the VS fashion show, mostly because these girls shine incredibly much (and they’re mind-blowingly beautiful) but also because the show gives me a great amount of inspiration. Back to my point, in this video the trainer said something that immediately etched itself in my mind: You look at the models and you say you wanna look like that. You’ll never look like that, because that is not you. Not your body. I don’t think I could’ve said it better myself. I don’t think anyone ever thinks that their body is unique, and even though you might not be size zero (which is totally wrong btw) you could still be at your body’s fittest. So go for model-fit, and not model-thin.
Here’s the video, they speak English so don’t worry :)
