I heard somebody calling me "Eugene, Eugene" as i looked over my shoulder briefly, couldn't recognize anyone, so i walked on. Out of nowhere came a lady who gave me a pat on my shoulder and said " hey i am Christine, you cannot recognize me or what ?" meekly i told her indeed i could not recognize her. Why ? Simply because she has "blown out of proportion" in term of physical appearance, and she is not the Christine that i knew during our working days again in term of physical appearance. I asked her if she wanted to join me for lunch, and she agreed. Over the lunch and as usual we talked about those days when we were collegues, and asking about the other collegues' current condition as well, but there was just one thing that i really wanted to get off my chest during our lunch. "Christine, how the heck did you gain all those weight, or how did you turn from Quarter Pounder to Big Mac ( I love this analogy because we were once working in McD)?
And finally i did manage to ask "Christine, how did you turn from Quarter Pounder to Big Mac?" She responded with a smile saying that she had no time for herself,lest exercise. Almost all of her time is spent for the children and the household, and she explained in details what she would do day in and day out. I totally agree with her that indeed she is one such busy woman. When i told her to allot sometime just for herself or to indulge in some forms of exercise like going to the gym or aerobic classes, the same answer she gave, and probably she enjoys what she is doing.
I remember many years ago, exercise was a no no for my wife, everytime when i went for my run especially during the weekend, she would just glue herself to the idiot box, after months of persuasion, she finally started to run and it has become a part of her now, she feels more energetic, healthy and most all of all, she feels good about herself now.
So ladies, give yourself a break, you really deserve it or rather your body really needs it. Keep that body of yours pumping and soon enough, you will feel so good about yourself, and your perceptive towards yourself will change, that in return will give you a sense of worthiness. I have read so many stories about how exercise could change a WOMAN, to heal her from ailments, to shed those unwanted fat and to get her feel so good about herself again.
If you look yourself at the mirror now, and you are whinning and complaining at how you look, and you start pinching on that tummy fat that almost dislodges from your torso, and you know it is time for you to start doing some exercises already.
P/S: Your body is beautiful, so let it shine
