Look, it’s not as if I’ve never tried to tackle my weight. 5 gyms, 1 aerobics class, 1 yoga class, 1 mini gym at home, 3 weightloss DVDs, 1 Feng shui consultation, 1 Kerala ayurvedic stomach balm, 2 dieticians and 4 ‘how to lose weight’ books later, all I’ve lost is hope. The weighing scale never seems to be on the right side of 70 kgs. Even weight fluctuations are a thing of the past. And all I hear from people is how I can’t waste my life away – especially my 20s away, being fat.
Also, there’s the eternal elephant in the room. The big FAT elephant. Sitting there silently during every conversation I have with almost every family member or friend regarding my love life. At this weight, how am I ever gonna find a guy???
Would I be attracted to a fat guy, everyone asks.
Sadly, my answer is always, ‘no’.
