Skinny These Days
Whoever said a closed mouth doesn’t get fed was wrong; it’s easier than ever to be skinny these days. You may have a tube installed that drips liquid food into your stomach; get a gastric bypass or lap-band surgery. There are twenty four hour gymnasiums and healthy food choices and resources available at your disposal. New fashion trends seem to be geared towards your thin brethren. You can let yourself go, get a procedure, and a new pair of skinny jeans to wear to the New Year’s party. There are slimming garments to be worn beneath clothes to win the battle of the bulge. There are pills to be taken that supposedly melt fat away.
Skinny is a trend. Back in the day, models were plump, and weight symbolized wealth. If there is another ice-age any time soon, who’ll be unhealthy then? Obviously if you get your ideal body type from a magazine or television, being overweight may seem like a bummer. As if every day is some pool party for the skinny folks. Skinny people can never eat as recklessly as you. They get endorphins from running marathons but nothing beats a buffet. Plus you can be skinny if you want to, they could never get so big. They cry over a few vanity pounds, dainty and petite figures dieting and toiling.
Let your gut hang. There is no shame to be had in your physique. I see fat people depicted on TV crying and blubbering about their weight. I want to look into their fat eyes and tell them that there is nothing wrong with them. All you have to do to be skinny is eat less, smaller portions, not late at night, less sodium, less processed foods, more fruits and veggies and less fatty foods. It will hurt to change your habits, no point belly aching about it.
