In today’s western culture, we’re always told what’s right and wrong, what’s good and bad. In most our minds skinny, toned, and/or muscular is the ideal body. Why is it that it’s unappealing, even called disgusting, if we have extra body fat or stretch marks? Why is that some men and women stopped engaging in aquatic activities, fearing that people won’t accept their bodies? Why can’t we as individuals accept who were are and be comfortable in our own skin?
Media advertises petite fit models, while hardly ever having an overweight model. We grow up seeing these images and perceive that they’re right. We see television ads about men and women who take weight loss supplements. In these ads, there’s always a before and after picture, and a statement from a former customer saying how this changed their lives. Of course, this is propaganda, because the company wants to sell their product, but is it worth incinerating the self-esteem of individuals who are/think they are overweight?
Plastic surgery is probably one of the best paying jobs in the medical field in major cities like Beverly Hills and Miami. Some say plastic surgery changed their lives. It may “change” your life, but the costly expense may also too. On average it’ll cost $5,350 for a tummy tuck, $3,888 for breast implants, and $2,700 for liposuction.
Many people will work out extensionally and hardly eat thinking they’ll lose weight. When actually doing this will slow your metabolism, thus you’ll gain weight then actually putting it off.
Being overweight can be a health risk, but you only live once. Why spend your life stressing over why you don’t have the ideal body? Instead, you should be comfortable with yourself and you’re body and live life to the fullest.
