When I was much younger, my connotation of "beautiful" was to have a thin and skinny body. These were frequently the images I saw in the magazines and the television. And like you, I too tried various means to lose the unwanted pounds. I exercised excessively and ate too little, replaced my meals with shakes and I even bought the coffee that will help suppress the appetite. Migosh! I stopped the latter after consuming only one sachet. I was awake the whole night and my throat was dry. The effects of those harmful chemicals were dangerous, I thought.
Moving forward and many years after, I learned to embrace my uniqueness and found the equation: exercise + a healthful lifestyle + moderation = ideal. And as I matured in years and exposed myself to various personalities and circumstances; the meaning of the word altogether changed. A person's character and good qualities were more important.
