The perfect weight

Well an amusing thing happened to me the day before.. in the ladies washroom at work.. I bumped into someone there.. a colleague of mine.. and she said..." you know you have gained weight; i mean in a nice way; you shouldnt lose any weight.. you are perfect like this".. And on sunday, this very sunday (on10th), someone told me that i had lost weight!!! Within 2-3 days, i had 2 extreme opinions!!! :-)

This weight issue is so weird..
1) Weight is one the first things that everyone comments about when you meet them.. i do so myself.. in fact my first comments are usually about weight (unless you are a client in which case i desist unless maybe.. he/she has lost weight).... i dont know why i do it!!! I am sure its not listed in any book as the world's greatest conversation starter.. I say it everytime.. and minute i say it.. i think now why did i have to do that??? Its a natural human tendancy i guess... to talk about weight when you meet someone after a while.. at least with women.. i dont know about men.. do men also do that???
2) You meet 2 people in the same day... one person will promptly say that you have lost weight and the other one will say you have gained weight.. which to believe??? I know I know.. the weighing machine i guess.... but isnt it strange.. i mean 2 ppl in a span of a few hrs have such radically different opinions!!! It is also not a function of time.. I have seen 2 ppl who we meet everyday at work.. giving 2 completely different opinions on the same day!!!
3) And once it is established that you have lost / gained weight, the next step is advice.. either advice on how to gain/ lose weight OR give me advice on how to gain/lose weight!! And pretty enjoyable conversation this!! Enjoyed by women i guess!!!

Every woman has a weight issue.. i have always had a weight issue.. a few yrs back.. 2 to be precise, i used to try everything in the book to gain weight.. tried to have cheese everyday , ice cream everyday etc etc.. but needle would oscillate between 43-44 kg.. at that time my target was to hit 45!!!!
And now post marriage.. i have developed a tummy.. which i want to lose... at least i think i should lose.. have not taken much action!!! So there is always this weight situation.. at every point in life.. or is it only my life? But i have never obsessed about it..

So the million dollar question is ... is there something like a perfect weight???

I'll tell you a secret. You can't even rely on the weighing machine these days. Your weight will vary depending on what time of the day you're weighing yourself, the clothes you're wearing etc. It's quite a pain in all the wrong places, this weight business ;) Guys also notice..they just don't say it. But that's the first thing they'll say about a woman they don't like!

So then what do you rely upon... definitely not ppl!!!!! Never heard guys talking bout weight.. clothes yes but not weight!!

They'll say it if they don't like a girl. They'll bitch about her weight.

I was at the Khar fish market yesterday. I went to one of the fisherwomen whom I had ignored off late as my current favourite did not have all the fish I wanted. Well this lady definitely reads your blog and takes tips on client servicing. After the 'kitna din baad aaya', mujh pe gussa kiya she then told me 'kitna dubla ho gaya!

thank God her using the 'dubla route' worked. I bought 2kg of rohu though I felt the meat was slightly yellow. Had it for dinner yesterday. it was one of the best rohu that I have had in a while

No, someone I know here does it. There's this guy who used to be a very good friend of his at one point of time, and he doesn't like the guy's girlfriend, so he keeps saying that she's going on inflating like a balloon & she's become a buffalo & all that crap. It's mean...but its funny, what to do? :-)
