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???
