Matters of the pounds

It has been my constant companion since childhood. Seasons..friends...pimples..came and went but it never left my side. It stuck to me like a loyal( but dreaded) friend. Even if I tried to shake it off it always managed to find its way back to me, like a bad coin.It has given me sleepless nights and tiresome days. Guess who am I talking about? It is one of the most saddening, despicable and worrisome thing for any girl : Weight!!!! (Ouch :( )

Blame it on anything: post-natal weight, holiday weight, weight due to stress, over-eating..the reasons are plenty..but the outcome is the same.The rightward moving arrow on the weighing machine and the instinctive irritation followed by the imperative, ' This can't be possible!

I've always dreaded seeing those blessed girls who hogged like anything and not an ounce of it showed. I had a couple of friends when I was younger who were like walking-talking bamboo sticks. Where I was fighting with cutting down on calories these girls cried 'se they needed to put on a few kgs! God knows how much I wanted to just.....take out my anger on them :P

I've probably been on diet most of my life (although it doesn't show ;) ). How I've missed eating so many of my favourite dishes! But to no avail. My hard work (read forced exercise) and limited intake have got me nowhere.

So now I've decided. Limitations are good but only to a certain limit. My heart's not under serious pressure right now and I'm not exactly fat as Ugly Betty. I can chill out and live and eat heartily and not worry about what all's gonna happen later. I'd like to believe that my 'cute' factor won't get affected by a few kgs here and there :)

Hai na???

Been there..done that??

Heyyy guys...

Its been quite some time since I last posted and trust me I missed being in action :(

I've been spending some considerable time with my family (sometimes just out of no choice :( ) and have to write this.
I need to share something I'd written some time back and which I didn't get a chance to post earlier. Nevertheless its most appropriate that I pour my heart out today :)

I'd experienced few situations wherein the reaction of my mother and mother-in-law was poles apart and I reckoned that this probably happens with everyone.
I'd also seen some friends go through some awfully silly experiences 'se they could never match the expectations of their so-called MILs. Can you identify with this too??

1. Your laborious experiment in the kitchen was a complete flop!
M : Never mind, try again!
MIL : Our neighbour's D-I-L is so good, she'd never do this!

2. You're planning to go for a movie.
M : Make sure you come straight home after the movie.
MIL : I have some work. Make sure dinner/lunch is ready by the time I'm back.

3.You want to attend your nappy friend's wedding.
M : Enjoy!
MIL : Family functions are important. Is it necessary to go?

4. You've been working late everyday and havent been able to clean up the mess at home.
M : Dont stress yourself. Hire some help.
MIL : You're so lazy. I managed everything on my own,alone.

5. You've put on weight and want to join a gym.
M : Make sure the money you spend doesn't go down the drain.
MIL : There's a truckload of work at home. Why do you need a gym?

6. You want a quiet evening alone with your husband.
M : Would leave you alone and support you.
MIL : This privacy thing is so exaggerated. How can you leave us behind?

7. You're 25. No kids yet.
M : There's time, but don't wait too long.
MIL : At your age I had 2 kids. What's the meaning of not being ready?

8. You have an important presentation to prepare and some guests drop in unexpectedly.
M : You're not needed the whole time, get back to work when you can.
MIL : Its not polite to excuse yourself. How can you expect me to slog alone at this age!

I'm sure I'm gonna receive some real strong replies on this.Well...brickbats and flowers...both are welcome :)
