How Body Positivity Movement Has Turned Toxic

How Body Positivity Movement Has Turned Toxic

When I started this blog, I did not want to touch this subject because I know how it is affecting people. I know how people can get very defensive when this subject is brought up, and I don’t want to reopen the wound, or make it worse… but I think something needs to be said. It started when I was watching one of Dr. Mike’s video. Yes, Dr. Mike — the legitimate doctor who did study medical, and shared his…

What Is Your Body Type?

What Is Your Body Type?

I used to ignore this when I was younger, because I thought that this information was useless — mainly used by fashion magazines to help people finding clothes which looks good on their shape. And, not only useless, but also very very outdated too. There are two ways of classifying your body type. The first one is the one I heard a lot since I was younger: Apple, Pear, Rectangle, and Hourglass body type. And the second one is actually…

How Your Food Culture Affects Your Relationship With Food

How Your Food Culture Affects Your Relationship With Food

“Itadakimasu” Of all food culture in the world, I love the Japanese the most. Before they eat, they would put their hands together in front of their food, bow a little, and say “Itadakimasu”.

Weigh In Wednesday: One Month, Lighter and Brighter Already :)

Weigh in first, and then we get to celebrate. Shall we? Why didn’t I think about using tables before? I don’t know, but surely this is a much better way of presenting a statistic, isn’t it? Seven hundred grams. It seems small, but for me it is good…

Weight Loss and Mental Health

Weight Loss and Mental Health

My first ever encounter with the word ‘diet‘ was when I was around 9 or 10 years old. Definitely not more than twelve, and I am sure I was still studying in Primary School. One of my school friend was a child model. She was so pretty, and obviously because she was exposed to modelling world, she was ahead of us in this body image industry. Sometimes I wonder if she is still doing this for a living, but at…

The Importance of Support System

The Importance of Support System

I think this is why weight management companies are popular. Having a support system is definitely a plus point when you are trying to lose weight. Having someone who is going to recognise your achievement, or push you harder for that extra mile, to shift that extra kilo… Some of us know the pain of trying to eat healthy while the other family members are not on board with the idea of swapping the butter with sunflower spread. Oh yes,…
