Weight and Body Image Issues

I think that I try to lose weight at some point every single year without fail sometimes it’s successful, most times it’s not especially because my love for food is so much greater than my care about accept social standards of what I should look like or what I should weigh.

The other day I got one of these Facebook notifications that shows you like a photo from years back and I saw this picture and I was thin based on my own idea of what thin is and I’m positive that even at that time I got comments on my weight even at the time I may have even gotten some “you are getting fat o!”

I’ve heard of people not getting the jobs they want because they are too skinny or too fat , the other day a discussion about an actress came up, she used to be plus sized but has since lost weight now, she’s great at acting but it was noted that she may not have gotten has many acting jobs as she does now if she were still plus sized as if it’s impossible that the characters she has played cannot be plus sized

my conclusion is that no Matter what ones size is people will make comments , “you’ve gotten fat”, “ahn ahn you’re so skinny”, “why aren’t you eating ?”, “you better start eating healthier meals” the unsolicited opinions that never end.

This brings me to my next point which is specifically directed at Nigerians commenting on a persons weight isn’t a greeting, or a pleasantry every time you meet someone and you have the urge to comment on their weight say a little prayer in your head instead that god gives you the grace to mind your business and focus on your own weight instead and minding the business that pays you.

Thank you for reading, before I go I would like to know what the beauty standards are where you are from or where you live?and how that has affected or not affected how you view your body.
