Whenever, we have a free period at school, one of our main topics is how to loose weight. So many girls here way so little and refuse to eat. Just a few years ago, weight was not an issue in the Arab world, everyone looked they way they looked. A little bit more was considered even better. But, that was back then. This is globalization, don't get me wrong, I am not against globalization but not everything is good, and the skinny virus is really bad. It is everywhere.
I'll admit, every time I eat something I think it through, how many calories, how much fat? I feel bad if I ate too much of anything. I jog everyday to keep my weight. I am 168cm and I weigh 55 kilos which is about 5'6 and 121 pounds, and to be honest I wish I could loose 2 to 4 kilos. We are all victims of dictated ideal standards, and I am just one of the millions in that long line.
