The Over-inflated-balloon-effect

The obsession with sticking needles in your face is becoming alarmingly more popular. I keep reading about people having had botched surgery, things going wrong etc and I wonder why people continue to do it. To me, its not necessarily the person doing the procedure who is to blame, but the body merely telling the chemicals that they don’t mix. Or to tell the person getting the procedure that they look ridiculous and they should spend the money on something that they actually need like a new fridge or something. It especially annoys me when people have surgery when they have children. Its not setting a good example and it would seem that they are focusing their attention on their looks than focusing on their family.

And then theres botox. Why deny it? Everyone gets old. I’d rather look wrinkly and show that I’ve shown emotion than look like an over inflated balloon with two raw sausages for lips…


The Fad Diet

The detox, the babyfood diet, the rainbow diet, the atkins diet. Most women have tried, or considered at least one fad diet in their lifetime. There are some that are all liquid (soups, shakes etc), all carbs, no carbs, the list goes on.
Then we have fitness fads, most recently, after “The Wedding of the Century”, of Prince William and Kate Middleton, people aspired to have a ‘Pippa Bum’. I cant think off the top of my head other body-morphosis fitness fads right now, but theres bound to be some along the lines of ‘get arms like so-and-so’.
I’m no expert on fitness and diets, but in my opinion, just eating a healthy balanced diet should be sufficient enough. Treat yourself now and again and don’t be a martyr to that delicious-looking chocolate cake.
As far as body-morphosis goes, I don’t think it would be possible to emulate an exact shape of an individual. If you’re a certain shape, it’ll stay like that, whether its a thin pear or a bigger pear.
I want chocolate cake now…
