Nowadays there is quite a big peer pressure, especially among teenage girls. Supermodels are becoming thinner and thinner and therefore more teens starve themselves in order to be seen as ,,beautiful”. Moreover, while some have a fast metabolism and can easily keep in shape, others are not so lucky and lose weight a little bit harder. In their case, they might become unhappy, ashamed with their bodies or maybe even depressed.
Personally, I have to admit that I would like to loose a little weight but I don’t really fancy working out or doing any exercise. I am 1.67m/5,6 ft and 50 kg/110lb and I do 3 hours of street dancing a week, which I think makes me tonify my muscles. I’ve never been told that I am too fat or even plump, but I’ve always been obsessed with loosing some weight. Seeing those models out there who have flat stomaches makes me want to be thinner.
Despite all of these, in my opinion, no one should reach the stage of depression or even unhappines just because of their bodies. Everybody is beautiful in their own way and I’m sure nothing can stand in the way of one’s welfare. If you are healthy, everything comes naturally, particularly when you have your family and friends supporting you.
