Don't Let Your Weight Determine Your
Is the 'I Feel Fat Day' (IFFD) syndrome affecting your output?
That extra flab can overpower you and your work. Thee feeling
of being fat can morph into an emotion like 'happy' or 'angry'.
Days overpowered with that feeling have been designated as
'I Feel Fat Day' (IFFD). So don't let your weight determine
How many times have you heard your colleague quipping, "I
feel fat" or "It's a fat day feeling?" Can't fit into your
favorite pair of jeans? How about a snide comment from a relative
or colleague? That's all it takes to turn an ordinary Monday
or Tuesday into IFFD (I Feel Fat Day).
Perhaps just like the national celebrations, 'fat' is important
enough to get a day named in its honour and it doesn't just
come one a year! Carrying extra pounds is necessary but not
exclusive prerequisite to an IFFD. To have an IFFD, one must
also carry an element of shame. A good IFFD is not complete
without tears, self loathing and a frantic scramble for concealing
So, how to keep away 'fat' from becoming an emotion? Simple
semantics: fat is fat. Don't confuse it with the emotions
so often attached to it, and recognize that shame and self-loathing
are useless distractions. Neither of them will help you get
closer to your goal. The way out is simple: instead of wasting
time and psychic energy on IFFDs, we could use those special
resources for the job at hand.
Here's the ultimate plan for coping with an IFFD:
- Make your very next meal a healthy one. By choosing a
lightly dressed salad instead of the usual, you are putting
yourself on anew path and abruptly ending the IFFD.
- Get Moving. A body in motion is beauty in progress. Even
if it's the middle of the day and you can't hit the gym
because of your tight schedule, you can still go up and
down the stairs.
- Wear something that makes you feel beautiful and enjoy
your unique look.
- Hang out with positive people. Try to be in company of
winners, people who feed you energy and inspire the best
- YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE AND
TRANSFORM YOUR OWN AS WELL. LEARN TO APPRECIATE AND VALUE
Tip: Many of us feel too flabby while making love, feel
too many bulges in the wrong place, feel awkward when lights
are on and ask, what's the way out? Obviously there is hope
and certain exercises, habits and lifestyle changes one can
adopt to get rid of those unsightly fat deposits. You can
strengthen your lower back. It is specially important when
you are working on your abs. Besides that, cut on sodium and
try to create a "V" shape in your upper body. Crunches are
vital in your quest to eliminate love handles. Also reduce
the consumption of alcohol as they contain "empty calories".
The magic key lies with the cardiovascular exercises.
