Leaf #7

If you want to know whether you're skinny, thin, fat, too fat, or just have a normal weight, check this test. Well, I think you already know how comfortable you are with your body, and don't need this sort of tests to tell you about it, but try it anyway. I got an average between 19 and 20, ya3neh somewhere between: "you're skinny, eat more", and "you have the right weight, don't change". Goodie, I can choose! To tell you the truth, I never had a problem with my weight, and never thought of depriving myself from a high-calorie dish in the middle of the night. Not just because I'm not over-weighted, but because of this: "if I don't enjoy this dish now, when will I? in the afterlife?". Since yesterday, it has been a year or so since I last weighed myself. Actually, there were even times in the past when I had to gain more kilos (especially when I broke up with that damned ex of mine, who turned out to be a real ******). Number of times in my life, when I tried to go on a diet: one (I know, I never understood those skinny people who think they need a diet too); because I thought I could use losing a couple of kilos, but ended up gaining more. So, now I just rely on the amount of emotional stress and heartbreaks to keep my weight steady… that and regular visits to the gym, which I'm not paying currently, for several reasons.

I usually receive this question from a lot of people: "do you think I gained some kilos since the last time you saw me?" My answer never changes: "I don't know, I don't take a notice of these things." Although they never get me, but this is the truth indeed. I would never know if a friend gained or lost a few pounds, even if it were that obvious. I can't really tell if the persons I care for are over-weighted or not. As long as they are comfortable with their selves, I can't see why it really should matter. Halla2, akeed you'd want your boyfriend for example to have the body of a Clooney instead of a Gandhi, but life isn’t that perfect :)

أول مرة اشوف الفائدة من الــ
emotional stress و heartbreaks

بس على فكرة كتير ناس لما بتمر بهيدي الظروف بتصير تتناول كمية كبيرة من الطعام و بالتالي بيصير عندها زيادة في الوزن، بعني هي مش على طول مفيدة لهيدي الحالة

انا فرحان اني تجاوزت الاختبار ، و كانت النتيجة 23 يعني وزني سليم، ومش ضروري اتوقف عن تناول البيتزا بشكل يومي،لأني أفضل الموت من زيادة الوزن و لا أفضل التوقف عن التهام البيتزا

You just gotta know someone's in her twenties when she says: "...I never had a problem with my weight.". Just wait, Kiddo -- when you get to forty, fifty, sixty - the kilos will just add on by themselves. They don't need any help from you!! FAT calories are everywhere, flying around in the air, and your body will just adsorb them and suck them in thru your pores - all the time you are on 1000 calories a day!!

I was excited about taking your fat test, but then I CLICKED, and presto -- ARABIC!!! The only language I don't read! Isn't that just the way it always is?

Am enjoying your blob - keep it up!

p.s.; blob -- Did I say blob? Sigmund, where are you when I need you? Musta been the talk about fat which make me misspell it!

Tell you what Barney, I'll get back to you when I'm sixty, just to tell you: see, I was right! ;)

Sorry about the arabic test. Type your weight in the first box, ur height in the second, and then press the "arabic enter"..tell me what number u got, and I'll finally tell you about the long-awaited result. Remember, I hold your fate in my hands :p

You don't have to wait till you are 60; you'll find out by the time you are 36 or 37!

I am supposed to enter my weight in kg, I assume, but what units for height? Meters: Centimeters? Micro-millimeters? What? Don't forget, I'm one of those poor uneducated idiots from the States where we still use feet and ounces! (sm)

For your information, and only yours - (please keep these data confidential) - I'm 5'8" and weigh 160 # or 11.43 stones!

...and there couldn't be safer hands for holding my fete!

Oops -- really messed up on that last message, didn't I?

Oh yeah, I forgot about the p.u.i from the States, plz accept my sincere apologies! So, use cm for height and Kg for weight, as we, average intellectuals of the world, do :p
Don't worry about the confidential data. I doubt anyone will ask :)
