How to Love Your Body Size



I've gained weight probably 8 kg since I came back from Manchester. Living in Bangkok means that you can find delicious food and dessert 24/7. So, who else to blame except me? Actually, I exercise 4 to 5 days a week, but the weight seems to be stable...Maybe I just can't cut down the portion of rice and bread...What more can I say? I can't live without these though. I felt ashamed of my body, and didn't have any confidence to wear the sleeveless tank-top anymore, due to the massive arms I have had. However, I've found a peaceful state of mind to make me feel like "it's ok" to wear whatever I like. Therefore, if you are with me, I hope this post can somehow uplift the spirit of dwelling on your body size. 

ในฐานะที่เป็นแฟชั่นบล็อกเกอร์ไทยคนหนึ่งก็อยากจะบอกว่าเรื่องไซส์นะไม่สำคัญหรอกค่ะว่าคนอื่นจะคิดกับเราว่าอย่างไร เพราะทุกอย่างมันขึ้นที่ตัวเราเอง 


STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS...INSTAGRAM IS JUST A PLATFORM, AND NO NEED TO HOLD ON TO THAT


Obviously, Instagram is one of the platforms I have used the most. However, if you have followed me on The Equinox Fashion Instagram ( @thequinoxfashion) for a while, you will be able to notice that I have never posted any photos of myself wearing a sexy dress...I kept comparing myself to other girls out there on IG, and it was like "nahh I'm fat" I'm not going to lie, but being a fashion blogger can make me feel self-conscious sometimes. How can some people look so perfect all the time, while I'm like top, shorts and my cellulite legs. This is not good...Not good at all. 



So, stop comparing or judging yourself to others. You know Instagram is just Instagram. Some can look like a goddess, while some do not look like that in person. I have come across a lot of girls who look absolutely stunning; very skinny, tall and so lean, but when I met them in real life, I thought mobile application is the winner here. We all can use those apps to look flawless since this online world is a tacky sphere. The standard of beauty is there. Just so you know, to be beautiful doesn't mean that you have to have the model body,instead 'it has to come from within'. 


AS LONG AS YOU ARE HEALTHY, NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT


That's right, this is what I think. When people tell me that I look like this/that, I always respond "I am healthy, so?" Well, it is not good to be overweight, because you know what will come after right? All of the diseases are caused by what we consume (stress, and genetics too). Therefore, if we only eat junk food, our body will be filled with fat, sugar, etc. Meanwhile, being skinny doesn't mean that our health is perfect. So, what's the meaning here? You can choose to be "YOU" No matter what size you are, as long as, you are healthy, that's more than enough!




I don't like cellulite on my limbs, yet I don't wanna be skinny. So, my goal is to lose a few more weight and keep living this healthy life. Maybe, I just love food too much to skip any meals :)

Shorts- Boohoo

Hat- H&M

โอเคการที่คนเรามีรูปร่างอวบอ้วนแน่นอนว่าปัญหาสุขภาพนั้นตามมาแน่นอนในอนาคตเพราะทุกอย่างขึ้นอยู่กับวิถีการกินว่าเราเลือกที่จะบริโภคอะไร แต่อย่างไรก็ตามคนที่หุ่นดีรูปร่างผอมก็ไม่ได้หมายความว่าจะเป็นคนที่มีสุขภาพแข็งแรงเสมอไป ดังนั้นไม่ว่าจะมีรูปร่างแบบไหนขอแค่ให้มีสุขภาพที่ดีไม่มีโรคแก้วก็ถือว่าโอเคแล้วค่ะ เลิกเปรียบเทียบตัวเองกับคนอื่นๆบนอินสตาแกรมเพราะบางคนก็ไม่ได้มีรูปร่างแบบนั้นจริงๆเมื่อเจอตัวเป็นๆ ทุกอย่างมันคือโลกออนไลน์ดังนั้นเปรียบเทียบไปก็ทำให้ตัวเองรู้สึกแย่ปล่าวๆ เนอะ

  4. ah, comparing yourself to others really never does any good to anyone. and you're right in saying that even if you think someone looks "perfect" on instagram, that's not who they really are but a mere picture. i've put on weight in recent years and although there's occasionally times when i miss my slimmer body, i definitely don't want to be skinnier again. and it is importat to stay healthy (but gotta love eating, too!). anyway, you look amazing as always! xxx

  5. I really think you have an amazing figure hun- you have lovely slim legs :) I agree that comparing our bodies to other peoples is so toxic. I often find myself getting down about my weight but you are right when you say that health is the most important thing.

  22. It's so important to love your body! I feel like as long as you're healthy, then everything's fine. It annoys me when they have these anorexic mannequins in shops, like it's such a negative thing to see in every shop window.
