Beryl: Your body is the best investment you can make

I stumbled upon an old picture and realised how time flies! The photo on the left was from over a year ago - a time when I didn't have a waistline, I lacked confidence in myself and I only dared to wear black... because it makes you look slimmer. I remember those were the days when I prioritised work above all else, neglecting my health and my body. The day came when I wanted to change and become a better person, inside out. So I signed up for a gym membership, got myself a personal

Yeo Wanling: Give up on unhealthy thoughts and behaviours

To define self-love as "accepting and appreciating yourself for who you are" is such a difficult concept to grasp. It's definitely easier said than done and I don't deny that I'm still struggling to come to terms with it even up till now. Many people know that I exercise regularly, but I guess not many know that I started working out because I disliked the way I look. I've tried all sorts of methods - from intensive cardio to weight lifting, restricting my carb

Adeline Cheah: I want you to know that you are loveable

When I was young, I never knew what self-love meant. I never loved myself. Boys sneered and told me in my face that they would only give me a score of "C" based on my looks and figure. Yet, I was so eager to get their attention and be accepted - that I gambled my health away. My battle with myself began. My period stopped for months, my pelvic bones started to show, my pants started to drop and my hair was falling out in clumps. I dreaded the sight of myself and my reflection

Rachel Lim: My clothes are no longer cages for my body, my mirror is no longer a magnifying glass for my flaws

I hesitated with this post as I didn’t think I had an issue with my body image until a close friend of mine told me about Rock The Naked Truth. I then realised how much I was beating myself up for my weight gains even though I am already underweight. In 2013/4, I told myself that I had to start working out ever since I found out that I had high cholesterol. My height (164cm) and weight (42kg) have been constant since I was 14. I am now 22 years old and still at the same height. Last

Verna Goh: I won't let anyone dull my sparkle

I've always been into running, easily clocking 5km on the treadmill during my gym sessions, but I only started getting serious about it in April 2015 when I experienced my first heartbreak and possibly one of the hardest experiences in my life. It was not a healthy, perhaps even toxic relationship, and I emerged from it feeling unhappy and sad. I felt that I had lost myself in the midst of the relationship. Somehow, by a stroke of luck, I had signed up for my first run in Singapore at

  • It may be bothering you more than it should be and you know you shouldn’t let it affect you, but you can’t help it. It’s bugging you day and night, especially when you’re alone. It will take time to get over it, but don’t stop working at moving on... because one day you will look back and laugh at how much this used to bother you. #rockthenakedtruth

  • Paula Abdul started dancing at a young age and she learned that she didn't fit in physically, which led to her being rejected countless times at auditions.
•
She went to a dance camp at the age of 15 and that's where she learnt how her dance friends kept themselves so thin. They would make themselves vomit after they ate. •
So at the age of 16, Paula began to use this unhealthy tactic as a way of controlling her weight. This was the start of her 17 years in the hell of bulimia.
•
Paula rose to fame when her talent was discovered and the desire to stay thin intensified. She felt nervous and out of control, and all she could think about was food. Food numbed the fear and anxiety. She would eat and thn punge. •
In 1994, Paula decided to seek professional help and went through a month-long bulimia treatment programme. Finally, her 17-year battle came to an end. •
Through therapy, Paula realised that her bulimia was a way of suppressing her feelings. Dealing with her neglected emotions helped her to recover too.

Thus, don’t keep everything in all the time. Find a trusted adult to speak to or look for a professional who can help you. You don’t have to go through this alone. #rockthenakedtruth
  • It may be hard to cut someone loose, but sometimes it is necessary. Find that courage to walk away. It will hurt for a while but you will feel much better in time. #rockthenakedtruth
