Rachel Lee: Listen to your body

I lost a whooping 15kg in just 10 months and it was the skinniest I’ve ever been. Physically, it felt great. I started to receive lots of compliments, guys were chasing me for my looks and figure, family and friends started to tell me that I look more amazing than before. I was chasing after vanity, I was chasing for acceptance. However, to get there, I lost a total of 8kg of lean muscle while chasing my “dream” of being skinny. I did tons of cardio and HIIT

Jolyn Nickole Chia: Save some love for yourself

Body image has always been a struggle for me since I was young. Standing at a mere 152cm, I’ve always wanted to compensate for my lack of height by trying to lose more weight. Unequipped with any knowledge of losing weight and of course, catching onto the social media bug, I started trying to lose weight by overexercising and undereating. I remember the 30-minute treadmill run almost daily after work, followed by workouts for another 1.5 hours. I would then go home

Michelle Lim: Live life on your own terms

For as long as I can remember, I struggled with my self-esteem. Because of my height and my build, I was always referred to as the “big one” and it made me very self-conscious. I couldn’t fit into the same types of clothes that my friends could and I always felt like a giant amongst my friends. I hated the way I looked and I desperately wanted to lose weight and (miraculously) become shorter. I thought that I didn’t deserve happiness because I didn’t fit the

Michelle Yang: Believe in yourself even if no one does

I was never a thin or skinny girl. My heaviest weight was 96kg at the age of 13 years old and I was considered obese. Everyone called me all kinds of names linked to fatty or piggy and not many people wanted to be my friend due to how I looked (because of how fat I was), hence I had very few friends. Boys I liked never liked me back and when I eventually had one, he left me for a skinnier and prettier girl. There was even a period of time where my own

Netty Lie: Love your imperfections

I have always been a tall slender girl for my entire life and my weight had never exceeded 60kg in the past. Then I got married and pregnant in the same year and gained a crazy 25kg in my first pregnancy. I remember being a shocking 85kg super huge pregnant mama at the end of my pregnancy and it was a bit depressing. Luckily I managed to lose 20kg of that weight when my son turned 8 months old by almost exclusively breastfeeding him. I went on to conceive my

  • 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
