Wantheng: You don’t need the approval of others

It might seem like I’ve always enjoy going to the gym and eating healthy, but the truth is, it hasn’t always been like that. Back then, I first started working out because I hated my body. I’ve been called nasty names about massive thighs, round tummy and being flat chested. On the surface I joke about it, but in the dark I put myself through countless diets, binging till I felt disgusted and threw up, then ended up hating myself even more. I did all of that in

Chay Xinyi: On the right track to gaining confidence

My close group of friends has always considered me as one of the “thinner girls”. Those are their thoughts, not mine though. I see myself with flabby arms, a bloated tummy, a big butt and thunder thighs even till now as I am typing. When I choose to wear body-fitting clothes, I try to suck in my tummy as soon as I step out of the house. To me, it’s a “sacrifice” I have to make to look thin. After going to the gym twice a week for a few months, I changed

Chelza Chong: Everybody has a different body shape

A few years back, I was really conscious and obsessed about my body image. I would starve and exercise like mad to fit into the smallest sizes available in stores. I felt giddy and lethargic most of the time. Luckily, I met my current boyfriend and he encouraged me to love myself for who I am. I learnt to eat healthily, to see exercise not as a form of dieting and also, to accept my body for how it is. Everyone has a different body shape after all. Though I still do not have the

Alina Toh: Choose to be healthy over skinny

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share my story of me being inferior about the size of my body when I was around the age of 17 and how I’ve since changed my perspective – of a healthy body over a slim body. When I was around 17-18, I was so influenced by social media that having a slim body was the “IN” thing. I exercised so hard almost everyday and cut from three meals to just one a day. At that time, I slimmed down till I was 45kg and I still

  • 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
