I am thinking aloud about old school days when I could eat bread rolls,samosas,aloo bondas to my hearts content without having to worry about love handles ( fat deposit on ones waistline)When ,"calorie count"was an alien concept and eating more was,"IN" speaking of skinny-The fad was to have some jiggle here and there;) It was considered the sign of prosperity. I remember as kids we would travel to Pune,India to meet up with our aunts & uncles once every year. After the customary greetings with my parents at the railway station,my uncle & aunts would turn to us (me & my siblings)and exclaim in bewilderment," look at you-you look so weak,someone has to just blow in your face & you would fall like a twig" Exasperated we would mutter under our breadth. We dreaded the outcome-Dad would now give us the deworming tablets- arghhh !!! Hopeful that we would get rid of the underlying problem and look more healthy(prosperous) .
That was bygone era, and here I am-Constantly fighting with the weight :)
Here's to old times sake :)
