You’re Getting Bigger – !@#

with me at Baher (23)On the way to mess-hall to get my dinner, I saw my colleague staring at me while he’s eating his suffer. He used to be a close acquaintance of mine when we worked before in Dhahran.

When I was about to leave the mess-hall with my take-out food, he called me and I went to their table with my frown face and he said ” you’re getting bigger”. Ahh, what a jerk, he called me just to say I’m fat without thinking the words coming out on his mouth, I would appreciate if he say “Hi”or How am I” before he said that insensitive words.

Not so long ago, I’m so eager to reduce my weight from 77 kilos I trimmed down to 70 kilos for almost 6 months, everybody noticedΒ  that I lose weight but instead of saying ” you’re doing great” some of my colleague even thought I’m using drugs while some of them were still saying ” I’m getting weight”. What’s wrong with these men they don’t know what I have been through and how I deprived myself from eating my favorite foods like rice, cakes, and ice cream.

And guess what, one of those colleague who told me “I’m fat” was the same man who told me “you’re getting bigger” well just to return the favor of insulting me, I told him “I never been look good to you when I lose my weight before, I even heard the same words to you” (of course, I speak casual with my poker face) and before I leave the place, I asked him “how many month is your tummy again?, I bet it will be a healthy baby boy” and I leave the mess-hall with my take-out dinner and smile when I turned my back.

But you know what, I thank that guy without him I don’t have this story to tell and I’m proud of my body weighing 75 kilos with normal blood pressure and blood sugar, of course I’m aware that I’m “fat” that why every weekend I go to the gym just to run for 20mins and 60 sit-ups just to lower my cholesterol and burn fats.

Am I fat? please see the above picture of me wearing shades and cap with my friend.

    sounds like you’re doing everything healthy and right for your body. usually people who make bad remarks live with lots of insecurities in themselves.

    • Villanueva says:

      hehehe actually you’re right, I don’t know with those people why do they have to tell me I’m big and yet if you can personally sees them I’m more fit and healthier than them. So annoying to start the conversation with your physical appearance, its not right for me. by the way, thanks for dropping by eebrinker and sharing your thoughts as well. πŸ™‚

  2. some people don’t have anything good to say…some feel better when they make others feel less… πŸ˜›

    I was always told if you can’t say anything nice, you shouldn’t say anything. A little harsh and it would mean some people would never speak again. but this might be useful. πŸ˜‰

    Keep up the good work!

    Your blog is very soul searching at times, just remember other peoples insecurities are not your problem, sounds as though you have risen above them. bullying and humiliation of other people is unjust, unnecessary and downright ugly .You’ve taken every opportunity to be positive and still retain wonderful dignity, respect and have the support of a loving happy family. I follow a very interesting blog called “strictl she has a strength of heart an attitude to life due to her passion that is inspiring. Well worth a look.Good luck to you.

    • Villanueva says:

      Hi Alex, thank you for sharing your wisdom and thoughts about what had happened to me a couple of days ago, coming from a person whom I don’t know personally but can understand my situation was a good thing happened to me at least I have some people who boosted my spirit and let me do the things that is good for me. You’re so nice and bless you and I will check the blog you recommended.

    You look great! πŸ™‚ Don’t let other people discourage you from keeping healthy! Sounds like you are doing things right πŸ™‚ Any special diet tips you can give? My brother and I are trying to be healthy too πŸ™‚

    • Villanueva says:

      really I’m so flattered, I don’t have special diet aside from I don’t eat rice at night only lettuce and fish with olive oil, my lunch are composed of rice and fish. in the morning I only eat apples and green tea no sugar and during weekend I go to the gym at least 20 mins of running 2x a week. thank you for dropping by and for the likes πŸ™‚

  7. Word Wabbit says:

    Oh please. You’re not fat! Maybe your friends are just trying to give you a hard time.

  8. don’t let that asshole get to you, he’s probably just looking to get a rise out of you so ignoring him will be more apt than a retort. You are whoever you chose to be and anyone who shares an oppinion like that needs to take a long hard look at themselves (and get slapped in the mush with a big wet fish). Keep smiling and keep writing, kind regards, baldy πŸ™‚

  9. Villanueva says:

    I will baldy, thanks for spending time reading my sentiment πŸ˜‰ I like your imagination by using big wet fish to slapped on his face, I can feel spartacus on you. πŸ™‚ cool

  10. Dude, you’re not fat… I went through the same thing.. everyone kept commenting how I let myself go or whatever and as soon as I lost that weight (plus extra).. No one said jack to me. So then I learned to appreciate everything about my body… at the end of the day, it’s only your opinion that matters. πŸ˜€
    BTW thanks for following and liking… look forward to reading your poetry and posts! PEACE!

    • Villanueva says:

      thanks dancing potato, your words and other who commented on this blog really helped me a lot to move on. I like your post and like you I’m looking forward to read more of your story. πŸ™‚ cheers

  11. spencercourt says:

    You are not fat! I’m 5’6″ and weight 160, which is about 73 kilos. You want to see fat, come visit my part of the US (deep South). “Tabat” is not the proper word; I don’t know the Tagalog word for “obese”. We’re talking huuuuuge…over 300 pounds. If they don’t lose weight, they will die early.

    And maraming salamat for visiting my blog. That ice cream I mentioned eating as a kid was, of course, Magnolia. I can get it at the one Asian store where I live, but it’s $9 per half gallon.

    • Villanueva says:

      tagalog word for obese “sobrang taba” dabyano (male) dabyana (female) or most of the time they used “baboy” (pig in english)

      gratitude for appreciating my blog and spending time to read my blog and for encouraging me as well. ~ Cheer πŸ™‚ I still love the dirty ice cream if you’re familiar with it.

      • spencercourt says:

        OK, thanks! Baboy I know…I miss lechon! At least I can get chicharron here; it is very popular in the South, where it is called “pork rinds.”

      • Villanueva says:

        That’s good to know you have chicharon in your place but be careful and try to control not to each too much, you can also try crispy chicken skin or balat ng manok.

        Good day πŸ™‚

  12. Multianna says:

    You are so not fat and you should be proud of what you’ve achieved until now.
    Thanks for following Marustan’s I hope I can inspire you the same way as you did me with this post.
    Keep up the good work(with your blog and your weightloss!)
