"People Think I'm Not Healthy Because I'm Too Thin"

"Pumayat ka."

I have heard these words a million times since I was a kid. My body has always been small. This is also probably why I look younger than my actual age. Due to my skinny body, my grandmother tried giving me a lot of vitamins and supplements. Too bad nothing worked on me. Some would tell me that it's in our family's genes to have a thin body at a young age. I have cousins whose bodies are the same as mine so I didn't really mind back then.

When I got in high school, I would gain a little weight during summer breaks. But when school started again, the weight I gained would just disappear like a bubble. It's funny how easy it is for my body to lose weight, when gaining weight would take months for me.

I have regular eating habits. My friends would always be surprised by the way I eat. They would joke around and tell me that they would never invite me to go to an eat-all-you-can restaurant. Now that it's July, it's nutrition month and everyone is reminded of a healthy lifestyle. Of course, that includes eating vegetables which is something I don't do.

I'm 19 now and I still have the same body as before. But I just want to say that I may be skinny, but I am not sickly. I actually have never been hospitalized. The only reason that I get medical checkups is because of my tonsillitis. That or if it is a requirement for an application process.

I do skip meals. But it's not because I have an eating disorder. f I skip a meal, it doesn't actually mean that I don't want to gain weight. It is because I still feel full from the last meal I had or simply because I'm not hungry at all. But I do eat fruits. I can also still walk, run, jump, and dance. I am physically active. And I think my brain is working well enough.

At times, I get worried about how it's hard for my body to gain weight. I would get paranoid and think that I might be really sick or something. My sister used to be skinnier than I am. But after some years, her figure changed and she gained weight. And I was left to be the skinnier one.

At times, I get worried about how it's hard for my body to gain weight. I would get paranoid and think that I might be really sick or something. 

But I just want to tell everyone that I may be skinny, but I am not unhealthy. I just feel bad sometimes that people look at me as a weakling because I am thin. I honestly would love to gain some weight. I will do my best to do that and try changing my eating habits.

For those who are in the same situation, let's all do our best to live in the most healthy way we can.
