Have you ever wondered what you’d do if you had something about you changed? For example, if you had your nose fixed, would you try out as a supermodel? If you had more muscles, would you try to wrestle? If you were taller, would you go for the NBA?
Well, my big problem – pardon the pun – is a fixable one: Lose the weight. I’ve been contemplating what things I’d do if I could change that aspect, and came up with a list.
5. Hit on Females more
Being obese puts a clamp around your confidence – worsened by the reactions of other people. I try not to hit on females specifically because I can’t handle rejection, so being skinny might be the boost I need.
4. Enter a Triathlon
Most people I know who succeed in losing weight end up only wanting to do a marathon. I’ve never been a huge fan of running, but I’ve always loved biking and swimming. The running would just be a bonus because I’d finally be able to do it. 😀
3. Pick a Fight
I’ve always been a peaceful person who avoids fights like the plague. While this wouldn’t change, it’d be nice to know – and have others know – that I could stand my ground if I needed to.
2. Try for some Lead Roles
I’ve always wanted to be someone out in front, but, because of the weight, I’ve never had the confidence to do it.
And the one thing I’d do if I were skinny?
1. Go Skinny-Dipping with a Female!
Confidence, confidence, confidence – isn’t that what it all boils down to?
