Every year thousands of women come up with a common theme. It unites young women, old women, pretty women, distinctive women, full female women and thin women into one big sisterhood: the bikini figure. Women’s magazines and the internet are full of “bikini figures” right now. And we (almost) all participate.
I feel no different. Every spring I think about the fact that I still have three, two – oh, only one month left – to work out the perfect bikini figure and frolic on the beach with it. Pay a little more attention to your diet, do a little more sport, and it must be feasible! The fact that the swimsuit usually wins the race and the bikini is only used on the terrace at home, I probably share this experience with many women.

In the end, it’s not about whether I like others. But on the contrary! I have the classic hourglass figure with a waist and hips and it stays that way even after I lose ten pounds. No, my point is that I don’t like me if my figure leans too much towards Rococo.
I have a personal feel-good weight or feel good. And sometimes I come to a point where I look in the mirror in the morning and think “somehow I look like one of those buxom maids in a coat-and-epee ham”. But that’s not how I see myself. You can’t look like Veronika Ferres in her early years as an actress if you feel more like a mix of Sandra Bullock and Robin Wright. So I can’t do that. Or rather: I don’t want that. So something has to be done.
My personal keywords are: Fitness and Nutrition. “Oh” and “Ah” I hear you now say, “That’s something completely new!” Of course it isn’t, but this combination works best for me. I don’t want to start an extreme diet. On the one hand, this is too one-sided for me and not suitable as a family nutrition concept. BUT: I have a lot of nutritional guides on the bookshelf (just having such guides is really calming), various sports equipment in the house and fitness videos. And I have YOU.
Yes, you have to go through it now! I will let you participate in my experience. You can then smile at it or imitate it, you decide for yourself. Before that, however, I will consciously “sin” again and eat cake. Black Forest cake. My mother bakes it for me once a year. Birthday. I’ll eat them tomorrow without a guilty conscience. At least two!
Everyone has their own feel-good weight. I know many wonderful, very attractive people who the vernacular would refer to as fat. I don’t want to encourage or discriminate anyone to lose weight here. I’m only talking about my own body awareness and how I deal with it. And rest assured: I like people of all sizes, because in the end it is the person that counts, not his appearance.
