Blog Action Day 2011 - #BAD11 #Food
This is my first year of participating in Blog Action Day. This year’s theme is food. I wanted to join & write a post about it, because I’ve been struggling with food & eating since I was 10 years old. (Now I’m 17) I always was a skinny girl. Maybe too skinny. Most of the people always said: “OMG why are you so skinny?” or “OMG why don’t you eat more?” or “OMG are you anorexic?!” NO! I’m not. And this was the worst thing, what people said to me. They thought just becuase I was skinny, I had eating disorders..etc. But if you have looked at my mom, you would have seen that thinnes is in my genes! Everytime my friends or my classmates were talking about weights, I always went away, because I was ashamed of myself, my weight. I ate a lot. Not every day, but I ate well. Once when I was out with my friend, she even said: “Omg you ate ALL of it yet you’re skinny!” I hate weating t-shirts, beacuse then people could see my skinny arms. I hated PE (well I still hate it, but for a different reason), because I had to wear shorts, so people could see my thiny legs. I hated summer, I hated wearing bikinis. But now I accepted myself. This is who I am. I’ll never be a puffy girl. Maybe I’m too skinny, but now I’m trying to eat healthily and regulalry. And if people don’t like how I look like, then I’m sorry.
Another importand thing the starvation in Africa. It hurts to see people & mostly KIDS starving & how skinny they are. In developed countires, moms pack sandwiches & fruit for their kids, who go to school. Some of the kids buy a more delicous sandwich at their school canteen & they just throw their home-made sandwich. Please if you don’t like what your mom packs for you, then just ask her to stop it. Because millions of kids starving in Africa and you’re lucky enough not to know how bad it is, but please don’t waste the food! You make a sandwich at home for yourself. A sandwich what you love and you want to eat and then you can safe your pucket money. And one day in year or a month you can donate your pucket money for UNICEF or some other organisation. For you it’s just one day without junk food or whatever you would have wanted to buy, but for a kid in Africa it’s the survival. Please think about it!
Organisations, where you can donate:
Be the change you want to see in the world!
