So, the daily spark blog posted this article the other day asking if people would be willing to give up a year of their life in return for the perfect body. 16% of women who were normal or underweight answered yes.
This is more than a bit upsetting. Someone made a really good point in the comments section, they said:
"Too bad people aren't willing to give up poor self esteem, a sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy amounts of unhealthy food for a "perfect" body. 'cuz then they'd get to KEEP that year, and likely earn more of 'em... Just sayin' " (I couldn't find the original poster of the quote so I couldn't give credit.)
There really isn't much more to say than that on the subject, it's so true. Some women would have given up graduate degrees, promotions and college degrees with honors for a perfect body. Some reason I doubt men would be willing to make these bargains. Although the pressure on them is getting worse too. This is one of those days when I just want to throw my hands up and say I give up, you win world! It's just such a disappointment.
Would you be willing to trade these things - or more - for your 'perfect body'?
