I am sure that many must be wondering why my blog is titled "Models & Mortals", some may be able to relate to the reasons why though...
Some may know that I was a long term sufferer of Hyperthyroidism and have just recently gone through the Radioactive Iodine treatment (RAI). Well, yesterday, I went to see my doctor for follow up and she told me that I may no longer be in the Hyper category but because I gained a bit of the weight that I lost, I may be in the Hypo category... Gosh!!! Gain weight??? Yes, that bothers me more than being re-categorised as Hypo-thyroid sufferer... Now, call me crazy but when my thyroid was very high, I was losing weight effortlessly - I think of it as a blessing in disguise **smile shamefully**
Now, my whole day was sort of ruined by the thought of gaining weight and how can I avoid that. And my mind 'travelled' to the thought of whether overweight females can actually look attractive or not. This led to an episode of one of my favourite shows, "Sex & The City", where the girls were talking about Modelizer (ie: Men who date only models). Even someone as sexy as Samantha was not considered as a model?!!! Anyway, I am sure that each of us have our own preferences abt the people we date / engaged to / married to, and I couldn't help but wonder if physical body is one of the many criteria / preferences. There are times when we would go through pain and suffering in order to maintain our beauty, or the lack of it, and when will we be satisfied.
What I love most abt the whole episode was when Mr. Big talked to Carrie abt the Modelizer topic and he said, "A man just wants to be with the one that makes him laugh". Hmmm, like Carrie, I was also thinking whether beauty is fleeting and whether something genuine is forever. Now, the title of this episode was "Models & Mortals".
So to those out there who can relate to me and my thoughts of MODELS or MORTALS, we just hope that our friends and our better halfs are looking at us for something more genuine than just pure beauty... But, deep down in our hearts, we may not always be satisfied of ourselves, regardless of what our better halfs say (well, at least, that's what I feel). Now, time to hit the gym!!! I'm a mortal afterall **wink**
