60! Sixty. S-I-X-T-Y! Of course I went for the second opinion, what would you do in my place? And of course I had to accept the merciless outcome: sixty. It's been long since I was confronted with this number. Fifteen years passed and now it suddenly showed its face again. It happened so quickly. Just a month ago (or maybe even less) my scales were showing 56. I still fit in my Diesel and Levi's size 27, but it's kind of hard.

"I have to tell you something. Do you know how much I weigh now? Sixty kg!"
"Is it much or little?"
"I hear you. I actually like it. Your hips are so beautifully round."
"!!! I have to get rid of at least four kg."
"You have a very beautiful body."
"I have to dance more and have more sex."
"I will gladly help you with both! I do love your body the way it is now, though."

No, I am not going on a diet. I am going to act according to common sense. If I need to eat more in order to gain weight, then I probably have to eat less in order to lose some of it. I've done it before (fifteen years ago), I know it works. But still this number makes me feel uncomfortable.


  1. Sjonge Sasja, jij bent toch wel de laatste van wie ik had gedacht zich zorgen te (hoeven) maken om haar gewicht...

  2. What is your ideal weight Sacha according to your BMI?

    If you really want to lose weight, you could try drinking a green smoothie before your main meal, it worked for me, although it was not even my original purpose :-)


  3. @Sandra Ik maak me voortdurend zorgen om mijn gewicht, maar normaal andersom - om ondergewicht ;)

    @Sueli My ideal weight is somwhere between 55kg and 56kg
    I remember your smoothie, I should indeed try it.

  4. if you are uncomfortable with your present weight, just cut down your carbohydrate consumption; it's easy and painless - and it is also supported by solid science, see http://www.randomhouse.com/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=9781400040780
