What’s with the obsession about weight ?

A distressing or impairing preoccupation with an imagined or slight defect in one's appearance is on a rise and I wonder who’s benefiting from this, the particular individual’s health or the Cosmetic industry .Let’s see, an individual is so preoccupied with his image that apart from the work stress, he has an added stress amount leading to anxiety .Whereas the Cosmetic industry is telling us that a perfect 10 figure is the way to go to improve our self confidence. I agree that one has to be healthy after all health is wealth but just because we have wealth, we can’t go around buying health. The problem nowadays is that the obsession is getting younger and younger, earlier a woman in her 50’s used to get concerned about her skin and health but now even a 10 year old is concerned about her tummy being rounded and thinks she is old enough to loose the chubby kid image and have a well toned body. Personally I think as long as an individual is healthy not just thinks he is healthy, but is healthy you are on the right part, I mean how hard is it to exercise each day and have a balanced diet, Right!! WHAT DO U THINK ISN’T IT THAT SIMPLE?
