felt like doing a backflip (I broke my nose the first and last time I did it) when I received the news that Youngster slammed it big at the 38th Catholic Mass Media Awards (CMMA). The deeply coveted glass trophy had an inscription “Best Youth Magazine.” Oh man, aren’t those words music to the ears? The announcement sent me reeling with joy. And for a minute my breathing grew heavy in a good way as compliments flooded my inbox and Facebook page.

I press the clutch pedal down to the floor, turn on the ignition switch, shift the knob to first gear, and then slightly release the clutch up to its biting point.

Whoa! I woke up one morning and my six-pack washboard abs were gone!

Alright, maybe I overplayed that. For one, I never had sculpted abs, and two, weight gain does not happen overnight.

Still and all, the truth remains that after a seemingly endless pigging out during the long holidays, my denims hardly fit me anymore, stooping down to tie my shoelaces is a bit arduous, and climbing the stairs to my room requires some strenuous effort. “Maybe, the feeling of being HEALTHY (read: heavy) is all in my mind,” I try to console myself. But the weighing scale does not lie; I have, beyond any doubt, gained some pounds.
