Hunger!?! by geertje

Hunger!?!

Hunger; is it a choice or an urge?

For the Me Every Week challenge.
I think it's crazy to starve yourself for a dress-size and I had a really great meal before I took this picture. But as it is a decision and a luxury for us to starve ourselves, some people have no choice at all.
I'm grateful for the wealth we live in and pray for those whose stomachs aren't filled at least once a day.

I'm so sorry about yesterdays picture. I was a bit taken away with my new phone, I'll move it to my secondary album and upload a lovely photo instead...
This is great!! I have self-discipline during the day but after about 5pm I'm useless - it is ridiculous that we can get so fat while other people have what's on your plate.

@judithg Totally agree. I'm glad you understood where I'm rambling about. I didn't want to offend anyone with an eating-disorder, just comment on the gap between rich and pour.

I'm with you on this .
hubby tends to naturally thin and I'm the opposite way inclined.

Great theme shot and the commentary is so true!

very cool shot Geertje - I keep missing the SP theme...and it looks like one I could have done...maybe i'll have time tomorrow! Funny, I have been on a diet and quite liking the feeling of actually being hungry...you are so right that in this part of the world we take a decision to be hungry whilst others are not so fortunate.

I have a theory, if there were no spices in the world , we would all be slim and trim.

really powerful shot

Great shot and commentary. I am great with not overeating until after 7 p.m. The kitchen should be off limits to me then. I have a friend who sometimes goes hungry because she is poor. It is difficult to know how much to help her and how much to help her help herself. Dealing with hunger is not an easy thing to deal with at a personal level, at the local level or at the worldwide level.

Great photo!!

Is it alright if I pick you for the winner? I think this is the best depiction of the theme, especially with so many women dealing with eating disorder/body image issues

@tbats22 Of course! Thank you, I feel honoured! I'll start the new theme today.

Verdelen is nooit mens beste punt geweest. ik hoop wel nog steeds dat het eens goed komt.

Fraai gestilleerd shot Greetje! Ik ben echt helemaal uitgekeken op de z/w met 1 kleur, maar voor deze maak ik oprecht een uitzondering. Het groen van de erwtjes komt ook mooi uit bij de duotone die je in de rest hebt toegevoegd.

@djepie Dank je wel! Ik houd er over het algemeen ook niet van, maar op de een of andere manier vroeg deze foto erom. En ik heb inderdaad z/w bewust een beetje groen gemaakt.
