CHINA - If your new year's resolution was to lose inches around your waist, try the A4 waist test, which started in China and is taking over the Internet.

Hold up a size A4 sheet of paper to your waist.  It's about the size of a regular 8.5" x 11" letter size sheet, but you've gotta hold it vertically.  If the paper covers your waist, they say you're paper thin.

Can you believe this craze is being called a fitness challenge?

The trend is getting lots of backlash on social media.  Many say trying to squeeze into this challenge is unrealistic, unhealthy, and does not define beauty.

Some even made their own paper waist challenges, using sticky notes to hide their waists, but standing from far away, of course.  Looks like perspective is everything.

Poor teddy bear won't ever stand a chance.  Don't "waste" your time on this stupid challenge.
