A friend and I had a conversation this weekend about celebrities and their lies.
We are tired of it. If I hear one more celebrity say they eat doughnuts and
chocolate all the time and hardly ever work out I'm going to march myself
straight to Beverly Hills and give these women a piece of my mind.
extremely unrealistic ideal size. If I see one more gaunt, anorexic woman
walk down the runway I will trip her. And then she will break in two because
there is nothing supporting that skeletal system.
Seeing clothing lines aimed at young girls only makes me more ill thinking about
how these young women are seeing these emaciated bodies modeling the clothing.
If I had a daighter, or even a son, I would be frightfully scared of what they think is
a "normal" body type. I can remember being in high school, not even weighing 100 lbs
and thinking how fat I looked compared to the models. If I could go back in time,
I would slap my 17 year-old self across the face for having that thought cross my mind.
So, this has kind of turned more into a rant than anything...But I couldn't help
but get this off of my chest. I just want young women today to see how beautiful
they are and to stop comparing themselves to these waif-like figures.
I also want celebrities to be real about what their eating.
Don't tell me you're eating cake and cookies and hardly ever hitting the gym.
Be real. Just admit you eat 500 calories a day and go to the gym twice a day.
That's all I'm asking.
If you've made it to the end of this post, thanks for putting up with me :)
