a curvy girl story


Eve, 'Kenzie, and Danielle, I need your snailmail address! (unless you aren't comfortable with that, of course) And wandrlost, you ROCK for going through and taking all of my favorite polls. ;-)

A little story I commented to someone that I didn't want to forget (from when I was a cashier at Walmart):

I hate seeing perfectly healthy curvy women buying slim-fast and fashion magazines. One time a curvy girl came in my line, and she had one of the loveliest bodies I've ever seen, yet she was buying some diet pills. I couldn't help myself, I asked her, "You aren't trying to lose weight, are you?" She laughed a little self-consciously and said, "yes, always... why do you ask?" and I said, "because you look gorgeous the way you are! You certainly don't need to lose any weight." She shyly said thanks. Then the two guys she was with came over and I gave her the receipt and they left... and I was a little worried that she might think I was hitting on her, but DAMN I can't STAND the idea of her thinking she was anything less than beautiful. Afterward I was glad I did. I hope it made a difference to her.

P.S. like the new icon? That's a professional bellydancer's belly.

Women for the most part tend to be self conscious about weight and appearance.

If oyu ask me, most of the women in magazines look ill.
:P

very true. Because most of them are ill! It's scary, tragic, and infuriating how women sacrifice themselves for five years of supermodel-hood, and in those five years contribute to the deaths of millions of women's self-images and health.

I know.
The desire to be thin can lead to very dangerous behaviour. I know people who have gone to extremes to try to lose weight and, in honesty, it's pretty sad. I feel so much for these women.

No matter the fact that 6 out of 7 days I look in the mirror I see extra weight, I would rather have my health at the end of the day.
