As a non-skinny person, I'm kinda tired of seeing clothes on size 2 people that are then supposed to look well on me. And I get that the majority of people don't want to see a big fat girl modeling clothes, honestly I'm not sure I do, either. It's not what we've ever known or been taught to be attractive. We want to see attractive, realistic or not.
This is a picture of a runway model whose BMI meets the criteria for anorexic. The other is a model (plus-size) who is a size 12.
Look at the arms. Look at the hips. Look at the thighs.
I could Zumba from now until Christmas without stopping and never look like that chick on the left and I'm kinda tired of images insinuating that I should.
Plus, I've carried 3 kids, nursed 3 kids, and carried 3 kids in my arms from Feb. 2005 until present day. If I didn't have my suit of armor (as I lovingly call it) I wouldn't be the strong, cozy mom I am for my kids. I wouldn't trade that for anything.
I'll be back to blog again on Monday. Right now I'm off. To eat a sandwich.
Happy Friday, friends.
