A lot of people are now talking about Jessica Simpson. She is now a size 12, she’s over weight, she is getting fat. There are rumors that they are even saying that some fashion designers won’t be sending her free things anymore, because they don’t want her wearing their clothes looking like this. I can’t believe this. Well yes I can! The glamor, the fame, Society, they have been telling us for years that looking “thin” is what’s in and if your not, you aren’t good enough, pretty enough etc, etc….. this is why we have 10 year olds worrying about how they look. This is why we have women who are bulimic, or anorexic, and don’t be fooled some men feel this way too.
I totally agree with what Ashley Simpson had said last week: ‘Women come in different shapes, sizes and forms. Just because you are a celebrity, there shouldn’t be a different standard.
‘How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure?’
That question stands out to me so much. Seriously, think about it. So right now according to “standards” I’m over weight, and I have a little tiny pudg. OMG, am I obese? NO! Yes I can exercise a little more, eat a little healthier, but I look good right.
Okay so I have to admit, it’s not the media who’s gotten to me, it’s society. All these women go out there and get all these plastic surgeries to look so good, have the best bodies, and well I’m just a regular girl. How can I compete right? I don’t believe in diets though haha, I think we only live once, and we should enjoy the pleasures of food. One pleasure I love oh so very much! You have to balance though. During the week I try my best to eat a healthy breakfast and lunch and small snacks in between. Dinner I try my best to eat healthy too, sometimes I don’t always cook, so I can’t control the menu, but I try not to eat any fried food. i try to exercise 3 times a week. And once in a while when I’m in the mood, I have that chocolate chip cookie. My bowl of pasta. I can’t help it I LOVE FOOD, especially Pasta! YUMMMMMM
Okay back to the subject. I am sure many women out there feel like me, but I understand that sometimes you feel almost as if you are the only one in the world out there that feels this way. How can someone understand what I’m going through? I’ve been there before. Feeling as if you aren’t pretty enough, good enough. You have to sit back, look in the mirror and tell yourself, no matter how funny it may sound. No ones’ looking, it’s just you in the mirror, and repeat: “I AM BEAUTIFUL”, “I AM BEAUTIFUL”. Don’t stop until you truly start believing it. Everyone is beautiful. Sure I don’t look like that super model in Victoria Secret. Do I wish I looked like her. MMMMM Sometimes. Am I ever going to look like her? No. So why keep wishing. I am me. I am beautiful.
Look within yourself, and once you see who you truly are, you will love yourself, you’ll love everything about what makes you, YOU!
