    ROFL!  That is the funniest, most honest thing I have read all day!!!!!

    OMG - ROARING here!!!!!

  • April 29, 2008

    You know, I think that I figured out last night a couple of things, and the FUCK YOU body thing was one of them.

    The other of course was that I am not the only woman in the world who thinks that she is a horrible mother, and can’t parent worth a damn. There are actually like a LOT of us.

    So I don’t feel so neurotic, and you shouldn’t either.

    And JC Penny can SCREW off with their skinny models. I mean none of them ACTUALLY WORK there now, do they?

    I’ve gotten past the catalog images.  I just want to look like you Leslie. smile

    And yeah, I did the letter to my body thing a while back.  I haven’t kept the promises I made either.  One of these days I’m going to get on track and stay there.

    Know what? I was at Kohl’s today trying on body shaper / suck-it-in things, so I can wear a pair of modern pants without bulges and panty-lines showing. Anyway, I noticed that there were a lot a lot a lot of these things in the intimates department. Racks and racks of them. Apparently they sell. Cuz who the hell looks like those catalog people?

    I DID post about my body.

    It’s a daily struggle, yo.

    I feel the same way whenever I go into Victoria’s secret or any other store to buy bras.

  • April 30, 2008

    And THIS is why I don’t keep catalogs or girly mags around the house. It only serves to make me FEEL bad and I’m oh, so tired of that.

    Skinny is overrated and all I ever want to do is hand them a cheeseburger.

    Here, honey. Chew it and swallow it for once.

    Every 6 seconds?  More like every 3.
    This issue is so huge (poor choice of words, I know).  Why isn’t it just okay to be who we are?  Because even WE don’t believe that line of bullshit!  It doesn’t matter how much we want to believe we are more than the sum of our physical parts, we get bombarded every day that we are delusional in the eyes of America. 

    It pains me that I have to raise a daughter in this atmosphere and find a way to REALLY make her understand how much it means to be compassionate, wise, gentle, funny, talented, determined, independent, and, yes, soft (in the heart).

    HATE IT.  Wish I had a way to change it for all women.

    Ok, confession time….I ordered a swim suit from…guess where…yup JCPenney this am.  I got it in “Darla” size - it’s a 2 piece (that’s more like a skort and a tank LOL). 

    I’ll be posting about it on Friday.  So for today, JcPenney can stay….at my house anyway. haha

  • April 30, 2008

    I think my letter to my body would be very similar to yours… i hate looking at catalogs, and the internet for that matter… ugh..

    Loved your post!

  • April 30, 2008

    How have I gotten through life until now without that 17-sex-weight-loss connection in my arsenal? 

    Seriously smart stuff here, lady.  Love it!

  • April 30, 2008

    So glad I am not in this boat alone. I struggle with the new body I have. Your letter made me laugh, then cry and then laugh again. I think from now on I am just going to tell my belly to ‘FUCK off!’ Ahhhhh, I feel better already smile

  • May 1, 2008

    This hit home for me. I can’t even tell you. We don’t have JC Penny in Canada, but we have magazines, and billboards, and TV and movies, and stores that sell ridiculously small clothes….

    Can I just say,......I hate getting older. ARG

    I’m totally giving my body the Bird!

    ” Dear Body,

    Fuck you.

    The end.”
      I swear I thought this same thing the other day when reading the Letters to my Body.  Except I added a , “PS. GO EAT SHIT!”.

  • May 3, 2008

    You know what you should do?  Print out two photos, one of an air-brushed version of your favorite star and one of the real them.  Tape them next to each other and immediately feel better about yourself.  Eating some chocolate can help increase this feeling of smug satisfaction.  I recommend dark organic with lavender and blueberries.  Oh yeah.
