Like most women I’ve been obsessed with weight since I was 5 years old. I was never thin enough not even when I was a size 6. As I have grown older (and wider) I have tried to be more accepting of my body size, reassuring myself that I am indeed still beautiful at a size US14/UK16. Size UK16 is after all the size for average every day women in the US and in the UK (see link below).
I guess thats why celebrities and the super rich alpha males only date and marry waifs and mannequins because , well, they are not ‘average guys’ and they don’t want average women, do they? Average doesn’t stand out which I guess is why the women that are still size 6 and even size 0 will continue to attract and get all the male attention including your average Joe of a husbands attention even as he reassures you he loves you just the way you are. Anyway.
But! Before you go for that second helping of cheese cake, they also saying size 16 is NOT healthy! Don’t over do it. Get regular exercise, eat healthy and according to the experts stay in a US12/UK14 dress size. So we got one dress size to drop.
I’m loving all those full bodied curves regardless. They look like wimmin! I look like a woman! I feel like a woman too! I’ve often wondered if my earlier desire to look like Twiggy had something to do with my fear of being a woman? And the anxiety created by social expectation of a woman.
Meanwhile, I can’t wait to get into that bikini I ordered online that’s arriving today!
