I can’t even open a magazine anymore without getting severely annoyed. What annoys me so much, you ask?
The models. And the celebrities.
I am so sick of seeing stick thin (people so thin that you can see every bone in their chest, all their ribs, etc, you know what I mean) portrayed as “ideal”. Yes, it is unhealthy to be overweight, but it is also unhealthy to be that thin.
I think I am a very average woman, I wear a size 10 or 12, I walk or work out often, I eat healthy (with the exception of a few treats every now and then), and I think I have a pretty decent body, if I do say so myself.
So when I open a magazine that is supposedly advertising clothes to ME, well, I’d like to see women who looked a little more like me. I mean, I’d just like to see some people that look like they had more than a cigarette and a tic-tac for lunch.
