I read an article online today about a U.S. based company that created a line of t shirts for children and babies. That’s right, I said children and babies. This is sickening.
In 2009, Kate Moss famously said “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.”
I call bullshit on this one. Obviously, this woman has never eaten Rocky Road ice cream, prime rib, chocolate cake, turkey BLT sandwiches, lasagna, strawberry milk shakes, twice baked potatoes, deep dish pizza – I could go on and on. I can not count the things that taste better than skinny feels. That list would circle the globe a few times over.
Don’t get me wrong. I am not, in any way, shape or form, advocating obesity. That is an entirely different disease and it is just as serious – actually, more serious because it is more widespread – as anorexia and bulimia. I struggled with anorexia as a teen and since becoming an adult, I struggle with the opposite – keeping the weight off. It’s as though, once I really allowed myself to enjoy eating…I just couldn’t stop. I’m not obese, but I am technically about 30 pounds over my ideal weight and I am trying to get that weight off in a safe and healthy way (through a healthy diet and exercise). But honestly? I really love food. It tastes good. Enjoying my meals is more important to me than being “skinny.” I’d rather be a little thick and be able to have pancakes for breakfast. And spaghetti for dinner. Because really, what’s the point of living if you can only eat salad and grilled chicken 24/7?
What I am trying to say is that this woman is full of crap. SHE GETS PAID A LOT OF MONEY TO BE SKINNY. She’s a freaking supermodel. If she eats and gains weight, she loses work. Of course being skinny is more important to her than enjoying her dinner.
Also? Let’s just face facts here. She’s a known drug user. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to do the math.
Famous SuperModel + N0 Eating + Indeterminate Amount of Cocaine = SKINNY.
No thanks, Kate.
