We’ve all heard a bazillion jokes about people who are overweight or underweight. I wonder if that’s because of our own hang ups about it?
Have you heard about the lady in the States who wants to weigh 1,000 pounds? She’s disapointed in herself because she only weighs a little more than 600 pounds. She has two children and says her husband loves her figure .. he’s a belly man. OK, so we all understand how the media has affected our children, mostly our daughters and their self image. The numbers around eating disorders are outrageous and the kids are getting younger and younger. I wonder if this woman is rebelling somehow. Is she “going to show us” a thing or two? And speaking of kids; what message is she sending to her children? This woman has mobility issues and health problems, as I’m sure you can imagine. I am the first to stand against the “too skinny” runway model look or advertising that targets our kids. Shouldn’t the message be about getting and staying healthy?
Don’t forget to pick up your daffodils in support of the Cancer Society. Scott and I are looking forward to hosting the Relay For Life fundraiser this year and we’re hoping to see you there!
See ya in the morning,
