Hi everyone! (lol, I say that like there are thousands of people reading this!) hehe, anyways, lemme start from somewhere! I\’m sure from the name of this post everyone should kinda have an idea of what its about! well, if you don\’t I\’ll enlighten you!
So, today I was on instagram, and I saw this picture of a girl I know, and I looked at the picture and I was like OMG!! what happened to this girl?! she\’s lost so much weight! it was.. shocking to say the least, and just like that, bamm! I knew I just had to write something about it!
The other day, I was having a convo with my friend, and he was saying how this generation is so twisted! In the past, we always had issues of people not having enough food to eat, but now, what we have is people refusing to eat! like for real, you\’ll see a girl, eating once a day, and that once, is like one miserable salad, that doesn\’t even have anything in it, and she\’ll be like, omg I\’m soo stuffed that was soo much food! and you, who is having a burger and chips or something is like, what the heck is this one on about?! smh, girls ! wake up! being size zero isn\’t fun! because your\’e always constantly trying to keep it at zero! You cant even have chocolate!! lol
Well, in all honesty, I understand the struggle, because I still struggle, I hardly eat, I dunno why actually, food has just never been my fav thing in the world, but even at that, I don\’t starve myself to look good! When I get hungry, I will eat! I spoil myself once in a while too!
There was a time.. not too long ago, that being a size 8 was small.. but now, you\’re size 8 and people tell you you\’re not skinny enough! like WTH!? where did that come from? curves are a good thing! I pray to God for curves all the time! I don\’t think if I get married my husband would want to be hugging bones, even my boyfriend wouldn\’t want to cuddle bones, he\’d want some flesh.. and the same goes for every other guy! I know there are some people that are naturally thin! They can eat the whole menu everyday and remain thin, and those people I envy! But for the rest of us, who actually put on weight, I beg of you, don\’t starve yourself to look like those other ladies.. please!!… work out if need be, have a fit body, be healthy but please don\’t over do it and get to the point were you look like you are coming from a starving home! Because that\’s what it seems most people are striving for! and all i can say is that\’s sad! Very very sad! there is nothing wrong in wanting to be slim, fit, and pretty, but having some flesh is a good thing! A very good thing!
Before I end this, lemme just throw this out there.. make up, is meant to enhance your beauty, not make you look like somebody you are not! if you are a black beauty, embrace it, and stop using foundation 2 shades lighter than your face! Please you make it hard for people to recognize you! Imagine if your boyfriend saw you one day, and started a convo, and was like, hey, do I know you from somewhere? you look very much like my girlfriend! That sounds out of this world, but at the rate which things are going, very very soon.. that\’s gonna start happening!
So.. in closing I\’ll say this. Ladies, you are beautiful the way you are! You need to accept yourself, and love yourself. Being a stick doesn\’t make you pretty. Accept your body, change what you can, but don\’t kill yourself to be a size 4.. please! Its a plea!! It wont really affect me if you decide to be anorexic, but it will affect you. Being curvy or slender or skinny isn\’t what defines the real you. We are all real woman despite how we look! Its okay to be curvy and its also okay to be slender.. its however Not okay to look like you are starving when you aren\’t
So my fellow females, lets be healthy in our quest to be slim and lets also remember moderation.. starvation is not the key! Exercise, eat right, and you\’ll be fine 🙂
