Does this make me look fat?

EEEK! Besides the question "do you want to meet my parents?", this is one of the scariest questions ever uttered from a woman's mouth to a man's ear. Obviously if the man has any sense, the answer would be, "OF COURSE NOT dear, you look fabulous!". However, based on my previous blog post, "you can't buy class" you know that sometimes, the outfit does IN FACT make someone look fat because they are not dressing for their body type.

So here is the better answer to the question, ladies seriously, DON'T ASK IT! Being a fitness professional and strong independent woman, I am SO saddened regularly by the utter lack of positive body image in females today. And YES, I blame the media and Hollywood for that one. Think back in the time of Mae West, Ava Gardner and Marilyn Monroe, these women were BOMBSHELLS and men had their posters up in their lockers. And guess what, these women were sizes 8-12! They were beautiful, normal sized women. And then what the heck happened? Plastic surgery, I guess...but now Hollywood considers a size 10 a PLUS sized model, and only women sizes ZERO to 2 are "considered" beautiful.

Once again, I will say this, these women are PAID to be a size two and they have an army of stylists, personal trainers and nutrionists to make them look good. Heck, I could be a size 2 if I had an army like that, but then again, I wouldn't look healthy at a size 2, becauase it doesn't fit my body type. Trust me, I was that size at my wedding and I look back at pictures of myself and really, I look unhealthy. Me personally? I think women like Queen Latifah, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Angela Bassett are more beautiful...I mean, really, a size ZERO...that isn't even a size!

So here it is ladies, if you are a size that you don't like or want to lose/gain weight, please, please don't boo-whoo about it all the time. It is annyoing and upsetting to all those around you. I hate it when women say these pants make me look fat, I am too fat, blah, blah (usually if someone says that to me, I take a page from my sister's book and ask said person to say three positive things about themselves). Genetics are bitch and sometimes you can't help some of the body parts that you have and the sooner you accept some of that the better. If there are parts of your body that you want to change and they can be changed, instead of complaining about it, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT...get your bootie to Jazzercise, for crying out loud.

Ladies seriously, a confident self assure woman with a little extra body fat is WAY sexier than a skinny woman who complains about how fat she is. Have some class, if you don't like your body, change it, embrace your faults and flaunt them...just make sure to wear a bra and underwear ;)

Have a fantastic weekend...if you are in Chicago, enjoy the weather, I am headed to the pool with the redhead. Cheers and CIAO BELLAS!!
