Why I hate the words fat and ugly....

Happy New Year ladies! It has been a while since I have posted, as I have actually been busy. You know January in the Jazzerworld is like December at the mall...JUST CRAZY. All those people with New Year's resolutions you know. BUT, I am not complaining, bring those new people in the doors! Anyway, I have been thinking about the words fat and ugly. And I have decided to remove them from vocabulary...why? Because they are just over-used, uncreative, just simply BAD words.

Let's start with fat! How many times have you heard men make jokes about fat women? You see the "classy" bumper stickers, No Fat Chicks. I mean come on, I think it is hilarious that usually the guy driving the truck with that bumper sticker is usually overweight himself. How many times you do tell your girlfriends that you have a fat gut or butt? Well, let's get rid of that right now. The next time you say something like that about your body, you are required to stand up and say three nice things about yourself. I am not kidding. Ladies seriously, stop putting yourselves and others down. Stop calling yourself and others fat. Men say it enough for us already. Here is what I like to say...maybe he/she could use a little Jazzercise. Or perhaps a Weight Watchers meeting would be good for him/her. It just sounds a little less of an accusation and more of an observation. And simply less judgmental, because in my estimation, it is not our place to judge others.

And then there is UGLY. I just simply hate this word (and I really don't like the word hate either, but it is appropriate here). Ugly is just an ugly word. And honestly, I don't think there are any people in the world who are in ugly in terms of their physical looks. Every person out there has someone that believes they are beautiful. So, let's say that there are only people whose actions are ugly. There are some people that might unfortunate looking or maybe only marginally cute (feel free to use those), but not ugly. Again ladies seriously, don't refer to yourself as ugly or my hair looks ugly, because it is simply not true. You might be having a bad hair day or you may not look your best today, but you are not ugly. And once again, if you find yourself saying anything that sounds like this, you are required to say three nice things about yourself, OUT LOUD to anyone standing around you. Not kidding.

So New Year's resolution suggestion for all...ladies and gentlemen seriously! Drop the words fat and ugly from your vocabulary. Why? Because it makes us classier! And while you are at it, perhaps removing some of that judgement from your world would be good too!

Have a wonderful weekend, we have a benefit tonight to raise money for St. Baldricks at one of my Jazzercise centers. Great cause, fun class. Cheers and CIAO BELLAS!
