Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! Meghan Trainor’s song All About That Bass plays often on the radio. I admit it, it has a rather catchy melody. But, I have a problem with the lyrics. Not that the words are bad. Okay, there are few inappropriate ones like every other song. It’s the message it sends.
The average size was once a size 12 and today we see the average trend pushing a size 16.
I’m certainly not a size two (anymore) or a silicone Barbie and I think every woman needs to feel comfortable in her own skin, but to imply it’s okay to carry a heavy backside bothers me. We all know, if you have extra weight there, then it will be other places, too. I think of long-term problems developing for these lovely women. I don’t know, if this is the artist’s intent or not, but do you get the same sense about this song, too?
Anyhow, it got me thinking, so I want to pose a fun question to you and hope that you’ll feel at perfect ease in participating in this morning’s survey.
I think there is a lot of hype with the whole image thing. Real women are not stick figures and have shape, some a little more than others. We are all not genetically made the same. It would be a dull world, if we all looked alike. Don’t you think?
The point of this isn’t to insult you, but to make you think. About what, you say. A big bottom many times means you’re carrying extra baggage other places. It’s essential to stay at a good weight for your age and height throughout your life. I know first hand this is not always an easy job. However, I love myself and I hope you love yourself enough to make wise choices for a glowing, healthier you inside and out! Let’s face it, calories have a way of piling up before we know what to do, so I can shake it, shake it like I’m suppose to do because I want every inch of
you me is to be perfect from the bottom to the top.
Okay, that’s my cue…it’s time to hit the elliptical for the day! Have a terrific Thursday and please feel free to join me tomorrow for Flashback Friday!
