Are we our own worst enemy?
It's that age old issue; women and weight.
Like so many others, I had a Bridget Jones-esque new year resolution list including:
Lose weight, lose weight, lose weight, oh and lose some weight.
(there is a problem with this plan: i love food and i'm incredibly lazy)
Girls, admit it. We've almost all done it - unfairly judged another girl on her appearance. Called her fat, when we know she's not. No wonder millions of girls are constantly on a diet under the pressure to 'get skinny' or 'look good naked'.
Most men I know really don't care about the size of a woman, and frankly any man lucky enough to have you naked in his bedroom really doesn't care about that cellulite.
Some of the most beautiful women I've ever seen are 'plus size' (including my stunning mother - neon pink hair and all).

Its that comparison that does it - we all do it don't we? Look at someone in the street, a fellow blogger, a celebrity and think:
"God I wish I had her body."
I'm going to learn to be happy with mine the way it is, after all, if I reeeeally wanted to lose weight I wouldn't be down the gym once a month then celebrating my fitness achievement with a massive Chinese takeaway.
Ladies, there are some awful men out there ready and willing to judge us so why, why do we insist on judging each other? What ever happened to girl power?
I'll sing some Spice Girls hits if it would help...
Can we erase the word 'fat' from the dictionary?*
Pass the chocolates. Writing this post has made me hungry again.
*I'm going to clarify this, can we erase the use of the word 'fat' in a negative context, please! This was brought to my attention by the really wonderful Launa from Wowsville!
