"FAT" according to whom?

I have been thinking... which can be lethal in a bad mood...
I have been taking pics of my face...of my body.
I am Trying to improve them.
To my satisfaction.
I have to tell you people...I am glad I have a strong mind.
Because reading some of the comments about stars and their supposedly 'fat' bodies..
I can see why young girls become anorexic.
It's disgusting.
I was catching whiffs of how 'fat' Christina aguilera had gotten...
so I looked it up.
I was expecting a 50 pound gain by the way they kept going on and on...
Except she was not a size 16 or 20....
This is her.... 'fat'.

I think they mean P.H.A.T.  (pretty, hot, and thick.)
After that little discovery I ran across This!

Do any of those women look fat to you?
Me either.
I weighed in today at 157.
That is a one pound loss.
 And I am proud of it!
I am still trying to lose weight...
to get to a healthy weight.
Not to become a stick figure or a walking skeleton.
And for comparison...
Demi moore last night.

When your head is bigger than your pelvis, it's time for a burger.
What lessons are we teaching our boys and girls?
Guys are all over the place talking about how fat Christina Aguilera is...
So are a lot of girls.
Heck, even kelly osbourne called her fat.
She is tops an 8....probably less than that.
Just looking at her, she is still a healthy weight.
It's ridiculous.
We need to stop buying into the culture of anorexia.
And we need to embrace being healthy.
Women need to stop lynching each other in the press.
That would be a good start.
That's all,
Chris out.

Yup, disgusted by the 'bobble-head' look. Way grosser than any hot curvy chick could ever be.

I was just thinking about this this morning as I ran while watching Biggest Loser. For years my husband has complained about the Hollywood Bobbleheads and told me if I ever got like that he wouldn't like it one bit (no danger of that so far - ha!). Christina in real life is probably more like an average woman. Demi looks anorexic. It's not becoming.

I would love to look like Christina. She's beautiful!

Keep up the great work and stay focused!

I'm right there with you on this! Recently I was looking for a picture of a fat lady and I googled it - the women were all normal! I was appalled, to say the least.

oh man i completely agree. it's like jessica simpson, she is gorgeous and everyone calls her fat now b/c she is no longer a size -0. it's ridiculous. I do believe, however, the deal with christina isn't that she is so FAT now, it's just that she is curvy and hot, but dresses trashy which can make her look bigger. A pet peeve of mine, know your body, love it, own it, and work what you have, but squeezing a size 8 in a size 0 is never flattering.

I loved this blog!!!

Sing it Chris... always the voice of reason, yours is.

Wish we could go back to the days of Marily Monroe and Jane Russell. Curvaciously gorgeous women who probably wore a size 10/11.

More people need to speak out on this. I saw a politicians wife in California on the morning news the other night talking about the sexualization of women and how it's getting worse. Men see sexualized pictures of women and think that is how women "should" look like. We are ruining our perception of reality and she is appealing to the media to stop distorting the images. I don't think that is going to happen anytime soon until Madison Avenue stops putting anorexic models on covers of magazines.

I think Demi is depressed over her marriage and her weight loss is a result of that. She usually looks pretty good and healthy.
