Prattle: Who do we have today?? OURSELVES! Just as we are, beautiful, curvy and sometimes saggy! Nature does take it's course after a while...
Scuttlebutt: You mean gravity? But how would I know... I'm still 25... and have a body like.... well... um... Kate Moss (not!)!
Prattle: *nods* yes, you will know what i'm talking about in about 10 years.... bwahaha! Kate Moss? Eww..she looks like she can be broken.. Really? The first person you could come up with is Kate Moss?
Scuttlebutt: I had to think fast!! Sheeesh!! Well ok... I'm not thin... I have my curves as well. But I love them (at least now that I sent some of them away... *grins*) and also I know a few men who really appreciate them as well! What is Kate Moss compared to me? Nothing! If she'd stand behind me, no one would be even able to see her! LOL
via Facebook post:
A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman. The caption was "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?"
The story goes, a woman (of clothing size unknown) answered the following way:
"Dear people, whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, seals, curious humans), they are sexually active and raise their children with great tenderness.
They entertain like crazy with dolphins and eat lots of prawns. They swim all day and travel to fantastic places like Patagonia, the Barents Sea or the coral reefs of Polynesia.
They sing incredibly well and sometimes even are on cds. They are impressive and dearly loved animals, which everyone defend and admires.
Mermaids do not exist.
But if they existed, they would line up to see a psychologist because of a problem of split personality: woman or fish?
They would have no sex life and could not bear children.
Yes, they would be lovely, but lonely and sad.
And, who wants a girl that smells like fish by his side?
Without a doubt, I'd rather be a whale.
At a time when the media tells us that only thin is beautiful, I prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and drink and have fun with my friends.
We women, we gain weight because we accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn't enough space in our heads, and it spreads all over our bodies.
We are not fat, we are greatly cultivated.
Every time I see my curves in the mirror, I tell myself: "How amazing am I ?! "
There has also been posts going around forever that are about the body of a woman once she has a child:
I've carried a child within my body. Slept with them on my chest. I've kissed little toes & wiped away tears. I've been vomited on, peed on, and even pooped on I've spent many sleepless nights cradling my child but I wouldn't have it any other way. My body isn't magazine perfect, but when I look n the mirror I see a MOM and there is no greater honor, love, or blessing!!
Prattle: When I was pregnant, my husband told me that my body never looked more beautiful to him!
Scuttlebutt: Thats really sweet of him... awww...
Prattle: We want to also say that we are not advocating being unhealthy, we are just saying that not all women come in one size... Marilyn Monroe was a size 16 at her most popular.
Scuttlebutt: You know... having a few more pounds, doesn't mean you are unhealthy. There are many conditions that come with being thin... or trying to stay thin...
Prattle: Not at all!! But some people (myself included) have a problem finding the middle ground.. Both are equaly as dangerous.
Scuttlebutt: Scuttlebutt: What we need to do is eat with a conscience! Exercise, live our life! Nobody is perfect! And that's what makes us all perfect!!!
