Tyra Banks, Jennifer Hudson, and Ugly Betty-The new look of Beauty…

Can it really be happening? Can women be considered beautiful at size 12? Even supermodel Tyra Banks is tired of being anorexic. Two models died, and FINALLY, the fashion industry has a weight limit so that their runway gals don’t die of emaciation. Is there hope? Can we really eat carbs again? My husband and I are on a diet. I hate diets. First of all, because you eat this disgusting tasting food that your mother made you eat when she told you you had to finish it before dessert. Only this time you have to finish it and there is no tasty dessert afterwards. Rice cakes, for example. You might as well eat packing material. They put flavors on them like caramel and parmesan cheese, but its still packing material. Then there are those Kashi cereals. My pillow stuffing tastes better. And you can’t even cover them up with sugar or fruit.

Celery is completely worthless. My garden hose has more flavor. And forget the camouflage ingredients like pimento cheese and peanut butter. Those aren’t on the list. Then there are those somewhat tastier foods that still leave you hungry.

Like Chinese food. Kung Pao Chicken, Beef with Broccoli, Black Beans and Tofu. You’re hungry thirty minutes after you finish your plate. Even the fortune cookie doesn’t make the feeling last. And finally, contraband that really does taste good. Cotton candy-you know-the kind you get at the Pima County Fair. Fluffy, pink and delicious. Have you ever seen the guy who whips it up in a frenzy? Before he blows it around, its just a spoonful of sugar. Sometimes I wish the Lord had given us a nuclear power system that would keep us going. Then we wouldn’t have to deal with the whole hunger thing. And Ronald McDonald would go out of business. Food doesn’t last. We went on a mission trip to the Middle East and when we returned all our bananas were black. Don’t expect them to taste yellow and fresh.

We can lose the fresh taste of life. Solomon did. He tasted of life and nothing satisfied. That is why he wrote Ecclesiastes. He said life at the start had great taste. He talks about trying money, women, and philosophy. But nothing satisfied. He called it “meaningless” or “mist” that fades away. Then he penned these words at the end of his book. “Remember your Creator in the days of your youth…here is the conclusion of the matter-Fear God and keep His commandments.” Ecclesiastes 12:1 and 13. trying the stuff of this world is mist. It may appear to have great taste…But it is less filling.

I’m going to seek God first. As for the diet, I finally decided to buy me a muzzle.

    I hear you. And this is what I ask: Why does beauty have to have a size at all? Why??
    Some people are naturally thin, others are naturall curvy. That makes neither one of them better nor more attractive. A naturally thin person would look best thin, and the same goes for a naturally curvy one. Being one or the other IS NOT BAD and I have no idea why it’s seen as bad.

    What IS bad looking and, even more important, bad health wise is if you overdo eating or dieting. Then you end up either fat/obese or anorexic…that is a problem, because your chance of serious sickness is much bigger in both cases. But, unless you’re in those cases, why should weight be a problem??

    Why is it bad when a woman eats just enough and looks as she’s naturally supposed to?? Why can’t a woman just be herself, today? It’s sick…it seems like girls are never good enough. There’s always something wrong. But, sadly, I just can’t see that changing anytime soon, cause when you look back in history it’s always either “It’s good to be thin” or “It’s good to be curvy”…never both.

    I don’t think over or under the healthy weight should be considered beautiful. Why? Cause NEITHER is a healthy look, hence the OVER and UNDER before the weight. 😉

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on
    Opera. Excellent Blog!
