A few hours ago, a friend of mine called me concerning something extremely important. At first I thought she was in some kind of trouble judging from the tone of her voice. However, when she finally told me what was bothering her, I’m sorry but I had to suppress a giggle.
Weight. Her problem was with her weight! Now I know I am not a stick figure myself, but seriously, weight should be the least of all our problems. While I do understand that there is a bit of urgency regarding my friend’s dilemma because she was just chosen to be a Maid of Honor at another friend’s wedding, I had to reprimand her softly that she really did not have to lose a LOT of weight.
Okay, sure, maybe if she wanted to shed off a few pounds, which would be fine. She could easily find somebody selling weight loss pills that work and have that problem fixed in a jiffy. But the idea that slimmer is better does not really sit well with me. Curvy is nice. But that’s just me.
