you are what you say you are

(a superstar...)

Fewer people *think* they're overweight these days, and people are accepting their bodies. Yay, right?

CNN: As nation gains, 'overweight' is relative

Or are we just becoming complacent?

Apparently women with normal BMIs are less likely to say they think they're overweight than they used to. This is good. This means happy healthier people, who know they're okay, and won't obsess about it.

But then again, apparently brands are downscaling sizes, so that you might think you're awesome and in a size 8, but it's only a matter of labeling and you're really wearing a size 12. And that quick fix illusion may not be so much a good thing at all. Also it might be what's making it difficult to buy jeans online these days.

And getting back to BMI...

I'd add in comment but I am hungover and this was difficult enough. Good day.

I'll be back

I think this blog is a summer thing. I've been getting the urge to write lengthy posts not suitable for my tumblelog. Also would like to post pictures that facebook and tumblr don't need. See y'all soon. YAY!
