I apologize in advance, although this blog post may be more of a rant lol but I will never 
understand why women are so critical of one another. One of my biggest pet peeves in the entire world is to listen to women put other women down for their appearance.

We live in a world where movie stars, with trainers, dietitians, chefs, makeup artists and stylists are at their beck and call, are the norm. As someone who works 40 hours a week at one job, 20+ hours a week blogging, and is currently planning a wedding, I struggle to find time to spend quality moments with my fiancé, or to take my dogs for walks...much less work out for hours a day, or spend time cooking the healthiest meals on Earth. Shit, if I am being completely honest, there are days I am so tired I can’t even muster the energy to wash my own hair – much less drag myself to the gym! Lately I’ve been trying to throw in a quick match of tennis here and there because inevitably Joe is going to crush me, and so it really isn’t that time consuming, but that is a whole other story!

Nothing bothers me more than for someone who does or does not know anything about my current situation, to criticize my appearance. Thankfully I knew going into blogging that by putting myself out there, I would need to grow a bit of a thick skin, but people’s comments are still rude, confusing and bothersome. I am consistently told I need to eat more, gain more weight, lost weight, do this, do that – matter of fact, I couldn’t count high enough to count the number of times people have told me “You need to eat a cheeseburger!”

Well guess what – I do eat cheeseburgers. I eat A LOT of them! I also eat a lot of other crap food, and my weight tends to ebb and flow just like the rest of the world. It’s part of life and part of being human. And sure enough the minute I gain a few pounds, I am told to lose weight and the minute I lose weight I am told to gain it. It’s this never ending cycle to which someone, somewhere isn’t going to like the way I look. 

But guess what – I am going to change the standard! I am going to change the world. I am going to promote change. I am going to promote body positivity. Us ladies need to stick together!! It’s time to start supporting one another and create a culture that supports women of any shape or size!!

Thankfully companies already exist with this sole purpose, so I’m not alone! Ideology Basics (sold exclusively at Macys) supports women in a quest to be comfortable regardless of the number on a scale or the size they wear. Let’s all just live our lives, do things that make us happy and quit beating each other up for gosh sakes! Who's with me?!!!
