an interesting article on the modeling industry...

here's a link to an amazing article and pictorial about regular vs. plus sized models. i know there are some dudes on this team blog, but the article speaks to what our country considers fat or thin, and how people view their bodies.

in the end, i don't think any of us want to be skinny. we all just want to be able to walk without getting out of breathe. we want to be able to run up a flight of stairs, or carry our groceries in without being winded. we want to be strong physically and mentally. and we want to be around a long time for our friends & families.

it's not just about being weight loss weirdos. it's being healthy, happy, and always imperfect but awesome weirdos!

Amen, as well. Altho... (yeah, when do I ever not have something to say???) I appreciated the facts of the article, but not the snarky ending. Of course, that's just my opinion!
