HATE FORM, SAVE CASH

It has just occured to me that a poor body image is a money saver.

You are: Surfing the Internet.

You say: Oh that is such a cute dress!

You think: But it sure wouldn't look like that on me with my thighs the size of Alaska (baked) and my gut . . . (And on.)

You don't: Buy the dress. Because your hideous body would make the gorgeous confection a total waste of money.

You save: Money.

Brilliant.

(This was most assuredly not a post seeking some kind of affirmation that I am not a giant house of a girl. No "Oh, don't say thats" or "Oh no you're nots," please. I know what I am. And don't agree with my view of myself either. That's just plain rude.)

I will be rude and tell you I think you are a nerd... A cool nerd though that I am sure could pull any dress off :-)

As long as the dress is decked out in leather fringe, and beep tassles, you can pull it off. No doubt!

So I don't get to call you a Fatty or tell you that when you stand to the side I can't see you anymore because you are so thin??? I will say it anyway...I think you look great. But, I do understand that self image is what is important...so just start telling yourself how hot you are!

I won't tell you anything in regards to your weight. I haven't seen you for about a year, so you very well could be a "house of a girl." (I highly doubt it.) But I am going to roll my eyes at your comments though, because working in retail, I hear statements exactly like yours from different women day in and day out. I swear 75% of today's female population suffers from body dysmorphia.

My every thought in a nutshell.
