Taste Everything. Eat Nothing
That’s the thing though, isn’t it? Rich people can afford to diet and excersize and have WLS and a personal trainer and/or chef, but the rest of us can’t. It’s a sign of success to be thin and to be able to stay thin and beautiful. Fat people are unsuccesful, poor, slobs, etc. (Don’t even get me started on how expensive cosmetics are!)
Some women, such as myself, are left with interesting scars after labour and delivery, some physical, some mental. With C-sections on the rise, more and more women will have a long horizontal scar and an overhanging stomach for the rest of their lives (unless they can afford cosmetic surgery to fix it).
This is, obviously, not attractive according to current standards. Stretch marks, both on the stomach and breasts, are permanent though they may fade with time. The emotional and mental stress of labour and delivery, pressure from doctors and nurses to simply submit to their expertise — to ignore the body’s messages, to lay quiet, to be acted upon instead of act — can also leave scars, though they have little to do with physical beauty. Post-partum depression is nothing to sneeze at either; varying from simply a couple of weeks of feeling down to outright homicidal urges, it effects a large number of women and can last for years.
The last thing any woman needs is yet another photo of a conventionally beautiful woman in a bikini telling other women not to eat, ESPECIALLY after giving birth. We’ve got more important things to think about than how we look with a new baby in the home, like how to get enough sleep, making sure we’re eating enough and our baby is feeding well. Looking good after delivery should not be a priority for anyone.
