For many many years going way back in time there has always been immense pressure on women that you had to look a certain way in order to be considered beautiful. You had to have a teeny tiny waste, blonde hair, and big breasts. So in other words you had to look like a real life barbie doll which in reality those measurements are extremely unhealthy. There are still those people today that feel that a woman is not attractive unless she is blonde and skinny. Which I think is why Taylor Swift gets the criticism she gets because most of her girl squad is made up of skinny blondes.
There is still so much pressure on women that you have to be a size 2 in order to be considered beautiful and sexy. We should not be teaching the younger generations that they have to be a certain size to be considered beautiful. We should be teaching the younger generation that it doesn’t matter what size you are because beauty is about who you are on the inside not what size you are.
My waist line does not define the person I am and it should not define the person that you are either. Now do I want to lose a little bit of weight and be more healthy? Absolutely but I’m going to do it for me I’m not going to do it for anyone else. The only person that should ever play a role in how you look is yourself and you should be doing it for you not for anyone else. You should do what you want to do because it makes you happy.
The fact that society is trying to pass a size 2 as being what the normal size should be is beyond ridiculous. The average size of a woman is between a size 10 and 14 not a size 2. Also, keep this in mind that the size 2 of today was not the same as the size two of years ago. If you feel like you need to be a size 2 to make you feel better than go for it but there is a healthy way to be a size 2 and an unhealthy way. When you are trying to be a smaller size you need to take in account yes you need to burn more calories than you consume but you also have to realize that you need to eat a little bit more because you are losing more. So if you eat only 1200 calories and then go work out and burn 500 calories your body didn’t consume the amount of calories it really needs for the day.
We need to stop telling women that they need to be a certain size to feel sexy. Feeling sexy is something that comes from within yourself. If you walk into a room and you have that confidence about you and the way you look than someone in that room is going to think oh wow look at her. If you walk into a room even if your dressed in a sexy outfit but you have zero confidence and your head down than you probably aren’t going to get noticed the way you want to get noticed.
Beauty does not have a size limit and it’s really time to end the thought process that it does. It’s time to stop saying to women that we have to be a certain size. It’s time to stop telling women they need to lose weight in order to be considered beautiful. It’s time to stop telling women that they can’t be a model if they are above a size 0. All of this needs to stop and the only way it’s going to stop is if we make that mindset reality. If we start supporting body positive movement. Start showing beauty at all sizes. Besides that who really defines what one persons idea of beauty is? What I think is beautiful may not be what you think is beautiful.
