I love my husband.
I love my son.
I love my body.
I'm sure the first two comments did not surprise you, but did the third?
I have a new gig as a fashion writer at All Things Chic.
You will not see me make self-disparaging remarks, not because I'm perfect... oh wait, is that in itself a self-disparaging remark?? or catering to our common attitudes as women?? We women do it as a matter of course. And if we don't, we are hated.
Let's stop that now. I'm not being arrogant. I have come to know and accept and be with my body. So don't hate me, and stop hating your body, yourself.
Let's be like men. Stick out our beer bellies, scratch it, and say "look at my awesome bod!"
