First, I am tired of people in bikinis on the cover of People. Isn't there anything better to talk about? As I typed that sentence I realized how funny that is coming from a girl who is blogging about her weight loss journey and has even posted a picture of herself in a bikini on said blog. I am a girl of contradictions. REGARDLESS! It would be one thing if the person in the bikini had actually been fat...which brings me to #2.
She has 153 in that "horrifying" "FAT" Picture. Listen People...153 is not fat. Perhaps Melissa was not making the healthiest choices...but COME ON! I find it ironic that the cover gives a sneak peak into the article where basically Melissa is tired of people calling her fat...and the way hollywood defines a woman's body...but stay with me here...isn't she doing the exact same thing? Isn't she perpetuating the very problem she is yacking about by calling herself fat and horrifying at 153 pounds.
Woo...I feel better.
Also, I saw that this is going to be on Discovery Health tonight. I thought I might give it a watch.
I'M FAT AGAIN: A BEST LIFE SPECIAL, premiering Thursday, May 28, at 8 PM (ET/PT), focuses on the agonizing weight fluctuation process known as "yo-yo dieting." Greene teaches three frustrated individuals how they can permanently break the cycle of crash diets followed by rapid weight gain by observing his principles of balance, moderation and physical activity. In this special, Greene helps 32-year-old Joya, a classic yo-yo dieter, who gains back more weight each time a diet trend fades. I'M FAT AGAIN also features an appearance by Dr. Mehmet Oz, Discovery Health's chief medical officer and medical expert for The Oprah Winfrey Show. Together, Dr. Oz and Greene discuss gastric bypass surgery as the special follows a married couple who underwent the surgery but defeated any chance of success by not changing their couch-potato lifestyles.
