That's crazy. And you know they've heard about proper eating in health classes and possibly from their coaches and their parents and maybe even from television, but still they see anorexia as the only way. Let's hope it's only that girl who was confused, and that the other set her straight!
I wish I had some answer. I had an awesome body in high school and ALWAYS wanted to loose weight too! Stupid media. If only my body NOW could go back and beat the crap out of my body THEN. Sheesh!
Loose weight? Did I really just type that?
Apparently my high school brain needs to come beat up my post-college brain!
lol, kate. if it makes you feel any better, i didn't notice in the first comment. :)
oh thats so sad! If i were you and had a cake of soap handy i would have washed their mouths out!
(Or, maybe i wouldnt have...)
Oh, Emily. I am SO with you. I have been hearing so much of this kind of stuff lately. Even from adult women. Why is it that we spend so much time bagging on our bodies and so much energy trying to punish ourselves into a size 6.
It's ridiculous, really.
Some Geneen Roth books might be good food for your soul. I recently read "Appetites" and LOVED it. She also has a great website: Geneen Roth.com
