Who came up with this shit…

I mean this was GENIUS!!! Do you realize how many people DAILY I wish I could give this too?!! All those girls in the club that wear spandex who CLEARLY should not. Oh my god… the list goes on. I need like a lifetime supply to hand out!!!!!!!!!

UMMMMMM NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

SERIOUSLY AMERICA!!! US GIRLS ALREADY HAVE A CLEARLY DISTORTED VIEW OF BODY IMAGE, SO MUCH THAT WE STARVE OURSELVES, FORCE OURSELVES TO VOMIT, CUT OURSELVES OPEN TO TAKE OUT FAT, CUT OURSELVES OPEN TO INSERT SILICONE, STAPLE OUR STOMACHS, SPEND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ON MIRACLE CREAMS THAT JUST DONT WORK. AT SOME POINT WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THE FACT THAT WE ARE WHO WE ARE AND ON THE OUTSIDE, WE COULD BE THE PRETTIEST THING, BUT BE THE UGLIEST THING ON THE INSIDE AND VICE VERSA, BUT ITS ALL A MATTER OF TASTE. WE CAN NOT HELP GENETICS. SOME GIRLS ARE SIZE 0 SOME ARE SIZE 10, BUT IN THE END, THEY ARE WHO THEY ARE AND CREAMS THAT ARE CLEARLY INSULTING OR PROMISE RESULTS THAT ARE JUST NOT OBTAINABLE JUST ENCOURAGE THE ALREADY DECREASING BODY IMAGE US AMERICAN GIRLS FACE BECAUSE WE ALL WANT TO LOOK LIKE JENNIFER ANISTON (OK, THATS JUST A PERSONAL FAVORITE OF MINE) OR NICOLE RITCHIE ETC. CLEARLY NICOLE RITCHIE DOES/DID NOT LOOK HEALTHY. SHE LOOKED SKELETAL! SO YEA, I WISH I HAD A SUPPLY OF THESE CREAMS SO I CAN GIVE THEM TO MY ENEMIES BECAUSE YES, BEING CALLED FAT STABS LIKE A KNIFE (EVEN IF YOU ARE 5’4″ AND 110 LBS. DOESN’T MATTER) BUT IF YOU WALKED IN A STORE AND SAW A PRODUCT CALLED FAT GIRL SLIM…YEA, MAYBE THE SKINNY MINNY’S WOULD THINK ITS FUNNY, BUT THOSE THAT ARE AVERAGE AND ABOVE PROBABLY WOULD NOT. SO, YES, MAYBE THIS WAS A GENIOUS MARKETING TOOL TO GET THE SKINNY GIRLS TO BUY MORE PRODUCTS TO KEEP THEIR VANITY, BUT IT ALSO MAKES A LOT OF OTHER FEEL KINDA BAD.

OK. SORRY FOR THIS DEEP AND NOT THAT FUNNY BLOG POST, BUT BODY IMAGE HAS BEEN A BIG PART OF MY LIFE FOR MANY MANY YEARS AND HEY… I MAY END UP BUY THIS PRODUCT TO SEE IF IT WORKS, BUT I ALSO MIGHT NOT. I AM NOT GOING TO TAKE A STAND FORBIDDING THE PURCHASE OF THE PRODUCT, BUT I AM SAYING THAT THE MARKETING TECHNIQUE COULD MAKE A LOT OF PEOPLE FEEL QUITE BAD ABOUT THEMSELVES.

SOME OF YOU MAY THINK, WELL, WHAT THE HELL DOES SHE KNOW? SHE’S A SIZE 2, WHAT DOES SHE KNOW ABOUT LIFE BEING BIGGER? WELL I WASN’T ALWAYS THIS SIZE. I WAS ABOUT 30 LBS HEAVIER IN COLLEGE, BUT ALSO, I HAVE SOME FRIENDS WHO HAVE HAD TROUBLE WITH WEIGHT. AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT THEY EAT AND EXERCISE, BUT A PROBLEM WITH THEIR THYROID. AND WHILE THEY DO WHAT THEY CAN TO TRY TO LOSE WEIGHT AND EAT HEALTHY AND EXERCISE, THEIR THYROID IS A BIOLOGICAL PROBLEM THAT CAN BE HELPED WITH MEDICATION, BUT NOT FIXED. WHEN WE BECAME FRIENDS, I WAS THE PREPPY BLONDE CHEERLEADER WHO WAS BLONDE AS BLONDE, TAN AS ALL GET OUT, AND MISS DO-GOODER CHEERLEADER (on the outside). SHE WAS MY SIZE BUT WORE DRESSES DOWN TO HER ANKLES THAT WERE BLACK. HAD JET BLACK HAIR. HER FACE PAINTED ALMOST WHITE AND LIPSTICK WAS ALWAYS A VERY VERY DEEP SHADE OF RED. WE WERE AN ODD COUPLE, BUT WE WERE FRIENDS. THEN SHE STARTED GAINING WEIGHT AND WE DIDN’T KNOW WHY. IT WAS A THYROID ISSUE. SHE ALSO BECAME PREGNANT, GAINED MORE WEIGHT AND AFTER HAVING THE BABY COULDN’T SHED THE WEIGHT. SHE IS STILL THE SAME PERSON SHE WAS 12 YEARS AGO THOUGH. AND I HAVE WATCHED HER STRUGGLE AND STUGGLE TO FIGURE OUT WHY NOTHING WAS WORKING. AND GOING TO STORES AND NOTHING EVER FITTING AND NEVER BEING ABLE TO DRESS IN THE STYLES SHE LIKED. UGH. ITS SO SAD. OK. OFF THE TOPIC. BUT YES, I DON’T PERSONALLY IN MY HEAD KNOW THE THOUGHTS SHE HAS, BUT I KNOW MY THOUGHTS WITH HER AND I KNOW WHAT SHE TOLD/TELLS ME. SO, WHILE THIS BRAND OF CREAM MAY ATTRACT A MARKET, IT CAN STILL HURT A LOT OF PEOPLE. YOU DON’T SEE LOREAL PUTTING OUT AN AGING CREAM THAT CALLS WOMEN OLD HAGS DO YOU?! THATS ALL I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THAT.
