This even extends into the virtual world. Very seldom do I take the time to really truly follow another gal's blog. Yeah, sure, I'll check in periodically, or when I know they've written about something of interest, but there's this one fellow female blogger whose postings I read all. the. time.
Dunno why, because half of them are really crappy (trust me - she won't mind me saying that), but they're compelling nonetheless. None more so than today's diatribe on Why I'll Never Be Fat. If you look beyond the cursing and the obtuse pop culture references, you'll see why I like this particular posting so much. "Look! It's a woman who has a healthy body image and knows she wants to stay that way! And she's not going to punish herself or use extreme, dangerous, or chemically enhanced measures to maintain that attitude! She's happy that her body works well and she encourages others to challenge themselves physically!"
Just who does she think she is, anyway? A guy? So, Marissa, you're my new happy body attitude hero and I hope to take a li'l bit o' Zen away from your post today. And then pack it up with me when I hop on my bike the next time.
Oh, and if you're having trouble putting down that fast food today, dear readers, this might just make you think twice...
