What it must be like to be so skinny that you can where two coats at one time? This morning on the bus a woman got on and she was wearing two coats. And not like a jean jacket and an other coat but two full on winter coats. She wasn't a crazy lady, or at least didn't appear to be. In fact she was kind of really stylish. And skinny. The coats didn't look bulky or too tight. It was as if those two coats were meant to be worn together even though they were clearly two different coats. It got me thinking about being thin. Sometime I wonder how different my life would be if I was skinny. For the most part I am sure it would be the same. Same house, husband, baby, same me (personality wise) etc. Except I would have a way better wardrobe. Because the nice clothes of this world are made for thinner ladies. Thinner than me anyway. Having boobs means not finding shirts that fit right in the arms but can still be buttoned up at the same time. Having to buy a bigger size but try not to look bigger in the process can be tough. I imagine that shopping as a skinny girl is way easier. Everything would fit right, you would have so many options. Sometimes I see a badly dressed skinny lady and it makes me sad because I feel like if I was her size, I would be so stylish. If I had her body, I would for sure take advantage of the awesome options that would be out there for me. Alas, I do not. I have my body. And don't get me wrong, this body produced the most awesome little girl around so I am very lucky to have it. But with that little girl also came some extra curves that I am still trying to get used to. But not too used to. My year of wearing yoga pants is over and I am back amongst the working stiffs, which means fitting into clothes that may no longer want to fit on me. So what's a girl to do? Eat more cookies? Yes, but also start to get healthy. That's what it's about right? Who cares about thin/thick, skinny/fat it's all about being healthy. So that's what I will focus on. Curves aren't bad, but heart attacks are. So it's time to find some celery.
