That Matter of Dieting...

To a sistah I care deeply about... Let me say this once and for all:

In today's world with its plethora of fashion styles and stitches, with all the options we now have at our finger- and toe-tips; with the million and one fine details that can be manipulated to perfectly sculpt clothes to match any body:
I WILL NOT BE SCULPTING MY BODY TO FIT ANY CLOTHES!!!
It's backward and retrogade and all too common: too many women are going on diets and performing all varieties of excruciating acrobatics to fit into that 'perfect li'l dress' or the 'perfect pair o jeans' that obviously can't be that perfect if it doesn't FIT you with ease when you try it on, or if you have to be going through the world's most intense obstacle course to get into it...

I'm just sayin': we have too many options and variety in today's society for me to get so stuck on one print or stitch or shape or style that I decide to change my body's entire contour (which is FABulous BTW, thank you) for something as manipulatable (is that a word?) as clothes... I won't do it: I won't, I won't, I won't! Nah sah! Not worth it at all...

... and the gyal who got me started on this rant knows herself... Luv yuh curves, tek yuh 'fluffy' to the world, and stop trying to change yuh body to fit clothes that weren't made for you from the get-go! You are pretty durned fabulous-stop bein' such a @$$%^&*! and believe it! Nuff said!

Now, to the rest of y'all, TGIF and happy weekend. Shalom.
