Hiked South Mountain, painted my nails, washed my hair, unpacked, read the Spanish and French Vogues I brought home with me, ate a lot of strawberries, bananas, raspberries and blackberries, marathoned through the second season of Community, went for a nice long drive listening to Marketplace (poorly timed—should have waited for Fresh Air), and now I’m here. And it’s seven pm.
“Curvy women are real women. Skinny women are real women. Women who have had boob jobs or lip enhancements or liposuction are still real women. Size 0 may make no sense mathematically, but a woman who wears that size is as real as the one who wears a size 16. What makes us “real” people is not the shape of our flesh but our basic humanity. And we lose our humanity when we judge – not when we lose weight, gain weight, or make the intensely personal decision to undergo cosmetic surgery.”—Hugo Schwyzer (via humanfordinner)
