I was just watching GMA & apparently people everywhere (tabloids & such) are commenting about Cheryl Burke's weight. They think she's fat!!! Are you serious?
She said herself on the show that she's a size 4, same as last season, but that she has gained weight. A.whole.5.pounds. Woo! 5 pounds. If that makes her fat, I can't be more glad that I'm NOT a celebrity. What would they have thought about my pregnancy and the fact that over a year after my son was born, I still have at least 10 pounds of baby weight still packed on?!
Geez, people are unbelievable. I searched it on Google, and there are forums talking about her being pregnant (at least 4 months) and how she's fat (or at the very least, more curvy). If that's what she looks like 4 months pregnant (which she is NOT), I want that kind of pregnancy.
What kind of message are we sending our children and ourselves?? That you need to be UNDER size 4 to be skinny? That you can't pack on 5 pounds without everyone thinking you're pregnant?
I love how Cheryl ended her interview this morning. She just opened her own dance studio, and she wants nothing more than to promote physical fitness. Thank you! That is the message we want to send our progeny: that being beautiful includes exercise but not one boxed up image of what "beautiful & skinny" is. You can be a size 14 as long as you're taking care of yourself.
I know it breaks my heart to see celebrity women told how "fat" they are. And it breaks my heart that many Hollywood mommies feel the need to be back to their original size mere weeks after the birth of their children. Don't they have something better to do (like care for said children) instead of working hours in a gym??? I can't recall a doctor telling me to work out the following week.
Anyway....CHERYL YOU ARE NOT FAT! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL AND THANK YOU FOR THE POSITIVE MESSAGE TO YOUNG GIRLS (AND OLD ONES FOR THAT FACT)!
