Today I’m cheating by linking to a post in my other blog that I wrote seven or eight months ago. I was just about the start the job I’m currently in and contemplating what I’d be wearing to work (more of a quandary when I was 20kg heavier than I am now).
In addition a new show, Mike and Molly, was about to start on our television screens here in Oz. I’d read a bit about it over the internet and was intrigued. It got me thinking about how often (or not, as the case may be), we see larger-than-normal people on television.
At the same time I was quite enjoying a show, Drop Dead Diva – which is about to return to our screens for a new season. DDD features a former model in a less-than-perfect body and what is most interesting is that – once the model (Deb) gets past that, her character (Jane) flounces about as if she was still the perfect Size 10 (or 0 in US terms). That in itself (ie. how we see ourselves and how we act) is the biggest lesson for me!
It’s Sunday morning here and I don’t usually post on weekends, but this one seemed kinda relevant to this blog as well. So here it is…. enjoy!
