Don’t hate me because I’m __________(beautiful, overweight, tall, slender, etc…). People judge, it’s a fact – not a pleasant one…but, true, nonetheless. And it seems that each of us is subject to specific labels, based upon our weight. Are we thin and bitchy, self-centered, vain – or are we not-so-thin and lazy, slow or careless. Well, WE KNOW that these stereotypes do not define us – yet, each day, those who meet us make split second decisions about who we are…based upon one simple characteristic…our weight. Glamour magazine teamed with Yale University to research how we judge, and are judged, on the basis of our weight. Read more about their study. In any event – even if we can’t stop others from labeling us – there is a manner of moving our proportions around that can make US happy. Since everyone knows that you can’t please all of the people…all of the time – it might just be best if we please ourselves, first : ).
