The Girl On Page 194.

In a rush to get to work this morning, I felt bla. Even though I put my gym bag in the back seat i thought-- i have nooo energy to work out today. Sometimes you just need to skip and take a day for yourself. And then i felt my tummy sort of hang over my victoria secret skivvies while sitting at my desk.

before i had a chance to feel horrified, the Today Show had this gorgeous girl as a guest. Glamour subscribers, i bet you remember her as i did- instantly.


as described from this site: "a 20-year-old model with—get ready—a roll in her stomach. Yes, I really wrote that: she has a roll of fat, as well as some faint stretch marks and sturdy looking thighs."

and guess what? she is GORGEOUS. She makes women like me want to shout from rooftops! So gym be damned, i will feel OK with taking a day off from you and hit the vintage shop around the corner instead.

Perhaps tomorrow, you can take it out on me but today- i win.

I love this girl, and I loved her pic in Glamour... this is the very reason I love Glamour, period.
Real women have curves! Our bodies are supposed to... they were designed to. Whether those curves have been with us our whole lives, or show up after bearing children, it is natural and beautiful. I wish more people would realize this...

she's pretty although that looks like preggers roll if i'm not mistaken?

when i don't feel like working out, i go to the victoria's secret website then get my butt on the treadmill. lol

sarah that's the whole point! that they're showing REAL women, instead of victoria secret models. We can't all be born like them (or you! *wink) and most of us aren't. I think she's beautiful.

But next time i skip out on the gym, i'll take your suggestion lol

Sarah Alaoui said...

Haha no I totally get the point...she's gorgeous AND has flab. I have flab too so she makes me feel gorgeous. ohh media...and its affects on us :)

YES YES YES YES! I saw her in Glamour, in print, and the instant I turned the page my eyes fell on her and I just stared. I was SO happy to see a real person in the magazine and thank GOD Glamour puts women like her in print. She is beautiful and wonderful.

Micaela said...

yay sarah!!! and i highly doubt you have flab. :)

Kaylen (as i will tell you on your own blog in a second) i loved your post on your size 14 jeans. I loved your honesty and your inspiration. That you didn't let it affect you as others would, especially considering you're getting married! i love that about you- you really are a happy girl and see the best of things. That post meant a lot because i'm forever beating myself up over the 15 pounds i've gained leaving the news industry... when why? i'm happy right? healthy? who cares that i don't fit into a size 6. i really really loved your post.
