I’VE BEEN LYING TO EVERYONE
I’ve been lying through my teeth.
I’m not proud of it but maybe by being honest I can help other ladies who feel the same way feel better about themselves. So here goes…
Bianca as she appeared in Madison magazine early this year.
I do NOT feel “sexy” in my body even though I always say that I do – no matter how I look.
Ok, there I said it. I know, I know, I’m meant to be a Hooplarian – we the race of women that do not need to look like Miley Cyrus to feel sexy. But I’m here to tell you that I feel I may in fact be speaking on behalf of quite a few women when I say that is BULLSHIT.
I have put on weight (12 kg to be exact) due to medication I was prescribed for my generalised anxiety disorder (and before you point your perfectly manicured finger and call me crazy, I hate to tell you but one in four people go undiagnosed with this, so look around you, sunshine – you or someone you know and love has this too).
Anyway, I was always the girl that “felt comfy in her skin”. I’m a “role model” apparently (well that’s what it says when I google myself) when it comes to body image.
But I had a real wake-up call and moment of shitty clarity as I sat in a cafe the other day.
Has this happened to you lately? I’m there with my best friend when some hot 20-something in tiiiiiiiny little denim hot pants leans over me to grab a magazine. I had that moment – as most women do – when I thought I can smile and pretend that her tiny toned hot little SKINNY arse doesn’t make me feel shit about myself right now.
Or I can be really, really honest and say, YES IT DOES!!!
