Eleanor Roosevelt and Valerie Bertinelli
Eleanor Roosevelt was a very wise woman. I have tried to live my life by the quote "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." I am a very firm believer in that. But it's really difficult not to give consent when I have to listen to Valerir Bertinelli on TV vowing to lose weight with Jenny Craig because she's fat. She's a size 14!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am a size 16-18. If that woman is fat, I should just give up. I am just so angry at being made to feel that size 14 is fat and I therefore am fatter than fat. I thought that once I got through high school and college I was done with this crap! I'm tired of having these woman who look more than skinny enough to me tell me that they're fat and therefore so am I. You know what, I'm heavier than I want to be, but I'm not fat. I want to get back down to a 14, but that's where I stop. So while Valerie Bertinelli vows to get smaller than a 14, I make 14 my goal. So screw you Jenny Craig and Valerie Bertinelli. I'm happy with who I am and you're not going to make me want to change.
