Shout Out to Never Say Diet

Beauty Schooled writer Virginia has been blogging at iVillage about fascinating things like the FDA’s potential calorie-counting measures and the taco-eating beauty queen.

Today, she’s collected stories about earliest “bad body” moments, when the good body/bad body was first called out. I participated with a story about a sales lady pointing out my “bubble butt” while shopping for a dress to wear to my friend’s Bat Mitzvah. I was 11, which I thought was quite young.  Reading some of the other stories, however, I now feel blessed to have made it that long before somebody told me there was something “wrong” with me (which there obviously isn’t).
