So I haven’t done a Girl Talk post in a while, but I made one for today! It’s a lot shorter than my other ones, but I think it’s a really straightforward topic, and relatable! Since some people might be new or need a refresher, here is a link to a summary of what “Girl Talk” is. That link also includes the previous posts I’ve done under this category if you are interested in reading more of these!
One of the many things we have to deal with, being female, is people constantly making observations about our eating choices (typically the unhealthy ones) and telling us how they feel about it.
Unfortunately, the worst part about this is that no mater what they say, it comes off in a negative way.
Women should be able to eat a big lunch without telling people “I haven’t eaten anything all day.” And we should most definitely be able to eat a plate of loaded nachos and not have to clarify that we’ve worked hard all week and deserve it.
I don’t know about you guys but the most dreaded questions to me are definitely “Is that all you’re going to eat?” or “You’re going to eat all that!?”
Girls should feel that they can eat what they want….because they can. And that’s that.
Going along with that, I also don’t see why if a woman is eating healthy, everyone seems to assume she’s unhappy with her size. Is it absurd that we might just want to be treating our bodies’ well!?
Sigh. The world can be so confusing to me sometimes.
