This evening I went for a spin session at the gym and thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved this class especially because the instructor actually had a body shape I would not mind having (it’s always more of an incentive to do the class when the instructor isn’t overweight). Anyway this spin lady was really thin and still had a bum and hips! I mean don’t get me wrong I have seen thin people with figure, but it had never really sunk in before, it’s like my ‘body eyes’ were de mystified. I have grown up believing that thin people do not have curves, (needless to say it has been men who have been giving me this less than truthful advice for reasons I will not name in this blog).
Nevertheless I thought I would get the word out there, especially to black women. Men will say that they want a woman they can hold, and that once you drop below a certain size, you will no longer be curvy. It is comments like this that keep us women overweight and unhealthy – don’t believe the lie. I saw it with my own eyes today, it is not only celebs who can have a figure and a slim body.
