"Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels" - Kate Moss

Oh it's sooo good to be back on my home computer. I don't know how people live without internet access at home. Even tho I did technically have access on my blackberry, on my work computer, at my friends' houses and even, I'm sure, at public libraries (do people still go online there?) However NOTHING beats your home PC (please pause while I give my Dell a big hug).
What's really silly is that my 2 bedroom apartment has 3 computers (1 desktop and 2 laptops) so you'd think between the 3 of them at least ONE would be up and running?? Ha! Properly working computers are for the rich.

So super model Kate Moss is under fire for reportedly saying "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels"  which is apparently a popular saying among pro-anorexia websites.
Wow. I guess there's a website for everything.
The problem for me is that I agree. It's part of the motivation I use to slim down and shed the extra pounds. Isn't that why the weight loss industry rakes billions of $$$ per year? Everyone wants to be 'skinny'.

What better motivation NOT to have that extra slice of pizza or that large chunk of chocolate cake or the fatty what-cha-ma-call-it, the deep fried whatever and to instead make healthier food choices.
Would people like it better if she said "Nothing tastes as good as a healthy body accompanied by a well balanced diet feels"? This is how I would interpret it anyway. As a girl who is still trying to make leggings looks good (not there yet) I need all the motivation & witty (if harsh) sayings I can find!

Are people mad that she said it or mad that she's right?

Anorexia (and its sister illness - Bulimia) is the side effect of our desire to be slender, skinny, tiny, small, petite, etc. Why kick the messenger (she's so skinny, they'd probably miss her anyway), maybe the naysayers would be better off looking at why they're mad at the message itself.

SLIMMING TIP:  Decide on your healthy size. There are a million tools out there to help us determine what a healthy weight and size is for our body types so we should utilize them. Knowing your proper weight range can help in setting realistic goals. 
At 5'7" with a large frame (I gain beautiful muscles quite easily,yay!) my healthy (or normal) weight range is 140lbs to 160lbs. My current goal - 150 to 158lbs. 
Caveat - make sure a variety of sources are used! Personal Trainers, physicians and various trusted health oritented websites combined can provide a great overall view of what proper physical fitness and a healhty lifestyle should look like.

Yee gads -according to one source, I should weigh less than 135lbs -yikes! I think I came out of the womb weighing in @ 145 so I have long since passed that low, low mark. :)

Happy Eating!

Really New York City, like a number of metropolitan areas. I live to get advice from consultant, I think this barely works for anything! So they get a low score and a better grade, okay.
