Ice cream and supermodels

I have been watched a few movies recently that made me think. Yeah, I do actually think about the movies I watch even though I am mostly watching non thinking movies right now. I just can't handle too much thinking or explosions or anything like that, haha, I think that it has something to do with becoming a mom. Maybe. Just a theory. Anyway, back to the movies. They have been chick flicks. Here's the deal with chick flicks, most of the time they are super skinny women, they are skinnier than they look because as we all know "the camera adds ten pounds". So where am I going with all of this? Hold on. I'm getting to my point. Every time something went poorly or "the girls" got together they ate junk food. Lots of it. Chips, ice cream, take out pizza, take out Chinese... Occasionally they go jogging. Or something.

Most of the time I just take it all in stride, probably like most of us do while watching a chick flick. BUT I really think there is a poor message going out, a mixed message... the message is saying that you not only can eat junk food and hardly work out but if you are not able to eat junk food and hardly work out and keep a media perfect figure. Talk about depressing! Doesn't it make you want to eat a pint of ice cream just thinking about it?

Every SAHM needs a way to earn her coffee money....  


  1. I can't even look at Sarah Jessica Parker anymore because she is so thin. It hurts me to look at her. You are very right. We watch all sorts of frivolous movies and then use them as a teaching tool for our Youngun.

  2. I've never thought about it. So true.

  3. I have actually thought about it. Also what is assumed is that these actresses are the same size as us. Being a 5'10" height, I always am amazed how these gals only stand 5'0 to 5'2 and weigh around 100 pounds,wear sizes 0-2. Crazy.
