Yes, I think Kirstie Alley looked great the other day. No, I still think she’s a disingenuous preening ass who loves to pretend all her publicized sashaying is for some greater good of womankind. But good for her for making it easier for older and heavier women to appear on Oprah dressed like bitter concubines. Next!
Today is good, what with all the unwanted pounds and Republicans and Federlines that we’re getting rid of. I weighed myself this morning, and while I’d hoped the results had been little better and that my metabolism had taken over both the House and the Senate of my Fat Cell Congress, I’ve still lost ten pounds in four weeks. Chris, who is a guy, has lost about ten times that in the same amount of time. I know human biology dictates this. I would kindly like to inform human biology that I’m on the Pill and don’t happen to have any needy little bitty babies depending on my body fat reserves to protect them from the cold prehistoric world. Is there any way I can just upgrade to a childless hussy biological model, where I can use my body fat reserves to absorb vodka? No?
Kirstie looked great, but there’s no way in Hades she weighs 145.
I agree Melinda – I wish women could be honest about the “number”….she looks great and I’m sure she is feeling good. But it’s that number that we always seem to lie about. And I’m sure she would be made fun of in the media if she told her actual weight. I’ve heard a lot of people make fun of someone by saying “she must be 200 pounds” and I weigh almost that, but when you tell someone they almost always respond “well, you don’t look that heavy”. Peoples perception is way off. I blame all the skinny girls 😉
I have doubts about Kirstie and The Number. 145? No way. But I am proud of her for losing weight and showing that you don’t need to be a desiccated shriveling of a woman to be considered beautiful.
As a nerdy techie note: the link to Kirstie looking great is missing the “h” of the “http” part.
By the way, 10 pounds in 4 weeks is freaking awesome.
I agree with Julie – I think we all get gasps when we say our “real number” (I’m 5’9″ and 185 by the way) is because you just never hear anyone say “185” in relation to their weight. So it sounds huge just because it’s unusual to hear it at all.
p.s. does anyone else think Kirstie should go back to brunette?
I just finished Eat to Live. I didn’t know that the diet I’ve been following all along was Eat to Die. But now I know. I look forward to losing 10 pounds in the next four weeks.
I’m not even sure how I got here now, it had something to do with creepy recipe cards or something, but anyways:
I’m sick of Kirstie too. It may sound bad but I keep waiting for her to give up, get liposuction, and quit begging for attention already. I think she’s full of shit, not ho hos and cheeseburgers. And and and I feel like bookmarking you.
I would like the upgrade as well, please.
Ach. I get the “you don’t look like you’re 170 lbs.” thing all the time, and it drives me nuts, maybe because I desperately want it not to matter even if I DID look like I was 170 lbs.
You’re absolutely brilliant, and I’ll be linking you if it’s alright.
I am pregnant and seeing my weight each week at the doctor’s office has been incredibly challenging. I thought that being pregnant would give me a break from worrying about it, but now I just get, “Oh, you don’t look like you are … months pregnant!” I’ve realized it is the same thing.
I concur. Who does she think she’s fooling with that 145? 165 perhaps… Not to be a sniping nitpicker. Just want truth in advertising.
I just think it’s shameful for her to get up there and prance around in her underwear. What do her kids think? Have the thetans assumed control of her senses? She always seems spaced out when I see her.
I think it’s all so contrived.
I once got in a “fight” with a nurse when I was giving blood because she refused to believe I weighed 165. (I am 5′ 8″) I asked her: who lies up?
I think many people, even health professionals don’t really know what 170 looks like. It’s not all that freaking bad.
I think a lot of (in particular) men think all women are supposed to weigh 125, no matter what height or body type they are.
And I’d also like to upgrade to a childless hussy biological model – I can even skip the vodka part!
