Shame on People Magazine
Did anyone else happen to see this lovely little interactive “Battle of the Bulge” feature in People magazine? Celebs who “battled the bulge” and won? OY VEY.
Three of these women were PREGNANT this year!!! WTF?!
That “bulge” of which they speak, is a BABY BUMP! Give them a break!
While some of those weight loss stories are nice to read about and inspirational (Kelly Osbourne, to name one), I think categorizing pregnant women in the same category as these “bulge-battlers” just seems ridiculous to me!
Yes, it’s wonderful they lost weight post-baby — but do they need to be in the same grouping as celebs who lost weight?
Shouldn’t they have a separate category if they’re going to be “ranked”? I’ve never been pregnant, but isn’t it a bit mean and degrading to these new moms to call battling baby weight “battling the bulge”?
Let’s be real here; all sorts of new body image issues come enough with pregnancy — why make it even worse by including those new moms in this listing — especially knowing the average woman doesn’t have trainers, nannies and nutritionists on hand like many of these new moms?!
How about you? Am I alone here in my anger at this article?
