I’m finding this story that Greatist published totally fascinating. They took a closer look at body ideals over the last 100 years and the results are crazy. Take a look.

Goes to show that “body ideals” are trendy and that you should just love and embrace what your momma gave ya. But really, a bread diet?? Also, now I’ll be singing ZZ Top in my dreams tonight.

    What an eye-opener this is! And of course, no one can be all these
    body types, so isn’t it sad for all the women who feel they are not
    good enough because they are not the type that is “in” at the moment.
    So, yes, “love and embrace what your mama gave ya.”

  3. LOVED this read!! I’ll definitely be sharing. Where will we go next?!
