It’s the New Year and one of the most common resolutions out there is the promise to join a gym, eat healthy or lose weight.
If it wasn’t bad enough the rest of the year that we have this pressure to keep in shape, then why does it seem to triple at the turn of a year…
We sit back and watch our favourite personalities publicly scrutinize themselves to the media… and if they’re not doing it themselves, the media will happily take over and do it for them.
It’s bad enough that we feel constant pressure to keep trim when we’re comparing ourselves to these airbrushed sorts (and even though we know that, it doesn’t stop us dreaming to look like it). So when you have the likes of Imogen Thomas tweeting that she needs to lose 3 ounces, it does make us feel like maybe we’re not taking our weight loss seriously enough!? With a body like that, it’s just making those that might actually need to shed a few pounds, feel bad, while ultimately making herself feel better because let’s face it, she’s going to get told she “doesn’t need to lose weight” or that she has a “beautiful figure” because she has… and she knows she’s not a ten ton Tessy. So results in her literally getting the praise she set out to receive from the www. Well done.
Don’t get me wrong, picture diaries are very handy when wanting to see a change in your shape or size when sticking to a healthy eating and workout plan. But if you REALLY have a issue or hang up about your body, you certainly would NOT post it on Twitter, LEAST of all when you have nearly 235,000 followers! Which leads me to think that this is purely an attention seeking ploy to get herself in the papers. Again. Well done.
Her last tweet said:
“I’m sorry if my ‘weight photo’ made ppl angry. I didn’t mean to- I have some body issues. Hope u all have a lovely day xxx” @Imogen_Thomas
I’m sorry Imogen, but if you have “issues” as you say, and they really were issues, you’d be keeping them to yourself. You can see that your weight updates are bothering people, so the simple answer here, is, stop doing them. You really don’t need to prove anything to the public. They can see your gorgeous, without you pushing for compliments.
Now please stop posting naked pictures of yourself, because we’re struggling to come to terms with the fact that your hot and we’re, well…not (right now).
