Baby Got Back...

Dear Cellulite,

I'm calling a truce. I'm even gonna try make friends with you. You see it just occurred to me that hating on you is in effect, hating on myself. This epiphany smacked me upside the head as I watched 8 dancers with a UK size 6 frame rehearse. The cameraman selflessly did a close up on their legs and bottoms, which was the projected onto 25 foot screens, they were wearing hot pants, they all had cellulite. I am a normal girl and sometimes I curse you and I do not even have much of you, but if people who dance for eight hours a day, eat healthily and are so toned you could bounce a 50p of their bottoms are privy to your company I am just gonna surrender to the simple fact that you are a part of life, as much as breathing, eating and sleeping etc...

And so farewell, lotions and overpriced potions, adieu power walking and massage, cheerio cursing my own body every time the light is less then flattering and hello liberation, thy name is normal...

Yours sincerely,


  1. May be the greatest video of all time.

    Yes, I have also waved the white flag. Bumps and puckers be damned. I'm a 44 year old woman, not a runway model. "F" it front, back and sideways!

  2. huh. I never cared one way or another. I have bigger fish to fry...like my one spider vein that I found...and there aint no lotion for THAT!

  3. You are so much more evolved than I am; I have yet to embrace the cellulite. That's because my flabby upper arms get in the way.

  4. Very Zen of you, embracing your enemy and all.

  5. Amen! I agree and feel better about my own cellulite

  6. I feel so much better now! Not sure if that is because of your revelation or just getting to see that video again.
