Wierd Thought For The Day

There are women whose only hobby is to obsessively try to make their body shrink.

I mean, that is one of my hobbies, but I have many many hobbies (which typically have more to do with yarn or paint than, say, caloric intake) so that makes me a mite bit less odd than women who literally think of nothing else during their recreational time.


  1. They say that women who are obsessed with this kind of thing do so because something in another part of thier world is upsetting them and this is one thing they can do to feel in control.

    Food for thought. Not saying you, just i think when it becomes an all consuming thought it's not vanity, it's a feeling of lack of control of ones life.

  2. I have lots of past times, I've just made body shrinking more then a past time, I've made it an everyday part of my life! Well, except maybe during the Holidays, but more then just vanity, overall and most importantly for me, for MY HEALTH!! God gave us one body and one body only. It is ours to do with as we please, but once we use it all up, we get no more...or so I've been told. (I've love it if the dirty rats were wrong....but I'm not yet willing to test the theory). Personally, I think there's nothing wrong with this obession as long as it is a healthy one, and one doesn't go to extremes. If one is unrealistic about their goals and obtaining the goal results in harmful side effects, that's no good. But then I guess if you make it a part of your eveyday life, it's no longer considered an obession is it?
