RHWONY: Cellulite should be a four letter word

Well, well, well old friends...we meet again. SMILF and BOTB got me all nostalgic when I saw their posts pop up in my google reader and made me want to hop on this bandwagon once again. Ok, enough reminiscing...on to the goods.

There is an issue we must discuss. It is cellulite. It is disgusting and horrible and something I think about at least once a day. I have it. It is a problem. Now, I will say this about myself... I am a little bit (ok a LOT bit) body conscious. This does not mean that I think I'm fat or gross or have an eating disorder anything schizo like that. It means that I value health and fitness. It means that I think about what I put in my body (that means food...get your head out of the gutter, BOTB). It means that I exercise at least 5 days a week. I work hard.

That being said...I also have DNA which has come from my parents and their parents. Unfortch for me, my mom, all of her sisters and her mom and probably her sisters and mom and so on... all have cellulite. From the heaviest sister to the skinniest of minnies, they all have it. So obviously, yours truly would also be on the recieving of this genetic masterpiece. And now at my ripe age of - well let's just say I'm CLINGING to my twenties - a few dimples have developed juuuuuust under my booty and I must say, the rest of my thighs aren't looking as taut as they once did. I know there is no cure, but I also know that Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian and probably a million and fifty other American women have it...but we don't see it. I need to know how to solve this problem. Jennfier...what is your secret?

So, rant complete. I know that I am thin, so I don't need people to reinforce that to me (like every friend I have does constantly "Oh stop, you weigh like, two pounds") and I realize that if I stopped talking about it, surely no one would notice. But we women LOVE to hilight our flaws. So there's mine for the day.

It's great to be back. WOW that felt good!
