I have one more 2-word mantra to add to my list:


I stumbled on this awesome post that showcases the preferred and popular body types through the decades. It’s FASCINATING!

I have to quote their takeaway because it quotes Tina Fey AND ends with, well, pretty much my mission and tag line…

Body ideals, like everything else in pop culture, are a trend. As Tina Fey wrote in Bossypants,“Now every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits.” Rather than chase that preposterous laundry list of attributes, embrace what your momma gave you! And remember: The media’s idea of beauty is subjective and changes, but confidence is always in style.

My favorite is, of course, ’90s waif….


That’s all I wanted to look like when I was younger and my body couldn’t be the furthest from it — all those years of dieting trying to match a trend instead of just focusing on being the healthiest me I could be.

This was such a great reminder to just do me! Well, you.

You know what I mean!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I love this so much! I too tried to be a waif except it wasn’t in the 90s. From 2006-2009 I put so much effort into this and was just miserable! I’d rather be the 159 and STRONG I am now than the 129 I was!

    Is that a question? Then it needs a question mark…maybe?

      I interpret it as a statement. Do you! Be who you are nobody else. It’s not a question at all, but an affirmation of acceptance of oneself.

      Yup, Allison is right. It’s a statement not a question. You do YOU and I’ll do ME! :)
