Miss Indiana's "Normal" Body

image

Look.  Since she competed on Sunday’s Miss USA Pageant, a lot of articles have been written about Mekayla Diehl’s bikini body.  You can google them and see the stories/stats/theories/etc. but this is all I have to say about the matter.

You are not your weight.  You are not better because of your weight or worse.

One thing I’ve learned on this journey is that there is no “common standard” when it comes to diet.  Between all the chefs, farmers, recovering anorexics, actors, food writers, and all that are in between who I talk to on a regular basis - nobody does it the same.  And every body is vastly different.  And the way we all feel about our bodies changes, daily, depending on what we eat.  

AND THERE IS NO NORMAL.  So why give that word power?
