Guess what? It's Normal to Kvetch

To begin: A rant.
One of the things I HATE being told is, "Lose weight until you think you look good." That is probably the absolute DUMBEST thing to tell a woman in her mid-twenties. Does anyone here really, truly love everything about their body, and has zero complaints? Are there any women out there who think their body is, well, perfect?!
Give me a break people. To tell a woman to lose weight until she completely happy with the way she looks is nothing short of moronic. We all have things with our body, a pinch of fat here or there, yada yada. Some things we can control, some things we can't. Some of us, who are young and want to have more children some day, require a higher body fat percentage than others.
The point is, it is normal not to be absolutely in love with your bod. It is OK to say, "Grr, why do I have this adipose (fat) on my belly?" We shouldn't obsess, but that doesn't mean we can't kvetch once in a while.
So to all my ladies out there, holla!!
PS. Kvetch is a yiddish word. It means complain. Try it in a sentence today!
