First off, I can't think of to many celebrities that are 45 and have had 7 kids....actually none right off hand. Alot of celebrities are younger and/or have less children to stretch their bodies out or just wear them out by the days end.

I'll admit I will check out the trash magazines where info is listed about people's height, weight, clothes size and usually it just makes me realize how crazy the writer is. This Spring I was looking at some article about "BIG" celebrities who where proud of their curves. The smallest "BIG" size was a 6 or maybe an 8 (I think).
How in the heck did a size 6 or 8 become big? Boy, I would love to be a size 6 or 8 again!! But I guess I like going out for ice cream to much to be a size 6, and seeing as I work a low-paying regular job I can't afford a personal chef or diet food-delivery to my door.
Besides I'll assume that Marilyn Monroe was bigger then a size 6, and she was considered sexy. In some countries "big" ladies are the in thing. I guess only in hollywood women are supposed to look like they have some eating disorder.
No matter how pretty Katie Holmes, Kate Hudson, Nicole Ritchie, Rhiannon, (the list can go on) are....I don't follow them around 24/7 to see what they actually look like first thing in the morning without make-up or watch them go grocery shopping to see what they're eating. All I see is whatever the magazines want us to see, which isn't always good 100% of the time.
And believe me, I wouldn't trade places with any of the celebrities I mentioned above.

    I'm looking forward to the day when looking healthy is the new sexy. At whatever weight that might be.

    I know what your saying! They do not think you look good unless you are a size -2 pretty much now days. That is crazy! A size 6 is big. Wow then I guess I'm an elephant. I do not think I have ever been a size 6. Maybe in ummm second grade! Yeah the pictures do make me feel even fatter but yet I know they are taking everything to the extreme with them like you said we can not afford chefs and personal trainers. I think its just kind of gotten out of hand even worse these last few years. Look how many celebrities have eating disorders now. Isn't that some type of alarm?
