CNN published an recent article stating, “As nation gains, 'overweight' is relative.”
I wrote an article several years ago about the retail store Old Navy and their misleading size labels on clothing.
But, now more and more retailers are adding extra material to the waist line and labeling it a smaller size.
Why? To make you feel like you really aren’t as fat as you think you are.
Well thank you very much, retailers!
Who’s telling us the truth these days?
Let me ask you… does it make you feel good to know that your waist line is 40 but you fit into a size 4?
Who are they kidding? I believe it's a slap in the face to actually think by lying to consumers about the severity of their weight problem you won't hurt their feelings or self-confidence.
It's kind of like having a sheltered childhood. Parents think they're helping by keeping kids from the "dangers" of the world, but once they're out on their own, reality and shock set in.
The reality is that some people are fat and we need to do something solid and concrete, not shelter people from the truth!
If I were you, I would think twice before squeezing into those jeans and buying into the lies and deception of the retailers trying to sell you.
But, if living a lie is something you like, makes you feel good and you’ll worry about the consequences later, than by all means, be my guest.
Are you ready for a change?
