I have a confession to make. I've never really struggled with my weight. I currently weigh about 133 and I would like it to be closer to 130 but I can still rock skinny jeans and tight shirts. I am between sizes 4 and 6. With the exception of being pregnant and post-partum, I've never been over 140. I love food but keeping small seems to be in my genes and naturally good eating habits. So...do I get to cast stones at all y'all bigger people out there? Do I have that right since I do exercise and am not overweight?
Breastfeeding was the easiest for me. I never experienced engorgement and both my kids latched perfectly from day 1. Everyone has seen the studies at this point that breastfeeding is best and I did it for a year with both my kids. Therefore it should be perfectly acceptable for me to look at other moms with disdain if I see them feeding their kid a bottle. Their kid probably won't even graduate high school without momma's milk that first year. I don't care if they can't lactate or their baby can't latch on.
What about debt? At what point do I get to tell other people what they're doing is wrong and I know better? When I'm debt free? When I have 1 million in retirement? When I make six figures? Does it count if my spouse makes six figures but not me? When I own a house? Just asking...
The blogosphere seems judgy lately so I just wanted to clarify a couple things here. At what point am I perfect enough to cast stones?
In my opinion, when you come from as fucked up a world as I have, you not only have the right never to cast stones but only to look for the hand extended giving you a lift rather than a stone in the face.
