Hi, y'all! My name is Meg O. I blog over at O. is Me! If you like makeup, babies, and random crap, you might like my blog. So, come on by and say hi! I'm taking over Kristen's blog today. Kristen is one of my favorite reads. She keeps it raw and real and, I gotta be honest, I love living vicariously through her. All that traveling and living it up! She kind of reminds me of a younger, blonder, single version of myself. But alas, here I am. Older (but still in my twenties), less blonde, married and a mom.
So, Kristen and I are both from Houston and apparently I stole her second child's name. I told her she could still name her second born Kennedy, but I mean, let's face it. This doll is one in a million.
Kristen, you might think this is kind of strange, but we have a lot more in common than you think. Since you started posting about your weightloss journey and your amazing results, I have stared at pictures at your almost nekkid body and realize you and I have the exact same body type.
Yep, you and I are blessed with what I refer to as "Texas Toast."
Meg's Definition: A thick booty, reminiscent of the food of the same name. a.k.a. "Little in the middle but you got much back."
Let me show you some examples.
I was christened this nickname of "Texas Toast" in college. I embraced it, yo. People have even called my butt "amazing." I used to feel so self-conscious about it and think that I should make it disappear. But guess what? You can't change your body type, unless you undergo major plastic surgery. I will never be one of those girls with chicken legs and a tiny tush. Even at my lowest weight and being in shape, my butt and thighs are thick and juicy. It has taken me a long time to really understand my body type and realize that there are certain things that go along with having a Texas Toast.
When you've got a Texas Toast, you probably know:
- Your pants will always be bigger in the waist.
- You gain weight in your butt and thighs first, and lose weight there last.
- If you get pregnant, you bet your sweet toast you will gain there.
- Dressing your toast appropriately involves a lot of tight tops and flattering pants. High waists look good on you if you have a long torso.
- You don't do pants with bulgy pockets on the front.
- Shirts that have an empire waist and flowy tunics may make you look bigger.
My best advice to you? Embrace that Toast. Chances are it's going to stick with you for a while. I don't think there's anything better looking than a woman who is in shape with a nice round booty. Don't let yourself get discouraged if that butt looks a little lumpy when you are doing everything right. Keep up your exercise and healthy eating habits. Understand how to dress your body. Yes, we always have room to improve ourselves, but don't get bent out of shape if you aren't what magazines and the media tells us to be - stick thin everywhere. Your body is beautiful!
I am going to close this by quoting Sir Mix-A-Lot again."So Cosmo says you're fat, well I ain't down with that!"
"Shake that healthy butt!"
