In a survey of girls 9 and 10 years old, 40% have tried to lose weight, according to an ongoing study funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (USA Today, 1996).
One author reports that at age thirteen, 53% of American girls are "unhappy with their bodies." This grows to 78% by the time girls reach seventeen (Brumberg, 1997).
It's just plain sad.
On a lighter note, I went to the bins yesterday with Lillie and her stepmom Jenny and I bought a whole bag of 80'sness. Though, that swimsuit is actually from a different thrift store. Haha.
But anyway yeah, lots of new clothes for me and the LABYRINTH SOUNDTRACK. (On vinyl of course.) Yeahyeahyeah.
Oh and yesterday I beat my record for views and got 4002 in one day, and like, 203 of both comments and favorites. Thankyouthankyouthankyou! :)
