Once upon a time in the lush paradise of the Caribbean island of Barbados, a photographer, mother, nerd, gamer decided to blog about… everything.
Caution: This post contains lots of pictures of me in a bikini.
I Google everything— although these days Google is irritating me with their invasive policies—and my dirty secret is that I sometimes Google celebrity weights, because you know, I want to know what 120lbs on 5’3″ frame would look like. This week I have been obsessed with my own weight as I have gained several pounds and so I have been Googling celebrities who I think should weigh about the same as I do.
Who tell me do dat?
The madness follows…
I have used photos of my own body because I know what size I am and I can verify my own weight.
Since I know my own weight and height let’s compare things that are known to…the patently crazy things that Hollywood would have us believe.
Here I am at 5’3 (160cm) weighing in at 116lbs (I was actually ill and had lost tons of weight)
Right, so according to Hollywood people Alicia is 3 inches taller than me, weighs a mere six pounds more and yet…
Here I am four months after giving birth to my son with 141 lbs on my 5′ 3″ frame, allegedly 19lbs heavier than Alicia in that image… still looking smaller than Alicia (who looks hot)
Now here is Paula Patton who it is reported carries a mere 115lbs on her 5′ 4″
and here I am carrying 120 lbs on my 5″3′ frame
Beyoncé who allegedly weighs in at 128lbs on her 5′ 3″ frame
Me carrying 125lbs on my 5’3″ frame
and here is Christina Aguilera who is reported to weigh 140 lbs on her 5’1″ frame… No National Enquirer, I don”t believe she is 175lbs either.
Nicki Minaj who allegedly weighs 140 lbs and stands at 5’4″
And here I am with 133lbs on my frame, taken today.
conclusion DO NOT Google celebrity weights. If you don’t already have a complex these lies will give you one.
Don’t compare yourself to the lies that Hollywood is selling.
