I agree. I live in Southern California (San Diego), where everyone, it seems, is thin and beautiful. And if they aren't, EVERYONE has an opinion about it that they don't mind sharing!
I grew up here, so I never realized that there was any other way to be. Then I lived in London for a year (still at 195 pounds) and I never felt so normal and unremarkable in my life. I was still bigger than the average English woman both in height and weight, but no one made it their business. I moved back here and was slapped in the face with it, and I've been fighting it ever since. That judgmental, severe voice was trained into me at a young age, and I realize that I unconsciously judge myself the way I have been judged by others (trust me, middle school and high school were harsh).
It's harsh and painful to be a "civilian" in this part of the country. I can't imagine the **** that is being a celebrity.
