The squidge debate..

Am currentlly on a squidge removal regime, since summer is a coming, and choir tour is to Barcelona and I rather fancy acquiring a tan (since both previous tours have involved lots and lots of rain. Bear in mind this is not some watercress soup and leek diet, it's just healthy eating and regular visits to gym. But was talking to Siggy about this yesterday, and I was told off. Apparently, squidge is good. Now in winter it doesn't particularly bother me as 'tis covered up and keeps me warm, plus in winter I have a tendency to consume an inordinate number of jaffa cakes and fondant fancies. However come summer time, out of the woodwork (or somewhere) all these perfectly tanned toned slim beautiful females come. Hmph. So, this year, since am paying member of a gym, figured I might as well try and provide a bit of competition. I personally don't find my squidge particularly attractive–it's there and I can never seem to get rid of it. But is it actively a bad thing to try and get rid of it?!

  2. Here we go… rant coming on… actually no I'll do the ranting thing on my blog.

    1. Anna you don't have any "squidge" to loose
    2. Stick women are NOT in any way attractive. Though it is a good way to get me to come up, and say "let me buy you a decent meal, you clearly need it"
    3. Beauty comes from within not from some superficial outside. If you want to be masturbated over by a hoard of teenage boys then by all means do the magazine pin up thing, if you prefer real people then I suggest you don't worry at all. Look at Lorna, she's gorgeous and curvy.
    4. Yeah stop it. Proper rant coming…

  3. I didn't tell you off – I said I wasn't going to go into it again! Although I have told you off before. If you hate your squidge that much, then don't listen to other people who tell you off and go do it. All I've been trying to say is that in my experience, girls stress far too much about squidge and put themselves through what appear to be torturous diet and excercise regimes (well they'd be torturous to me anyway). The guys that I know really aren't bothered at all by a little bit of squidge. Many actually prefer a bit of squidge, in a soft warm and comforting sort of way. And it's much more "real" and "natural" than looking like a centrefold off of playboy. You of all people Miss Davies have no squidge to worry about anyway!

  4. Squidge is good. We likes it. Don't worry about them things that would tear all up one side if they reached up for something.

    They're not happy really, because no one is. Be who you are and be happy.

    That's not to say don't exercise because it's fun, apparently.

    Yay. I'm going to go and have some cake.

  5. mmm…jaffa cakes.

    The thing is, whether you like it or not there is a general perception that certain body shapes are more attractive than others. I will never look like, say, jennifer anniston in a bikini, because frankly I haven't got the genetics. I am relatively happy with my figure, but I feel self concious of it when I'm around slimmer people. I also feel happier generally if I'm feeling fitter and slimmer–I love the feeling after I've just been to the gym (especially when it's warm and I can walk back listening to happy music running my hand over bushes) and I am aware that my normal diet is pretty awful since I don't really do cooking. I just want, for once in my life to be able to walk along a beach in something suitably revealing and not worry (even though I currently cannot imagine that)

    What I mean is.. skinny females aside, is squidge actively a good thing, or does it merely increase the cuddle factor? (just in case I don't lose the squidge)

  6. "Squidge is good. We likes it."
    "Many actually prefer a bit of squidge"
    "if you prefer real people then I suggest you don't worry at all. Look at Lorna, she's gorgeous and curvy."

    Does this answer your question? :–)

  7. Anna.

    Yes, we all feel self–conscious around skinny women, but hey – they feel self–conscious when they're around us, because they don't have huge fuck off boobs and a bum J–Lo would be proud of (OK – you don't actually have anything approaching a J–Lo (read "big") bum, but I do) :)

    …I'd do you ;)
    …and I'm picky cos I'm a girl. Fact.

  8. You wouldn't want to look like J.A. in a Bikini. The only way to achieve that is to survive entirely on inhaling the fumes of food and considering Nicotine a food group. I don't know how accurate Tobacco being used as an appetite supressant is but and alarming number of ultra thin celebs seem to smoke.

    If you feel happier when slimmer that's fine, but you of all people have no reason to actively seek to loose weight. You have nothing to worry about in your figure. Squidge is a good thing, it makes you a real person not some waxwork that will snap if you hug them.

  9. Oh yes, forgot to mention that, Jennifer Anniston – deeply unattractive figure (and not much better face but anyway). Always thought Courtney Cox pre–weight loss was the fittest of Friends (by this I mean in the early shows, not when she was dressed up in a fat suit as a teenager!). Catherine Zeta Jones is about the fittest actress in Hollywood – and one of the curviest. Coincidence? I think not.

  10. Agreed on Courtney Cox of the three. But none of them scream "wow" to me. One of the prettiest celebs I can think of is Lexie from "Monarch of the Glen" – actress Dawn Steele. She's defs not a skinny Hollywood type.

  11. Bleurgh.. Doesn't matter what you say. After last nights overindulgence, I can't help but feel a little guilty. Still lab after 9 hours… moan…

    want chocolate, but don't want it, because I want to get rid of squidge.

    13 May 2005, 18:16

  12. Why ask for our opinion if it doesn't matter?!? Stop moaning and have some chocolate. You'll feel better for it :–)

    13 May 2005, 18:29

  13. It does matter to me!! I just reserve the right to ignore/override it! I've just had a particluarly stressful day–only just got home!!

    13 May 2005, 19:40

  14. :–( Hugs

    13 May 2005, 23:49

  15. Hmm… Bear Hug!

    14 May 2005, 18:51

  16. Hugs are great :)
