Kelly Clarkson had her baby about a month after I had mine. Guess what? I am struggling to lose weight, keep my sanity and do my money making work all while loving up on this new creature that I am simply obsessed with. This is how I percieve Kelly Clarkson's likely viewing things. To the people who say "she didn't just have the baby, she had the baby 9 months ago", ummm yeah well the extra 30-40 pounds don't simply fall off and some of us aren't blessed with the genes to support no weight gain at all. You have to work hard, eat right and even then, you might lose 4 oz... I should know, I'm on Weight Watchers, some weeks I am busting my ass and lose nothing. I have also been breast feeding which totally effs with your body's willingness to shed the stubborn pounds and also makes you ravenous at times. I'm not making excuses, I am just stating a personal experience. Long story short, if a lot of new mothers waited until they were in their "skinny jeans" to go out into public, we would be waiting a long time. It's effing hard and being a new mother is life changing in more ways than can be covered in this post. Kelly is out there promoting a new album, which is likely awesome, killing it.
Kelly Clarkson is AMAZINGLY talented. She is far more talented than any of the sad and pathetic people who hide behind their computers and smartphones, taking aim at a woman who is yes, larger than she was when we first met her 10+ years ago. Does it matter though? Should we be looking at people in terms of their appearance rather than the talent or mad skillz that they possess? I think that Kelly Clarkson looks SO happy. Happiness is the point. Don't we all want to be happy? Trouble is, when someone is unhappy, often misery loves company.
What Kelly is doing is admirable. She is going out there, getting what she wants and rocking it. What she is doing is setting a good example for her daughter. She is now in charge of a sweet, young baby girl growing up in a world that can be cruel and unnecessarily rude at times. What do you do? You show baby girl that being proud of who you are, standing up for yourself and getting your happy are what is important. Screw the haters, live your life. Kelly Clarkson, you go girl.
