    You read that article and think it's absolutely true. So you agree with #3.

    I think that tells us all we need to know about you. Yeah, you jelly.

    Meh. Don't like what I post, either don't read it or unfriend me. It's my page and I'll post what I see fit.

    And the woman that the author thinks is "gross" in that article....10/10 WB.

    I thought the same thing.

    "These people most likely have naturally fit bodies, but because of their obsessive exercise and diet habits, have become gurus of “fit” and therefore have become “famous” on social media."

    I guess her reasoning on why she doesn't look as good as the people she's talking about is that they were just born naturally fit & didn't have to put any hard work into their "fit" physiques.

    So many thoughts come to my mind reading this article. Jealous, bitter, miserable, etc.

    Don't hate on people because they have a different lifestyle than you and are proud of it.

    The so-called author of that piece is a class of 2012 graduate ... with a communications degree who now uses it to fill the internet with more banality. I'd kick my kid's *kitten* if she wasted tuition like that.

    Writer is incredibly jealous. Calling that woman flexing gross? Posting up work outs anyone can do? Then why aren't you doing them? Meal shaming? Horrible.

    And neon is ducking awesome.

    I won't be changing any of my behavoir to placate this jealousy.

    Pure. Raw. Envy.

    If you don't like it, don't look at it.

    I think the author is probably trying to be sarcastic and funny (not very imho) and the persons who got hit from the rock that she threw into the crowd are understandably a bit tetchy. That said, her ordinary people/rockstars comment was *****y, as was her calling the muscular woman 'gross'.

    Can I ask a serious question though? Why is her not finding the muscular woman attractive evidence of her being jealous? I personally don't think she is jealous of her. I think she has been socialized to believe that muscular women are not attractive and masculine, and she's made her assessment based on this. I don't think this equates to jealousy at all...more a difference in preferences, justifiable/reasonable or not.

    Kayla Inglima

    Kayla is an intellectual, comical, organized mess. She believes that filters are only for coffee & Instagram - hence she says what is on her mind at all times. She likes sushi and wine and being cynical while remaining a likable human. Graduating from Monmouth University in New Jersey, she now seems to put that Communication degree to good use. Find her on the Elite Daily "Who We Are" page, Facebook, Twitter and, most importantly, Instagram (@kayglee), where she has a variety of awesome photos of food and other shenanigans.
  • I love chicken breast and asparagus. I prep it on Sunday and eat it M-F.
    I also love to procreate with hotties from the gym, call me crazy I guess.
