A Country Where Fat is Sexy??

I'm watching Oprah right now and there is a country in Africa called Mauritania. In this LOVE a full figured woman...the bigger you are, the better! There is no such thing as diet food and women actually go to great lengths to gain weight. There are actually products there that women purchase to help them increase their appetites. Female children are stuffed until they vomit and stuffed some more, just to ensure that they get as big and round as possible. While that's dangerous, I have to be honest, I would feel really great about my big booty and love handles over there. It would be great if Mauritania and the US could find a happy medium and just value a woman's body as it is...point. blank. period.

Hair Update: My 4 month locversary was on the first of the month. I had my retightening on the 3rd. My consultant washed my hair without braiding and banding and I have pretty much been cleared to not b&b anymore. I have also been cleared to use product in between washes to keep my hair from being so dry. I'm not sure what I'm going to get yet. Suggestions are welcome. I didn't take any pics because my hair looks pretty much the same as it did last month.
