Fluffy Girl Jeer.....

Paul M. Kramer will be released a self published book to encourage young girls to diet.


As if young girls don't have enough reasons to come home and cry themselves to sleep about the way they look............NOW WE HAVE A BOOK.The description of the book is;

"This book is about a 14 year old girl who goes on a diet and is transformed from being extremely overweight and insecure to a normal sized girl who becomes the school soccer star. Through time, exercise and hard work, Maggie becomes more and more confident and develops a positive self image."

Apparently Mr. Kramer thinks its acceptable to pick on little girls?

My question is who is to say that young chubby girls can't play soccer and be secure about their beauty?Why can't plus size women be confident and have positive self image?WHAT IS NORMAL SIZE?
Am I an advocate for childhood obesity? NO
But I am the little girl who is beautiful,physically active,and loves herself despite her extra fluff.


I don't know what part Im more disguested by, the fact that I know some parents are going to buy their daughter this garbage which could lower her esteem even more OR that this book was written by a man who has NEVER been a 8-12 yrs old girl(his target market).

Am I challenging his right to express his concerns for the health of our young children?NO
But sitting behind a computer targeting young girls is NOT helping! Why not start a camp?A sport league? Something to BE THE CHANGE.

Lastly.....Im wondering why girls were the target,and not young boys?
But what do I know,Im just a fluffy girl trapped in the midwest.....

  1. i think that this could be a smart way to motivate younger girls and make them more aware of the health choices in life...there are many times where i wish i had more guidance in that department instead of people watching me make unhealthy decisions

  2. Funny because I think he is picking on prepubesent girls to make them fit in societies of beauty.

    There are other ways for this to be done,writing a book is not being proactive.

  3. I truely hope that man doesnt have any daughters!!! There is nothing wrong with a little girl being confident within herself! A childs genetics may be the cause of her size, not poor diet or lack of exercise! Beauty comes in all shapes, forms and sizes!!! Not a size 00!!! It's funny that so many people focus on childhood obesity, but no one has a care in the world for childhood eating disorders and the lifelong effects that come along with them!
