#130: Don’t Try To Be Thin As Twiggy

At 13, I aspired have a figure like Twiggy’s — and I wasn’t far off, either. Twiggy and I were both built like, well, twigs, and keeping that thin was disgustingly effortless.

Well, things have changed, and even Twiggy isn’t immune from middle-aged spread. She limits her diet to one chocolate square at a time, she says, and “one pudding a month” or risks bloating up like every other over-40.

There goes the myth of the naturally thin person who stays that way forever. If even Twiggy porks up, what hope is there for the rest of us?

Extra non-diet tip: Don’t reference Twiggy in relation to thinness, weight loss, or modeling. Young people won’t have any idea who you’re talking about. Kate Moss, maybe. Doutzen or Agyness (born Laura) Deyn: Now you’re talking.

    Twiggy. Twiggy. Twiggy.
    How about Keira? She is a slender wench.

  2. Hi there!
    True.. If Twiggy stoutens, what happens to everyone else??? 🙂 I’m Natasha, and I’m with http://www.womenetcetera.com. I look forward to seeing you there.

    Twiggy is a porker by today’s standards. And who told her to wear those pants?

    Maybe I’m in the minority, but I am 21 and have no clue who those “young, hip” models are other than Kate Moss. She is gross, and Twiggy is great. (Also, teeny boppers would know her from ANTM)

  5. Twiggy is awesome, but so are Twix. Oh life, you cruel temptress. ;P
