Stand-up comic Erin Keaney is a far braver woman than I, and I think she may be my hero right now. The 43-year-old mom of two recently uploaded her hilarious “Muffin Top” video to YouTube to preach about body acceptance.
I love when people can accept their flaws -- perceived or real -- and chose to laugh at them. Let’s face it, most of us, especially us mamas, have a little bit of a muffin top going on. Spanx wouldn’t be a thing if we didn’t.
But it’s just part of having a life that involves more than doing 500 crunches a day and abstaining from cake. We live, we laugh, we love, we make babies, and we love bacon.
So what if there’s a little flabbiness in the midsection at 40? Embrace it. Love your body. Don’t let the you from 10 years in the future want to reach through time and space to punch you in the neck for thinking you’re fat.
You’re fine. Or as Erin raps, "Your're a mutha fuckin' warrior who likes to eat cake."
Damn straight. Now someone please pass the cake.
Would you show off your naked muffin top in public?
