Description: 

Julie blogs with her whole heart. She only writes when she has something worthwhile to share, not just for the sake of posting. This piece is something ALL WOMEN can relate to--size. How many of us look at the tags inside our jeans and use that number to determine our self worth? And how many clothing companies are taking advantage of us and preying upon our weaknesses by tweaking sizes? Here, Julie suggests we ditch the numbers in favor of a little humor seasoned with truth. The tag in her pants, instead of a size 6 or an "L", reads "I often eat healthfully. Sometimes I eat cake."
