There was another fine quote from Charlotte Church today in an article at a Welsh Internet news source. Again, the interview as a whole is not really appropriate to be posted here, but the quote is interesting --

"[Charlotte] likes her fuller figure and adds: "I just love food and hate the gym and it seems to be a pretty curvy combination.'"

It's SO nice to have a celebrity come out and say that she *loves* food and *hates* the gym, directly and without any wishy-washiness or guilt. Maybe if more celebrities made pronouncements like this, there wouldn't be such a stigma about weight in our society.

The goal is always to find more classy and less vulgar ways to talk about these matters, and I think the way she phrases her comment -- "a pretty curvy combination" -- is an example of good size-positive discourse.
