Mindy Kaling Doesn't Want To Be Skinny

April 10, 2014 1 min read

Hilarious and fearless Mindy Kaling, the writer and comedienne behind The Mindy Project, said in a recent Vogue interview that she doesn’t want to be skinny. Aaaand nobody’s head exploded, so that’s good. (This is after all, as Jezebel put it: Vogue"Nobody Wants to See A Real Person on the Cover" Magazine). mindy-kaling1-300x194 Her exact words were:
“There’s a whole list of things I would probably change about myself. For example, I’m always trying to lose fifteen pounds. But I never need to be skinny. I don’t want to be skinny. I’m constantly in a state of self-improvement”
What an amazingly relatable way to look at weight loss. I completely agree with her outlook – you can promote loving your body and being body confident, but still leave room for improvement. PLUS I got Mindy Kaling in that “What Actor Should Play You In A Movie About Your Life quiz?” going around facebook, so, obviously, we’re practically the same person. mindykaling_ Another great sound bite from Mindy’s Vogue interview:
“I don’t want my tombstone to say, she hid her imperfections well on the red carpet.”
I think this viewpoint is exactly what I needed: I won’t try to be skinny, I’ll strive to be the best possible version of ME that I can be. While I’ll probably still yo-yo between insecurity and body-confidence, I’ll try to make the latter my everyday outlook.
