Ode to The Statue of Liberty

When I heard that it is the Statue of Liberty’s 125th birthday (I know how she feels), I decided to write my first blog.

I have always been in awe of Ms Liberty’s physical characteristics. (That’s the nutritionist talking.) She’s just so strong and so healthy and so perfectly proportioned. Even featured, truly physically attractive, but I especially love her arm.

Back in my Rhode Island office, I had a picture of the Statue of Liberty taped onto a mirror. I used her arm as a reference point for what an arm should look like. I figure that, if construction started in 1875, then there were no media (okay, photography was invented), but there were no bathroom scales and, seriously, how many people had mirrors?  And there was no processed food, and no super-abundance, and no energy-saving conveniences.  And that’s what the epitome of beauty looked like?  hmm-mm

I’d say the Statue of Liberty, has a BMI of 23-24, but who can say what’s under that dress, and as we all know, muscle-is-heavy.  But, really, her standard for beauty is no longer ‘in’.  How many media personalities have her arm?  None. Their BMIs seem to be 17-20. What a shame.

Either way, I hope that, going forward, you’ll remember the Statue of Liberty’s arm. I’m also glad I moved to New York City so I can be closer to her.

Question:  What’s your take on the Statue of Liberty’s arm?

  2. Hello Mary, I’m glad you decided to start a blog, I think it’s a fantastic way to keep up with you apart from your tweets!

    Also thought it was cute that you were trying to guesstimate the Statue of Liberty’s BMI! 😀 Yeah she is pretty hot, isn’t she – triceps and all.


  3. Great points!

    Off to work on my arm. Haul laundry to basement. Do fall clean up in yard. My in-house gym sure is handy.
