She even joined Weight Watchers in an attempt to fit back into her pre-baby jeans. Aside from dieting, Miranda had to work out in order to maintain her physique, unlike the other gals who considered shoe shopping and sex their routine cardio.
And the woman ate! She even refused to let the girls throw her a baby shower unless fried chicken would be served. She was effortlessly beautiful just the same. When the chip exposes itself, so does our inner Miranda. Thinking pessimistically is practical, and sometimes, logic just wins.
Never would the other gals have dreamt of stepping off the island, let alone for most of them, stepping out of the Upper East Side. It was with this same practicality that Miranda left her corporate law firm to join a smaller office so that she could maintain a better work-life balance. Why is it that when Carrie ran into Aidan or Big, she always looked flawless and generally handled herself well? She is the irritating exception because as Murphy's Law would have it, running into an ex is essentially a momentary manifestation of all the nightmares we've ever had.
She was firm but fair and opinionated but non-judgmental. And who could forget when she gave Carrie the much-needed Season 3 Big wakeup call that all of us at home were frustratingly waiting for the entire season? Most of us have been hurt in the past-through heart wrenching breakups, infidelity or casual hookups gone awry.
Miranda at times let the fear of relationship failure stifle her: She had moments of deep insecurity to which we all can relate. Miranda completely rejected the thought that the hot guy at the gym saw her as sexy.
Cute she could accept, but the thought of being viewed in terms of raw sex appeal made her uncomfortable. A similar insecurity met Miranda when she struggled to immediately lose the baby weight. She was a killer in the courtroom, a fighter at the gym, a provider for her family and a fiercely loyal friend. Carrie, Sam and Charlotte were her soul mates—the ones that softened her hard edges, made her feel beautiful and helped her risk it all for love.
