Other Information:
When I discovered Spark People I was living in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I was thrilled to find this site for so many reasons. I got to know people from all over the world. I also met Brazillians (honorary and native) who answered questions, gave me insight, and made living in Sao Paulo less stressful. I am originally from the midwest but now live in South Carolina.

Thanks for visiting my "Brazilian Style" blog! I agree that living in Brazil was amazing. Not a day goes by that I don't miss it. Mil saudades.

I think the lack of body shame varies depending upon the demographic - among the wealthy, cosmetic surgery is common. I remember a discussion with a group of teens that just about broke my heart. A perfectly beautiful girl of 15, whose 40-something year old mother had already had several plastic surgeries, was already planning her future body alterations. To their credit, her 4 classmates tried to talk her out of it.
