Let Cupid Take Aim at You

I saw my shadow this morning whilst jogging and I was shocked to see my 'side love handles' in the shadow!! I felt very despondent most of the day thinking that I was doing the wrong exercises all along. But thanks to all the comments I have read tonight. It has made me realize that some of these pictures we admire all day are 'not real' and there is nothing wrong with my body. One day at a time . Thank you.

Fantastic article. I really needed this today. Thanks ever so much.
Thank you for the reminder that what we see as "role models" in the media is not real. Recently saw an article about what women do to prepare to walk the red carpet - not eat for days???? And then there is photo editing. I can barely look at a magazine without scrutinizing the body lines and chuckling over the Scarlet O'Hara waistlines (not!)
Amen to this article and most of the comments! Think about what your body can DO -- I can dance, I can exercise, I can hike in the hills. Eat for nutrition and to be good to your body and weight loss will follow **if** you need to lose weight in the first place. Maybe your weight is fine just the way it is even if you're not rail-thin.
Good point that most models aren't even real any more.
