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.
Thanks for this message! Too many people, including me, get sucked into trying to look like that "perfect" model or other celebrity too often. Thanks for the reality check. I am 55 and I can do Tae-bo! I can lift weights! I can do cardio! Yes my body is an awesome machine just as it is.
Great article! So this morning I weighed and it was up, no big surprise after a Mother's day dinner that included 2 slices of Red Velvet cake! But I got dressed and looked in the mirror and thought, Dang, I look GOOD today! The pants fit loosely, the Polo shirt covered those little rolls, and I felt pretty fit despite those 2 extra lbs! I felt so good I made it to work 15 minutes early, ready to go! Enjoy today!!!

Dear Carrie, I agree one hundred percent! I am a natural girl and since living in Africa I am a bit distressed! African women hate their hair and the men are also trained to hate it! They wear fake hair additions and or wigs, and this is almost every woman! Actually I make it a point to tell each African woman wearing her own hair that she looks beautiful!
This was a Great Article! Im gona love my self the way i am and go from there! Im gona hit the hills later and im gona quit jumping on that scale two times a day ! Once a week is enough! Thank you, BONNIE
