    Thanks for your comment on my blog.

    I agree, the women are beautiful in those pictures.. though, yes, probably air brushed. Even the super thin models are airbrushed because, face it, cellulite is a fact of life for even thin women. Sigh. But it does create an impossible illusion of beauty, an idealization that cannot be found in reality.

    What to do about it? I think ultimately it takes more than not buying magazines--I certainly buy few enough magazines and those that I do buy don't really have a lot of images of skinny models (I buy mostly crafting magazines like Bead and Button). But it's nearly impossible to get away from the images; we see them on television, on the internet, while waiting in line at the grocery store. We need to be aware of the images and be proactive about defining beauty in a healthy way... and to try to teach our sons and daughters the same thing.

    Thank you so much for your support - I feel better!
    I've added the weights to the shoulders and arms workout. I can still feel my triceps today which is an emoticon feeling!
    There's no chest workout in the lean version yet but I'm looking forward to doing that. Isn't it fun?!
    Have a lovely day!
