Body Love


So, instead of diving into the brownies or doing something else equally unhealthy yesterday, I turned on the tv and discovered a new-to-me show on Lifetime: How to Look Good Naked. Kali has mentioned it to me a few times but I never got around to watching. Well, it was perfect timing. What a positive, uplifting little show! I'll definitely be tuning in again.

There's a lot of "love your body" messages out there from the new Dove ads to an entire campaign and that's such a positive trend, I hope it continues. While I myself still want to lose some weight to be healthier and stronger, self-flagellation and body hatred is not the way to do it. I know this, of course, but it helps to have a reminder now & then.

I saw a commercial for this show the other day and I am looking forward to seeing it ~ I didn't know they were showing the older ones!
I think its about time they give real women a chance to show how beautiful they are instead of these stick thin models. I love the Dove ads, I would buy it but I just don't care much for their products!

Not much body love going on over here at Rosemary Cottage! My 50th birthday is upcoming in August -- and I just tried on a bunch of clothes and cleaned out the "unloved items" from my closet again. Useful work -- and those items can go on to Goodwill to bless someone else! Sigh. Trying to keep my appetite under control -- and move my unwilling flesh to do some walking -- just around the house! LOL!

Cat, you always bring out my inner sassiness, girlfriend! LOL! Thank ou for your kind words, you are too sweet!

Rapunzel said...

Lady Laurie, I use Dove soap for my Sweetie who has really sensitive skin but otherwise I don't care for their products, either. Great campaign, though! :-)

Rapunzel said...

(((Jan))), I know the feeling! I tore through my closet the other day and found so many cute things that don't fit anymore. *sigh* It's not like it would take a lot to get into them, 10 pounds would be a good start.

Rapunzel, Your new blog header is so gorgeous. Has that been there for a while and I've been oblivious? It is prefect.

PS. You're perfect too. Just the way you are.
