Good article Report
One of the conditions I need to subvert and dispose of is thinking in terms of me being overweight rather than thinking of the me who wears my body. Body image is more than a mental picture, it is the way one walks through doorways, goes up stairs, approaches a group of people, sitting at a table, and more. It is the process that is trouble whether or not one is thinly or thickly, so to speak.

That process cannot be helped by "Happy-Happy-Walmart" chants and such. I'm glad this article dealt more realistically with the basic "fatitudes". And just to be sure, the "Be-fatitudes" can be found in the Bible right next to the verse about "God helps those who help themselves". hahaha

Let us expose fables for what they are. Thanks. Report
Great article. It's amazing how obesity is best addressed first from within and by our attitudes and mental mind set. Thank you. This has been very helpful! Report
Oh, I can really relate to the "all or nothing" attitude. As hard as I try not to have it, it still manages to creep out of the closet. Report
