Health and Well-Being

Although this is over 6 minutes, I think it is a worthwhile view for those of us who struggle with body image and keeping our perspective. My favorite quote?

At 4:39 when she says, "If we could get people to focus more on their own health and well-being, I think everything would just become secondary to that."


Cheers to focusing on health and well-being in 2014. (And to keeping my butt off the scale and away from the darn measuring tape....)


  1. I think I've got past body image days. As long as I think I look okay, I'm fine with that. It's quite good to feel more relaxed with myself. There's a lot to be said for growing older.

  3. Health is a better goal than weight. My doc once told me that if your numbers (bp, cholesterol, sugar, etc) are good, than you weigh what you weigh. So I now focus on my numbers.

My blog sever will change at some point, but my blog will always be connected to my facebook page:
