It just dawned on me that I never shared my post on my good friend JL Fields blog Stop Chasing Skinny with you. Stop Chasing Skinny explores the important subject of body image and getting beyond the scale or a number to find happiness.
For many of us it has been a life long journey to get to the point of worrying about being fit and healthy as opposed to being a slave to a number on a scale. After 45 years, I finally got there, in large part because of my then eight year old Daughter Camille. She made me realize what is really important.
JL, I admire you for bringing this important subject matter to light in a safe, community environment and look forward to fewer of us chasing skinny and more of us chasing a state of mind that is focused around health and wellness..
