Beauty in all shapes and sizes

I abhor reality tv. It is the opposite of real; engineered artificiality masquerading as reality is worse then just admitting that you made it all up. However, I am in love with a new show on Lifetime. How to Look Good Naked has a wonderful aim: help women to see themselves as they truly are and get out of the negative tailspin that a lifetime of dieting and obsession has brought on. I don't necessarily agree with everything they say, but I do think that this is something that would benefit any woman, no matter what their size. Some of us have been dealing with this for our entire post-puberty lives, and some (like my beloved sister Amy) have only had to really deal with it post-child birth. Either way, let me know what you think.

Don't have cable, but I few clips of the show on the morning news shows. It did look very good! Gen
