#WorldWithoutDieting Take the Oath (With #Giveaway)


I have never been overweight, but that doesn't mean I don't or haven't had body image issues with myself. On the contrary.
Growing up, I always saw thin ladies on the television, in music videos, basically everywhere you went or looked. Then as a teen, I modeled for a couple of years. That created even more issues. Was I thin enough? Did I need to eat the day of a runway show or should I wait till after?? All these things were not healthy for my mind or body.


My daughter and me, 1999
Notice the food we are eating?

When I became a mother and aunt, I came to realize how much more important it is to not have those issues passed on. Unfortunately there is not enough 'Real Women' promotions for brands, even today, and my daughter still has issues with her figure. I use positive reinforcement. I think she is beautiful while she thinks she looks like a potato. It's hard as a parent to hear, and even harder to change her perception when media doesn't make it any easier. As a parent, you just want to ensure your daughter knows she is beautiful no matter the size or shape.

A recent survey commissioned by Multi-Grain Cheerios examining young women ages 10-17 revealed some compelling statistics:
  • 3 in 5 women have been on a diet
  • 52% of girls get their information about dieting and nutrition from family members
  • 1 in 5 girls under 18 is currently dieting
I consider diet to be a bad word. It has 'DIE' in it. That alone should be a hint it is a bad idea. I believe in healthy living which includes healthy eating, exercise and keeping the brain active with puzzles and books. Having a healthy lifestyle is better than being up and down with crash diets and practices.



Why don't you check out the World Without Dieting Oath. Take it, and pass it along to the women you know. Let's try to change how society view women and what is beautiful.

  2. I love this program! We, as women, need to change the way that we think about ourselves and others. We can be our own harshest critics and it needs to stop!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
