Please join me on 01/12/2009 as I welcome Sarah Maria Body Image Expert. Have you had these conversations with yourself? I'm not thin enough, so I'm going starve myselves. I'm not toned enough, so I will exercise to exhaustion. I'm not healthy enough, so I will avoid all pleasurable food in favor of alfalfa sprouts. And I'm not beautiful enough, so I keep myself apart from others and the love they might offer. In a culture that worships thin, young, fit, and perfect, few of us can measure up. And our obsession with what we are not has extinguished the joy and vibrancy of who we are. "There is a way out," says Sarah Maria of Break Free Beauty. "It is possible to love and respect your body, to be at peace with your natural urges, and not live in constant fear of gaining weight or growing old. I know the path to befriending the body is not easy. It is painful and difficult, and at times you may feel it is hopeless. But I assure you that it is possible." - Sarah Maria
