September 17 2006 Body Image Newsletter


Some women love exercising, others don't: "I don't work out. If God had wanted us to bend over, He would have put diamonds on the floor." - Joan Rivers. This quote isn't really related to my recent Body Image articles; I just thought it was funny! :-)

Seriously: swimsuit advertising and air-brushed models of perfection not only aren't going away, they're becoming more prolific and graphic. How do we deal with them, especially in "women's" resources such as our own BellaOnline Body Image website? (especially if we're not into exercising and aren't perfectly shaped)...

I'd love to know what you think after reading "How to Live With Swimsuit Ads" http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art1496.asp Do you think I'm making excuses for the advertising industry?

And, did you know that people with a poor body image take fewer risks in life, and are more reluctant to embark on relationships with others? Read "How Your Body Image Affects Your Relationships"
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art31823.asp How you see yourself, and how you see others, can either bring you close to or draw you away from other people.

Visit http://www.bellaonline.com/site/bodyimage for even more great articles about Body Image. To participate in free, fun online discussions, this site has a community forum all about Body Image located here -

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email. I love hearing what you think! Feel free to pass this message along to family and friends, because we all could use a little inspiration, balance, and a healthier perspective on life...
