Love Your Body Day
Today is the 15th annual Love Your Body Day, a campaign started by N.O. W. (The National Organization of Women).
In Dr. Deah’s Hollywood every day would be LYBD, but starting with one day is a great idea. Join me in taking one day off from negative thoughts about your miraculous body and indulging in some self-appreciation! Here is a wonderful collection of blogs written by a variety of writers for About Curves’ fundraiser for N.O.W. Enjoy!

I have been asked by the most amazing Ragen Chastain to be available as a contact person for the Change.org petition that Ragen initiated protesting the whittling down of Minnie Mouse and the deleterious effects and harmful message it is sending to children.

For those of you who are members of Ellen Shuman’s A Weigh Out Program MY teleseminar with Ellen is now available! A 45 minute interview where Ellen and I discuss a life free from compulsive and binge eating, dieting, and body hate. If you are not a member, you may sign up for a free 3 week trial. I did not receive any financial compensation for spreading the word about Ms Shuman’s program but I love her work and the interview we did was a kick! And it turns out that she and I were in the SAME HOMEROOM in High School! What are the odds???
Do I sound like Al Franken??
Til next time!
