Why she makes us all feel a little better
You know we've all done it -- looked in the mirror and thought, "I wish I could lose 10 pounds" or "Maybe I should start going to the gym." After a couple kids, I know I need to do it. But this story about Lizzi Miller, a young woman feeling comfortable in her size 12-14 skin -- and the stir that her photo caused when it ran in Glamour magazine -- is a breath of fresh air. I know she's still young and all the insecurities of life may one day catch up to her, but it would be quite lovely if we all emulated this way of thinking. The photo revealed her tummy roll and women responded with a resounding, "YES!" To date, the mag has received more than 900 comments, most thankful that a real woman with a "real body" was used in a story.
So be healthy but be comfortable in your own skin, if only until the next fashion magazine comes out.
