If you read the magazines, watch movies or TV, or follow fashion (slavishly or otherwise) you'll know that weight is so much of a self-esteem issue that it's becoming a political (and paediatric) hot potato!
My friend, Imogen Lamport of Bespoke Imaging has weighed in to the discussion in her most recent newsletter.
Why for many of us is our self-esteem so wrapped up in our weight? I blame it on the media - we're constantly bombarded with images of the super skinny - and told how beautiful their bodies are - that we start thinking that something is wrong with us and our body is too fat (even though it's not), or the wrong shape.

I was so impressed I asked her for permission to put in on Pink Apple's website for reference for us all.
By the way, while you're there have a look at the rest of her site. There's heaps of terrific info. Clients that I've referred to her, have raved about her assistance. So all that freebie stuff she's got is right to the point!
