Bravo, Stephanie. Your courage and honesty are so inspiring. I remember how I felt the first time I put my weight (my true weight, not my fantasy weight) and size on my blog---my thoughts were very similar to your own. And yet it felt so freeing, to be honest, to share myself with the world. Like you, I write about helping women love their bodies. I have days when I feel like a traitor, too, when I wonder, "Who am I to be helping women about this???" But, let's remember: we can love our bodies, and inspire other women to love their bodies, even when we aren't in looooove with our bodies. It is our very imperfection that connects us to other women; they are inspired by our examples because we do stumble and fall, not in spite of stumbling and falling. I also like to remember that the voice that chides me, berates me, that makes me anxious/fearful/questioning/doubtful of myself? That voice is my ego, not my spirit. That voice that chides you for not being perfect? That is not your spirit, either. Listen to your spirit, dear. You have a beautiful one. In sisterhood, Karly Pitman

I also give Eckhart Tolle a thumbs up. The Power of Now was integral in my life several years ago when I was trying to heal my depression, negative body image, and low self esteem. You can apply his message to any area of your life, including, yes learning to love your body. I think Oprah's class will greatly impact our consciousness in a positive way. Best, Karly Pitman
