Time to Be Honest, People — 18 Comments

  1. Yes! Thank you for this honest and amazing post. I applaud you in your efforts to get to the bottom of how your perfectionistic tendencies relate to how you view and treat your body. Lady, you are an inspiration to ME. I’m so glad we are encouraging each other.

  2. You brave and amazing for being so open and honest about where you are right now. I love your doctor and I hurt for you because I understand a lot of it. I may not have a history with alcoholism, but I know feeling uncomfortable in my own skin and being frustrated with myself. Hugs to you. Maybe I need to look into Rhea’s Operation Rad Bod, too… thanks for the inspiration, as you give it out freely 🙂

  4. I don’t think you give Sly enough credit. I mean, he was running around in a t-shirt in 30 degree weather for the first Rambo movie for goodness sake, what more could you possibly ask for?!

    On a side note, this made me cry. I have my own “emergency hanky” in every pocket/purse/glove compartment but for different reasons. I wish I had something helpful to say but if I did I wouldn’t be in waterproof mascara right now. Good luck 🙂

    • It’s his voice, Stacie – it just grates on me. And when I see his face, I can hear him talking…
      And thank you. I’m sorry I made you cry too, but it was inadvertent.
      Operation Rad Bod is so far the best thing I could have done for myself.

  5. The not being like that outside of LA thing is so true. When I was in South Carolina, I noticed that the women looked way more average, and make-up was limited. On my last day, when I was waiting at my plane’s gate for the return to LA, I was suddenly surrounded by stick thin, fashionable women with immaculate hair and make-up. I became instantly sad. We are definitely surrounded by a society that is full of extremes. I liked what your doctor said about being gracious, and I am going to look into Rhea’s post too, ’cause along with you, I’m finding that it’s very hard to accept myself. You and I could start a revolution here! Let’s do this! 🙂

    • It’s so hard NOT to be affected by the culture in which you’re immersed. Definitely read Rhea’s post – it gave me a healthier perspective from which to view myself and those around me.
      Operation Rad Bod coming to the Southland!

  7. What a wonderful post and something every woman can relate to. You are so special to me & loved by so many just the way you are!

    I have a good verse for you and your “rad bod” to live by!

    2 Corinthians 9:8
    “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all you need, you will abound in every good work.”
