Has anyone seen this show?
I know, I know, it sounds HORRIBLE, but it's really a great show. It's all about re-doing someone's perspective of how they see themselves and it's incredibly effective. For the first show, they took a slightly overweight girl in her twenties who had struggled with her weight all her life. At the beginning of the show, she's in tears as she views herself in front of a three-way mirror, and by the end, after several perception changing exercises, she is loving what she's got and vowing to make it better. I thought it was fabulous.
And it's not just about women who struggle with their weight. Some of the women are teeny tiny but still have their own body issues and this show helps them realize the power in their bodies and turns them from body haters to body lovers. It's quite empowering.
The show is hosted by Carson Kressley who may drive some people INSANE but I find him hilarious. He's funny, hysterical, and always very sincere which is what a women needs when standing in a mirror in her bra and panties. And he's gay, so no worries.
As someone who has ALWAYS been envious of thin thighs and small hips, it made me realize that even those WITH thin thighs and small hips struggle and believe it or not, some of my own body perceptions have started to change.
Which is miraculous at this point because when your body currently looks like you accidentally swallowed a VW Bug, that's saying something.
Check it out and tell me what you think.
