Jill I was wondering if your friend is African American. With the name Shazza it sounds African American. Donít start flaming me people Iím asking for a reason. Not that anyone here would flame me. We seem to be a pretty good group.

The reason I ask is because the last job I worked at I was talking with a couple of women who were African American. We were talking about diets among other things and the one girl told me that they donít worry about weight like white women seem to. Now I donít know if this is true for all African American women as a matter of fact Iím sure itís not. But if it is an underlying cultural difference that may be why she feels more secure in her self and why itís not a big deal to her. Itís just a thought.

Shazza's mum was a beautiful fiesty irishwoman and her dad a devilishly dashing arab - resulting in Shazz having flaming red hair, bright green eyes and richly olive skintones to die for! However, her upbringing indeed was in an atmosphere of extreme cultural diversity, which I'm sure relates to her sense of self and can certainly be tied to Howie's idea of differing cultural attitudes and ideals.

It's a shame are culture does not promote self love as much as others. We all want to be healthy but it would be nice to like ourselfs as we are also.

I think it is sooo important to remember that we have to love our bodies each and everyday, even when we are trying to change them.

Let's be confident - we are sexy!
Let's be proud!
Let's love every bit of who we are.

Hating yourself does not speed up your weightloss.
