Feel Better About Yourself Today

Ladies, how many times have you gone through the supermarket checkout and seen those magazines lining the lanes with the faces of beautiful young women with hard bodies and super taut skin on the cover and left the store feeling better about yourself? Well, gals, this one's for you!I don't usually buy tabloids because I figure 99% of what's in there is a lie anyway, but when something makes you feel this good, I say go for it. Drop that $3.49. Believe that lie.

Now I know what you're going to say, these pictures are probably Photoshopped, these gals don't really look this bad.

By the same token, do you tell yourself that the 21 year old babe with the muscular six pack on the cover of Women's Fitness has probably been Photoshopped? Maybe. But does that make you feel any less fat as you're pushing your cart full of beer and potato chips past that breast augmented chickie staring back at you?

So I did it! Shame on me for buying that tabloid! Then I brought it home and opened it and, by golly, I am going bathing suit shopping today. I feel great!


  1. thanks!! i feel perfectly ready for swimsuit season now!!!!

  2. Oh, I so wanted to open up this issue at Kroger yesterday. Who is the one with the covered up face on the front? I think I will buy a thong bikini this year. (okay, no I won't)

  3. Hey there Kim!

    WOW thanks for posting that...I don't feel quite as bad now....but no bikini for me. LOL

    Well...I am new to SITS and thought I would take a little time today and visit some blogs. I am enjoying it very much!
    I love your dogs...Winifred looks a little like my Joey.

    Hey we have something in common....I am married to an ultrapatient man too! Actually after reading your profile I notice we have a lot in common.

    Anyway...I hope we can get to know each other better.

    Have a wonderful day!

  4. I feel much better about myself!

  5. I was tempted to buy this one. (I have in the past bought the ones with these titles...and yes I sheepishly do enjoy them:)

    I do feel bad for the women featured though. Tough freakin day in the tabloids...ouch!

  6. I have just nominated you to receive the “When Life Gives You Lemons” blog award. You can claim it on my blog. :)

  7. You go girl!
    I'll stay in my back yard on the farm in my three piece :)

  8. ok then, feeling old at 46 is getting better everyday, thanks for that one!

  9. Oh, I feel so much better about myself. Thank you.

  10. Good post. Bathing suit drama over here...should have thought about this.


If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. No need to point out my mistakes, I have family for that.
