Operation beautiful ... join

...I found this on Carly's blog. It spoke volumes to me. I struggle with my self esteem and beauty or lack of. It makes me anxious that people think less of me.

I feel ugly and very self conscious about my appearance due to the NF and a turn in my eye though not so much my weight as it is the one area I can control.
I know the narrow definiton of beauty as per the fashion industry and media is not one size fits all. My head tells me it doesn't matter but ...

visit www.OperationBeautiful.com to read the latest notes .

I am going to do this ...today in the ladies toilets at church playgroup ;).
To all my beautiful online friends

Great video. I love the post-it notes on the slim fast shakes.

I wish my family would watch it and LEARN something from it.

They practically worship thinness. When I'm with them there's so much talk about dieting, fat grams, calories, etc.

Enthusiastic praise is given to those who have lost weight. "You're so skinny!"

I once tried sending something like this to them.

They ignored it.

It would really be great if we could all concentrate more on INNER beauty.

Ifeel a bit ignorant as I don't know what NF stands for, and am now worried I haven't been paying enough attention !

That video made me cry though - this is something I will do, I like it, it is a GOOD THING.
