You say that for many years you have SEEN yourself as being overweight. What is this based on? Are you really overweight at all and if so how nuch?

You might be a little overweight, miz, but you're certainly not morbidly obese!

What kind of exercise do you do? How about eating...what kinds of foods do you like to eat? Do you eat regular meals every day? Do you drink plenty of water daily?

All those things will help you to keep your weight right for your body type. Not everybody is meant to be skinny as a rail. Some people have larger bone structures than other people. Twiggy might have been one heck of a model, but there wasn't anything wrong with Ava Gardner, either. Mae West was another who didn't have to be skinny to get noticed. ;o)

Exercise is the key to both losing the extra weight and to feeling better, hon. It's something you really need to do for yourself. Set up a certain time every day that you're going to exercise for 30 minutes. If you set a schedule, and make a deal with yourself, many times it's easier to make things work in your favor. :eek:)

Do you walk through the world with an existential trombone accompaniment of wah-wah-wahhhhhhh? The good news: you are not alone. Insecurity is universal.

Old and insecure, IE6 still popular in the enterprise by Paul Roberts August 18, 2010 Conventional wisdom has it that Microsoft's Internet Explorer Web browser is on the way out: succumbing to the death of thousand cuts administered by plucky rivals like Mozilla's Firefox, Google's Chrome and even Opera. But data from Web security firm zScaler shows that the Old Blue Lady of the Web is still a force among enterprise users and that IE6, the notoriously security plagued version, is the...

Thirty years on - the babies judged negatively by their mothers BPS Research Digest Monday, 15 March 2010 If a mother has a negative perception of her baby when it's just one month old, there's a strong possibility that same baby will have attachment problems as an adult, thirty or forty years later. That's the claim of a longitudinal study that recommends screening new mothers to see if they have a negative perception of their child, so that any necessary action can be taken to stop the...
