TIP NO 71 –YOUR FIGURE
For many years now we have been brainwashed into thinking that skinny is beautiful just because we see and admire flat-chested, narrow-hipped models in fashion magazines. It is indeed nice to be slim, but skinny is not beautiful or attractive.
Gentlemen do NOT prefer scarecrows. A very thin woman may look well in clothes,but without them she doesn’t offer much to hold on to – is that maybe why some men prefer heavier women?
What is more important than being slim is to be well proportioned. If you wear a size 10 on the top and size 12 or 14 around the hips, exercise is the only thing that will correct this. Dieting alone will make you lose weight all over, where exercise will take off the bulk where you don’t need it.
And when getting older being thin is no advantage – because when the skin starts to sag and the bones begin to show a woman will certainly look older than she is. In moderation a few extra pounds will make you look younger and more feminine.

TIP NO. 33 – SHAPING UP.
As a reminder and incentive to lose the few pounds you might have gained over the winter months, I suggest you wear the ‘smaller clothes’ in your wardrobe.
I know from my own experience and from looking at my client’s wardrobes that we all have clothes that accommodate a few extra pounds – and then we have our ‘ideal weight clothes’ which we ignore when they hug us too tightly.
Now is the time to get out the latter and start wearing them, because nothing helps you keep your appetite in check as much as a tight waistband. If it pinches long and hard enough, you will eat less and soon fit into it comfortable.
See you tomorrow
