Up and At ‘Em

in All Posts

After a very restful (ha!) night, I am up and ready to go!  Tune into The Today Show at 8:35 AM EST to see me and Meredith chat all things Operation Beautiful book.  In the meantime, here are some guest posts from a few of the wonderful people who made a movement like Operation Beautiful possible.

 

Check out today’s stop on the Operation Beautiful Virtual Book Tour!

ob_2_large2

Today’s Virtual Book Tour stop is at That Wife. I really love That Wife because Jenna is SO different from me, but I feel like we’d still get a long.  A LDS stay-at-home mom in her early 20’s, Jenna is never afraid to tackle hard topics and promote discussion on her blog.  Stop by her blog to read what Jenna thinks about hiding behind the camera as she comes to term with her post-baby post. And she’s giving away a copy of the book!

 Baby Wearin Love

In honor of the OB Book Release, women (and men) all over America and the world are submitting guest posts describing their own experiences, struggles, and triumphs over body image issues.  To learn how to participate, check out this page.

    I’m back! (From Comment #31) After watching the segment I just have to say THANK YOU! I was almost felt on the verge of tears watching the segment because the Operation Beautiful message hits so close to home for me. I’ve spent the last two years jumping between obsessing over weight/calories, restricting like crazy, and binging as my only tool to deal with emotions. The cycle completely destroyed my self-esteem over time, and I’m just now starting to rise from the ashes and take back my body/mind from my disordered past. Thank you thank you thank you for starting a movement to raise women up! You are doing a truly inspirational, BEAUTIFUL thing!

This sounds weird, I read your blog all the time but it is the first time I’ve heard your voice and during all the readings I never once thought about what your voice sounds like. Best wishes with the rest of the book publicity tour and I hope you get to do some fun stuff in New York.

    Congrats! You did a great job! I have been reading your blog forever even though I don’t have a blog of my own. I broke our family’s no-TV-in-the-morning tradition to watch you on the air with Meredith. My eyes welled up with tears, I was so proud of your for pursuing your dreams and getting to where you are now! Thanks for inspiring all of us and creating such a great resource :)

    I pre-ordered your book from Amazon and it say’s it will be here today! I bought it for my mom who I love, but has always “fat talker”. I know how it affected me and now I see her projecting it on my 13 year old niece that struggles with being overweight. I want to try to open her eyes to how life changing positive reinforcement can be before my newborn daughter is old enough to understand her.

    PS- you did awesome on the Today show. Can’t wait to hear you on Cock’s with P, he’s so funny! Please post pic’s I’ve always wondered what he looks like!

    I think you are wonderful! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!I was so bummed I couldn’t watch you live. I just watched your TV segment and read about your day – I am so happy and excited for you!

    You’ve helped to reshape my life and habits thru this blog.

    My little cousin has been battling an eatting disorder (been to rehab and all) I think this book will be helpful to her and her family.

    Good job in the interview! I put up a post-it note in the bathroom at my gym, when I left it I felt so happy. After my workout I came back in to see if it was there and it wasn’t. It was in the trash :(. Oh well, it made me feel good doing it and even if the person throwing it in the trash didn’t appreciate it, hopefully someone did!!
