if you are a regular reader of my blog, you know I sometimes talk about how women shouldn't obsess about their weight and think they should emulate these skinny models who look like they need a meal. One of my favorite lines is real women have curves.
Well, NBC Nightly news is having a series this week on women's health that can be found on nightly.msnbc.com that kind of makes my point.
I don't know if you saw the first one entitled Fat and Fit but it said overweight women can be healthy and thinner women can suffer heart disease. It showed an example of each and said the body mass index can be misleading and the key for a women is to keep their waist under 35 inches. For a man, it's 40. Oops, I'm there. I need it to warm up so I can play more tennis.
Anyway, I hope that reassures some of you who are trying to fight the weight battle.
