I've been on prozac for 10 years. Yes, I said 10.
I didn't really gain much weight, and what weight
I did gain was more because I had an appetite again.
(I had a debilitating depression where I couldn't even
get up the energy to eat!)

Now... ask me about quitting smoking and you'll
get a different story. Quit 3 years ago - gained 50 lbs.

But let me tell you something I've learned.

Its not your weight that makes you attractive or
not attractive. Its your ATTITUDE.

I may be overweight now, but I FEEL good. And the
days I'm feeling REALLY good people notice and
tell me how good I *look*


The word 'beauty' is old-fashioned. Somehow, something that everybody
possesses has become an unattainable goal, an ideal beyond most of us. But
isn't beauty a combination of humour, passion, activism, imagination,
energy, vitality and curiosity? It certainly has little to do with the arrangement
of your physical features. Seeing beauty as personal, individual and holistic,
allowing everyone to appreciate themselves for who they really are, we begin to
feel better about ourselves. And feeling good is looking good.

BELIEVE it - you'll see the difference!
