Tania Kindersley on Lizzie Miller

All this nonsense is being spouted over the Lizzie Miller/tummy flab debacle. Tania Kindersley, as usual, provides real perspective.

This quote is perfect:

To love and be loved, to contribute some small thing to the sum total of human happiness, to fulfill your potential: these are the things that matter. Real beauty comes in many forms: the ability to laugh at yourself, the talent for listening, the trick of making really good chicken soup. Random acts of kindness are more lovely than a flat belly. It’s not a snappy headline, but it is true.

I've always been a fan of plus-size models! There's a great site with many images of plus-size models here:

They're all gorgeous.

The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.
