|I don't think a better image could have been chosen to prove the point than one of Barbara Brickner. Think about all of the amazing things that she has done in her life. In addition to being the definitive plus-size model, she is a wife and mother, she has a university degree, she owns her own business, she sings (at a professional level), she composes music, and she even writes lyrics (and truly moving ones at that). Could anyone imagine a more fulfilling life? And she has done all of these things without ever trying to be a size two -- or even faux-plus. She has always remained her natural self.|
Her success in every field is due to many factors, of course, but one of those is surely the fact that she has devoted her time and resources to much more fulfilling pursuits that fuelling the diet/gym industries.
Here is a really lovely new image of Barbara at Nordstrom. Message received --
