Example of how looking a certain way won’t solve all your problems

December 13, 2012


A couple of months ago I wrote a post Why you’re still having issues with your weight. In that post I detailed a specific type of person and scenario whereby losing weight in order to accomplish a particular “look” rarely ends up satisfying people like they think it will.

December 3, 2012
