Body Image: A Lite* Rant

*Lite rants contain less than 30% of the intensity of regular, full-blown rants. I’ve been thinking a lot about body image over the last few months.  Specifically, I’ve been thinking about how comfortable I am in my own skin these days, perhaps for the first time in my life, and so it follows that I’ve […]

I’ve tried exercise regimens, and they typically go for 2 to 4 weeks […]
