Mag is doing me a great favor! She is taking a break from fun on the beach in St.Marteen to discuss body image. I know we are breaking some rules in her contract agreement about pay and blog space-time. But she felt it was important to talk about how hard you ladies have been on yourself this spring!
However, her recent on and off again relationship with Roggy Stewart is off-limits…
Me: Thank you for taking the time from your beautiful vacation to talk with me! I love your choice in egg-suit selection. It looks mermilicious!
Mag: Thank you darling! It’s Vegasace! Doneggalla made it just for me! You know when you called so frustrated about all of these women complaining about their soft rolls and jiggly thighs. I knew I had to say something!
Me: So what do you say to these beautiful ladies that are so hard on themselves?
Mag: I say smarten the heck up! I’m an egg I would kill to have arms to swim with and legs to run. Just imagine my status in carton-wood. But instead I work with what I got! I have big hair and luscious lips! I have an expiration date so I have to work everything I got!
Me: I love that you point out we have an expiration date! So how do we work it?
Mag: The best way to work it is hold that chin-up, shoulders back, and strut it. The best looks come from confidence! We all expire at one point so why don’t enjoy what we have!
Me: But what if they say that doesn’t matter! I still have fifty pounds to lose? Or to me who is currently over her BMI?
Mag: Are you exercising? Are you smiling? Are you enjoying good food? If you focus on your goals the weight will come off. But have fun doing it!
Me: What do you mean?
Mag: The next time you are exercising instead of focusing on how your thighs jiggle while you run! Don’t even get me started on that… Focus on your breath, how good it feels, how strong your heart is, and your perspective about yourself will change.
Me: Thank you Mag! I really appreciate the time you made to talk with me!
Mag: Not a problem! Margarita?
Me: Of course! Now off record what is going on with you and Roggy?
