Mag the Egg Talks Body Image

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?

Will you take Mag’s Advice? What positive advice would you like to add to the conversation?

  1. Mag’s a smart cookie! Err…a smart egg. I think women should absolutely strut it and be proud of what they’ve got, even if it isn’t what society would deem “perfect.”

  2. Belle, such inspiration on the subject of inspiration dates! I love Mag’s take on life. I just need to tattoo her words on my forehead and I’m sure I will be able to make the best of myself 😀

  3. Find one thing you like about yourself and focus on that! I started out deciding that I had great calves, and that if I focused on those, I might eventually feel more positive about the whole of me. Which I did.

    Love this. 🙂

  4. What a coincidence– I have great calves, too! One of the most beautiful features a person can have is a sense of humor.
    I love the puns in the comments– glad to see I’m not the only pun lover around here!

    1. LOL! The one thing I love about Mag is she is not over easy 😉

      I think we should our calves off this weekend! I think forecast the is sun, sun, sun! Perfect for that lovely skirt! Let’s strut it!

  5. Mag is one smart cookie, err, I mean egg… It is so easy to focus on our negative qualities, but it doesn’t help or make us feel any better… She is right… We need to focus on the possitive….

    and her clothing comments – priceless!

    1. She is a very smart cookie with a wild side on vacation! I had to carry her to her room last night and the whole time she was still flirting with all of the gentlemen 😉

      It really is true! It’s much easier to beat ourselves up instead of recognize that we are doing a good job even if we ate a piece of cake 😉

      Mag loves her designer clothes! She even has it in her contract that Degoir and Chagnel. Must design several egg cups for her a year. She is such a diva!

  6. I’ve had a bit of a health scare a few years ago and because of it finally kicked the nasty habit of smoking. Since then I’ve gained some weight and have a few “jiggly” spots… but I also gave birth to three children. I exercise, eat healthy and really feel good. I’m trying to learn to be happy with what I have. It’s not always easy, but Mag is right, work with what you’ve got!!!

    1. Sometimes it’s not easy to be happy when we are trying to be so pro-active. But every now and then it’s good to have your slice of cake and eat it too 😉

      We just got to strut our stuff and roll with good times 😉 Keep strutting Susi! Work it! Work it!

  7. Advice? Oreos fix everything. Chew them with confidence 😉 And run because you love it, not because you ate too many Oreos. Consider them fuel for that last 200m sprint at the end of your 10k!

  8. I keep saying this but once more can’t hurt: thoughts create. If you keep thinking that you look overweight, you are going to BE overweight. Diets, exercise are useless if you keep thinking like that. Even if you manage to lose weight through them, it will all come back (and sometimes more) when you stop. Just THINK yourself slim. Stop looking at yourself in the mirror every five seconds while thinking about the bits that you don’t like. Find something that you do and concentrate on that. (i.e. eyes, hands, hair…) Don’t even look at the rest. Keep saying throughout the day, “I have beautiful eyes…and/or hands, hair… and my body is firm and healthy.”. Say it all the time. Out loud (when nobody’s nearby because they might have you locked up – people are so intolerant of those who appear to be “different”). And find yourself an activity (doesn’t have to be sportive or even physical) an activity that interests you so much that it takes your mind off your appearance and absorbs your full attention. Eat whenever you are hungry but don’t stuff yourself. Drink plenty of water and don’t forget your green, leafy vegetables. Your body will become firm and healthy because your brain is hearing you say that it is, so it will do what is necessary to make it that way. You’re the boss. There you are! Nothing to it!

    1. I love your advice Marilyn! We are our own bosses and we have to live each moment like our last. I think we can live our life to the fullest and still maintain a healthy outlook.

      I don’t know why we are so hard on ourselves and it is acceptable to be that way. But there is something wrong with liking yourself. It just doesn’t make sense to me.

      Sometimes I don’t always get society or their expectations…I hope they don’t lock me up 😉

  9. I love Mag, the egg! She is cool. I live by this philosophy, “I only live once, I may as well enjoy as much as I could.” It is exactly what Mag said, “We all expire at one point so why don’t enjoy what we have!”
    There is a positive aspect of everything. Instead of looking at how many pounds to go or how much sags we have, why not focus on the challenge we have and along the way benefit from the health we obtain from regular exercise.
    We can take the opportunity to walk some more with our family. While it is good for our health and reducing the weight, we gain some fun spending time with our family. At the end everyone is happy.

  10. Mag might not have any arms and legs, but she can be scrambled, souffléd, boiled and turned into a meringue!

    Now I may have hamlets of cellulite, but I can walk, do yoga, run when frightened and dance my ass off when the beats are right …

  11. What a good egg you are Mag rolling, boiling and poaching us with your fabulous advice. You are an inspiration.
