It's the jeans, ouch, I mean genes

Asks sister D "This is where we throw up our hands and blame it all on the genes???!!" when she read this BBC online article.

Meanwhile, saw a clip this morning on the today show (look for the "how to help your body image" video) that talked about how hanging on to your old skinny jeans can be bad for your body image (sets up unrealistic expectations, negative internal dialogues, etc.) I've been pretty good about throwing the really old ones out (like the one I went spent most of my undergrad years in), but it was fun being able to get back into my pre-baby jeans the other day. Hurray for swimming and elliptical trainers!
