Marsha is on vacation this week, so I looked in her archives and came up with one of my favorite Marsha posts. This particular post struck me because I speak to women daily who still struggle with an unhealthy attachment to the scale, calorie counting and exercise.

Here is the post from 2005 which, in my view, is worth another read.
