Happy New Year! Healthy Beauty Resolutions for 2010

It's that time of year when we start hearing more about diets, workouts, and "goal weights." Every 12 months, millions of women make weight loss resolutions only to end up feeling disappointed and defeated. So we're challenging all of you to kick off 2010 with a new set of promises to yourself: Renew your commitment to the Heathy Beauty pledge. Read the pledge today, and leave a comment telling us what you would add.

Healthy beauty is not about pounds, calories, or hours logged at the gym. It's about making important changes in your life that will lead you to true body confidence. It's a positive attitude that you can pass on to your children.

We send you our best wishes for a healthy, happy new year!

In Your Words: What Children Can Teach Us About Healthy Body Image

There's no doubt that the body changes of pregnancy and motherhood can lead to a lot of insecurities. But we also talked to women who found that the process of becoming a mother helped to give them a whole new positive perspective on their bodies.

"A really healing thing has happened with my daughter. When I see her--I call her naked baby because she loves being naked--it's amazing to see her body. She's growing into my body shape. I love it so much in her. It's just making me accept it more in me."
--Lisa, 35, quoted in Does This Pregnancy Make Me Look Fat?

How about you? Have you had a moment of body image wisdom as a mom or mom-to-be?
