I began my Aikido training in January 1982 at age thirty-three. I carry the rank of 6th degree black belt. I am the founder and director of Society of Aikido Centers since 2002.
Being an Aikido teacher has become my business career. It has helped me to focus on one thing at a time as we were taught in randori (freestyle). That being in a calm state helps us make better decisions. Whereas I was shy, I learned to be assertive.
I’d like to hear dramatic, moving, profound before and after stories. Where you started, what training has taught you, where you are now and how it’s affected your image of yourself. I first started training right after I married my husband artist Pablo Solomon. He had trained since childhood and was a master of several styles ( he even did classes for the Queen’s Guard in the Netherlands). However, he felt that I would benefit more if I had a teacher other than him.
Congratulations to you for practicing in the martial arts. It is really a calming approach to staying fit.
My main reason for staring MMA two years ago was medically based. I was diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer in 2007 at the age of 35 and after my surgeries, my doctors at Sloan Kettering told me I had to log a minimum of five hours of exercise each week.
A couple of gals got it wrong writing about the gorgeous Christina Hendricks, the sensuous star in the TV series Mad Men that just won another Golden Globe. They are calling her curves chubby…”(As one stylist said, ‘You don’t put a big girl in a big dress.’)”
Being overly sensitive to how people judge us isn’t always a sign of low self-esteem; confident women also worry about how other’s view them. We are supposed to be perfect so we work hard to maintain this status. As a successful high-achiever, I have had to learn to take risks, love myself even when I make mistakes, and appreciate my aging body.
My honey was very excited to tell me that my big bum and chunky thighs were not only good to squeeze, but good for me. The article sites Jennifer Lopez as a good example of healthy curves. Go Jaylo.

“Our stories are in us from a long time ago,” says DeeDee Myers a leadership trainer, speaker, triathlete and mother of quadruplets, twins and three other children. One of her core life stories came as age 16 on her first date. She met a cute boy at a football game on a chilly day so Myers was wearing a jacket. When Myers greeted him at the door when he came to pick her up she immediately saw the look on his face. She said, “I thought, ‘Oh my God, he doesn’t want to go out with me because I only have one arm.’”
Are you a closet eater? Do you sneak food? Are you someone who hoards cookies, cakes, chips, and other yummy stuff so you can eat in privacy away from prying eyes?
In my early teens I learned to eat in the closet, literally.
One of the major goals of the 1997 Body Image Survey was to learn more about how people have remade their image. Though we anticipated receiving a few brief suggestions, we were inundated with your personal accounts of change. We have summarized your suggestions but kept your words. Try and discover what factors play a role in your struggle with your body. And be deliberate about creating a lifestyle that increases your chances for ending the war with your body.
Weight loss coach Kathrine Brown is on a mission to help women of power and influence who are holding themselves back. Brown makes it her business to detect the subtle sabotaging dialogs, thoughts and actions that contribute the slow seeping away of their power.
DeeDee Myers is never without a tube of lipstick in her purse. Leadership expert, triathlete and mother of quadruplets, twins and three other children, she’s always prepared, always presentable, no matter what. In Eighth grade her mother told her that she needed all the help she could get given that she was born with only one arm.
If I were to give an award for a big beautiful butt Serena Williams would be my choice. That gal can really weigh in on the topic, if you know what I mean. And I’m not the only one who thinks so. Check out ESPN the Magazine’s The Body Issue where the glossy Williams graces the cover.
