> Jim, Jim...calm down...all this ruckus is not good for a distinguished gentleman like yourself...Don't you remember what it was like to be 40'ish and wish yourself a little trimmer, a little more toned?  I know you've probably matured into a wisdom that is far beyond those of us who have not yet left our youth that far behind...but someday we'll be on the flip side, too and then we'll have moved past these issues as well!  LOL LOL!  Also, BTW--before you go talking about the beauty of the mature body, I'd advise you to revisit that Dallas men's website and rethink that position, at least in some instances!  teehee! And if you have any evidence to refute what 15 years of being a nurse has told me about the effects of aging on the human body, please send the pics. to my private e-mail address.  LOL!!!  And I sometimes think, women are more prone to self criticize their bodies than men are...my loving husband can look at me, his wife of these many years whose body has been thr!

I understand your opposition to the Madison avenue approach to body image--God knows, I've taken care of enough anorexic and bulemic people, many of whom have died secondary to complications from it, to know how devastating that can be--but I think Pam was really poking fun at herself for not buying into all of that...does she strike you as someone who isn't comfortable in her own skin? and BTW:  Thanks for your opinion, it is always appreciated!  :-)
