Wear your heart on the palm of your handsWe all have issues with our bodies.

Most of us have at least one thing that we would love to change about ourselves, whether it is a little extra softness in our tummies, frizzy hair or thighs that don’t quite match the thighs that we see on the Victoria’s Secret runway shows.

Happy fruit faceEach one of us has their own thoughts about food.

Some of us enjoys it while others feel guilty when eating something they think it’s prohibited.
