Operation Beautiful

If you’re a healthy living blogger, chances are you were glued to the Today Show Thursday morning at 8:35am to watch Caitlin Boyle’s interview on Operation Beautiful, and it was well worth it – she was fabulous!

Caitlin started the Operation Beautiful movement, inspiring people to end negative thoughts and fat talk, and transform the way you see yourself, one post-it note at a time. It is a simple movement that has inspired thousands of people around the world to spread positive messages to others, using just a post-it note message. As someone who works with numerous clients who have negative body images and poor relationships with food, this is a movement I can get behind wholeheartedly.

Caitlin’s book was released in stores on Tuesday and in only 2 days it has become a top 100 seller on Amazon.com! On Thursday, she was poised, professional, and of course, beautiful, as she had an interview with Meredith Vieira on the Today Show promoting her book and the Operation Beautiful movement. Bloggers and fans across the world watched her on TV and online, myself included, as she spread the message about ending fat talk. I was so proud! Not only am I a daily reader of Caitlin’s blog, Healthy Tipping Point, but I’m also a huge fan of the positive message she’s spreading with OB. So much so, that I was her expert dietitian in the book, and contributed some nutrition and diet related quotes to the chapter on Food. (So exciting seeing my name in a book!)

I’ve been lucky to know Caitlin over the past year from the Healthy Living Summit and POM Wonderful Blogger Harvest Tour and cannot wait to see where the success of all of her hard work on Operation Beautiful and her blog bring her. Congratulations, Caitlin! You deserve every ounce of success that comes from this. You are beautiful!

Make sure you check out Operation Beautiful and buy her book!
