So, the #dadbod is trending wildly!  Some say it’s sexist … some say it’s liberating and I think it’s rather equalizing!  Men just act like they don’t care … right guys?  Face it, everyone is sensitive about their bodies … especially aging boomers!

Like honestly … who has time for a six pack when you are constantly running around like a chicken with his/her head cut off?  If I can make it to the gym 3 times a week…great, but if I am just too darn tired and stressed … then heck, I need a drink and why not … a piece of pizza, a burger, some fries and now that summer is almost here….how about some juicy barbecued ribs!!!!

Well, I am kinda serious but also slightly exaggerating.  The main thing is to find a healthy weight … find out what makes you feel good … what you are happy and comfortable with and not what the media dictates as beauty or attractiveness.  Women (sorry guys) have been subject to this scrutiny forever and even though we don’t think men are…well, that’s not true either.  Come on ladies … admit it … we judge them too!

The main thing is … dadbods are great!  Mombods are great too!  Take a look at this … A Beautiful Body Project. Women celebrating being women, mothers, sisters and friends … in all shapes and sizes.  Read the stories … they are amazing! #abeautifulbodyproject

I am not sure if anyone in Ottawa is specializing in dadbod portraits yet, but there’s a truly talented photographer, Bri, and makeup artist, Jennifer, at Voulez-Vous Boudoir Photography, that offer an experience to transform the way women view themselves.  Boost your confidence with stunning images that celebrate your beauty and flaunt that boomer body!

Feeling good on the inside is just as important as feeling good on the outside … so let’s stop judging and allowing the media to dictate what is beautiful and what is not.  Go dadbods … venus and mars really aren’t all that far apart!  ps that’s a really good book!

Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus
