During my lunch hour I popped over the mall to Motherhood Maternity where I have found a few good maternity staple items of clothing already. I figured this would be a wonderful opportunity to spread some of the Operation Beautiful love knowing how difficult it was in the beginning to embrace the changes that are happening to my body and decided I’d leave a note in the changing room.”

Amy wrote, “I love Operation Beautiful! It’s such a great idea. I used to struggle with image so much that it almost killed me. Thankfully, God used a testimony (from Becca Barlow, from the Christian group BarlowGirl) to help me get through that and know that I am beautiful just the way I am. But I still do struggle with image and I want to help other girls, too.”
Kailey wrote, “All quarter I’d wanted to write an Operation Beautiful on the infamous Ellis Hall bathroom stall. (Whoah, rhyme much?) Yesterday, I found myself alone in the bathroom, so I finally did tha damn thang! It felt wildly freeing and amazing. I just felt the positive energy surge onward, even though it was just a bathroom stall. I’m excited to check back on it next week to see if it spurs any other positive comments.”
