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.”

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.”

I made three OB notes at study hall, and put two in my school’s bathroom. A friend saw and asked what I was doing. I explained and showed her, and she thought it was cool. I am a Girl Scout, and I was going to leave one there saying “God made you in His BEAUTIFUL image” but not all girls are Catholic there, so I gave it to my friend. I hope the girls like them. I’m also thinking of slipping one in for my teacher b/c she has an audition coming up.

I was recently at a local PF Changs [For those of you who don't know, it's a Chinese bistro. Yuum] and I posted OB notes all over the girls bathroom there. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera at home and only had my cell phone camera to take pictures. I still have them, but the quality is pretty bad. I’ll send them if you’d like.
