Women are their own worst enemies. They pick themselves apart, they pick each other apart. Tired of all the negativity and 'Fat Talk', Caitlin Boyle has started a movement to change the way women see themselves one Post-It note at a time. This book is a collection of Operation Beautiful notes, stories and advice on health and wellness. I will admit that I've joined the revolution. I've left Operation Beautiful notes in public places!

My only real criticism of this book is that Boyle's tone felt a little condescending at times. ( )

I have five children and I half~jokingly describe them as “self~confident to a friggin’ fault”. Seriously, I have never met kids who are more self~assured than these guys. And I honestly have no clue where they get it from but I’m glad they have it. I mean, I’m thirty~seven years old and I don’t have that level of self~confidence. I suspect many women feel that way…

Tired of watching women pick themselves apart and reeling from the destructive nature of what she calls “Fat Talk”. Fat Talk is the constant picking apart of your physical attributes and declaring yourself to be fat even though you’re healthy and of average size. Caitlin Boyle did something radical, she wrote a positive affirmation for herself and stuck it to the bathroom mirror at the community college where she was attending night school. The simple message read “You are beautiful!” Feeling instantly buoyed, Caitlin left the message taped to the mirror and wondered what would happen to the next woman who found her note. So began Operation Beautiful a project with the simple goal of “transforming the way you see yourself one Post~it Note at a time.”

Operation Beautiful: Transforming the Way You See Yourself One Post~it Note at a Time by Caitlin Boyle is a compilation of anecdotes from women who took the challenge and left messages of love in random places for other women to find. The book is divided into seven chapters with five main subjects: Fat Talk, Family and Friends, Fitness, Food and Faith. Each section contains stories from women who have either found or left a note and the impact that the message had on them.

The global reach of this movement is extensive, from the heartland of America to the deserts of Nairobi and the cafes of Paris, France. Women are touching each other’s lives and making a difference, one Post~it Note at a time.

This is a self~help/inspirational book for women who are looking to move beyond the traditional ideals of what is beautiful.

Caitlin Boyle is the editor of Operation Beautiful and writes a daily food and fitness blog, Healthy Tipping Point. She previously served as a contributing columnist for The Wall Street Journal Classroom Edition.
