And... A Guest Blog About How To Not Look Fat While Reading A Book In Public from Charla Krupp herself:

Thank you for having me on your blog, Shesten!

You’d like to know how to not look fat when reading a book in public--your head is down, your shoulders sometimes hunched... what should we vow not to do and what should we do to accessorize and make clothing choices to not accentuate the double chin that we're bound to get by looking down?

That is a problem… try to keep your shoulders back at all times. Reading is better done in the privacy of your own home so that you can relax and expose your double chin without thinking about it. You might want to consider wrapping a long cotton scarf around your neck. That can look very chic if you’re self-conscious about the neck. There is an entire chapter dedicated to the neck and shoulders…with a lot of ideas of how to look Thinner By Tonight with a thick neck and broad shoulders.
I think that every woman, no matter what her size, can look her absolute best by choosing the right clothes…Remember, it’s not you, it’s your clothes. My message: Don’t sweat if you’re 5, 10, 15, 20 pounds overweight…just become an expert in hiding the fat. If you have lost weight, you might have hanging flesh that you to conceal…you’ll find more than 1000 tips to look your absolute best in How to Never Look Fat Again. Look fit, not fat. We can do this. We’re women. We can do everything!

Thanks Charla!
