Where sociology, contemporary feminism, body image & beauty culture collide with everyday life.
I will definitely be reading this. I started following you mid last year and have loved reading your posts and I felt like I was on the journey with you. Congratulations and I can't wait!
I would love to do an email interview with you for our non-profit site for authors. You can find out more info at www.hotlitbooks.org. If you are interested please let me know. Your story was amazing tonight on 20/20. Great inspiration to us all!
thank you for sharing your story on 20/20, it was such an inspiration! Don't know if I could go one day w/o a mirror! Keep up the wonderful work and congrats on your wedding :) Beth Thomson
Congratulations on your achievement! I saw you on 20/20 and thought it was a real inspiration! More of us should be more concerned with how we feel rather than how we look!! Thanks!!
Good for you! You are absolutely correct and as a man, my image of beauty is an image of a woman such as yourself.
I just watched the clip of the 20/20 show. Wow! That is a wonderful story. What an inspiration you are, I hope you can touch many lives especially young girls with your story. Just from watching you on the 20/20 show I can see that you are a beautiful young lady on the inside and out. Thank you.
Your story is so inspiring! I wil try as long as i can with no mirrors, but I don't think I'll be as good as you!
Hi, my name is Angelika. I am German, living part-time in my palapa-jungle house in a little (car free!) fishing village 'Yelapa' in Mexico and part time with my American husband in Hudson, Florida. I've experienced a radical spiritual awakening through covering up my mirrors 12 years ago in Mexico. I have not looked into a 'normal' reversed mirror ever since. I am writing a book myself called "Beyond The Mirror World". Ever since I am giving people their true identity back. First through the "Video with a difference" (videofeedback 10 minutes alone! with yourself) and then in 2006 through finding John Walter's True Mirror! A non-reversed 3-D mirror (a combination of 2 optical 'front-surface' mirrors that join at exactly 90 degrees to form a seamless true-image). I have shown this True Mirror to hundredth of people, men, women, children and the reactions are amazing! I would love you to have that experience for yourself to see what I am talking about. I do not want to give you, or anyone else a new image but rather the realization that we are Divine Beings/Love expressing in this particular human form. There is no 'danger' of false identification with the True Mirror, it is a looking 'outside in' rather than looking 'inside out' which creates the illusion of a separate self, a 'me' in the mirror and a world/other people out there... I invite you to check out my YouTube channel 'Yelapaangel' to watch my videos "The True Mirror explained Part 1 + 2", "For Oprah and Eckhart Tolle's New Earth class" and the video I've recently recorded for David Icke's writing contest "Remember Who You Are". Also, you might be interested in my French-Canadian friend Yves Dore, who initiated my 'awakening' through a 'white dot in the mirror'. I know that might sound strange but check out his website "An Initiation in the Global Village" http:yvesdore.com, Section: "Mirror" - especially: "MIRROR, MIRROR, ON THE WALL WHAT THE «BLEEP» ARE YOU DOING TO MY BRAINS?" and "THE WHITE DOT IN THE MIRROR AND THE REVERSAL EFFECT OF THE OVERHEATED IMAGE". I think you will love this! Also, the "Videofeedback"! Lots of Love and Light on your journey of 'self discovery'! Angelika Linke (Yelapaangel) Please feel free to befriend me on Facebook! I've commented on your page...

Kudos to you for doing this! I'm currently completing my own eating disorder recovery book and always encourage others to try living without the scale, since there are so many other ways to gauge health and fitness. I think I'll keep my mirror because I think it's important to learn to focus on what you DO love about your body, and flaunt it!
you are a inspiration! i can only say thank you thank you thank you! we need more people like you in this world! i am from brazil, just so you know how far you have reached! you have my respect!
This world is so sick ! Everyone who think you are fat or ugly has a mental problem. You are a regular women with a regular body. You look good and you have carisma.
I saw you on german television and I've got to say you're such an inspiration for all women of the world! don't take any care of those negative comments! You're a beautiful woman and I wish you and your husband the very best :) keep on being the woman you had been without mirrors :) greetings from Germany!
Just saw you on the Jeff Probst show and was inspired to share your book and blog on my blog www.ilostmy30s.tumblr.com. Your journey was very inspiring and such a good lesson to be in the moment and live life from our hearts. You are a beautiful and soulful woman and I wish you and your husband a long and happy life together. You are an inspiration for all woman and men!!!
