Anyone who's been on a Florida beach knows how unforgiving swimsuits and even other swimmers can be, so it was no surprise when the Jersey Shore
starlet Sammi Giancola
explained her recent 15-pound weight loss saying, "You have to look good in Miami, because beautiful people are everywhere you look!"
But comparing your body to other women's is a losing game. Jenny Hazel, a therapist at Remuda Ranch, an eating-disorder clinic, explains, "The women I work with indicate how they are constantly comparing themselves to the models, actresses, and images they see in the media, which leads to body dissatisfaction, eating disorders, and trying to achieve an unrealistic and unattainable ideal." We hope Giancola can change her focus and remember why she is called "The Sweetheart" on the show.
