Once upon a time, there was a young girl who wished she was a boy. After all, boys had all the fun; boys went on adventures; boys saved the day. So she climbed trees, and played with cars, guns, and swords, and kept her hair shoved up in hats. Then one day, this girl became a teenager. Suddenly she liked being a girl. She wanted to be pretty. But her father was against her being beautiful lest she attract the attention of boys and even criticized her weight. He enforced baggy clothes and forbade makeup. Her mother never wore makeup or jewelry or even painted her nails. And she was schooled at home lest she make friends who would lead her astray. Prohibited from reading fashion magazines or watching TV, she grew up with no idea on how to be, look, or feel feminine. Afflicted with extreme acne, she secretly experimented with makeup, but looked like clown and was teased. She dreamed of the day when she would be thin and beautiful...but food became a source of comfort, easing the turmoil within. As an adult, she gave up on makeup, and followed in her mother's footsteps of being a chronic yo-yo dieter and dressing in sweats. Years later, after several failed relationships, she met Prince Charming and is currently living her happily ever after...except for that elusive dream of being thin and feeling beautiful. So now she has founded the Bombshell School of Beauty, so that while on her weight loss journey, she will learn all the secrets of being a girl, on makeup, hair and skin care, of posture and grace and elegance and on developing the feminine mystique. She knows that if she completes this now, what others take for granted and have known since their teen years, she will have mastered by the time she reaches her goal.
