Alesha Dixon

"Like most women I have good days and bad days, but I've always tried to have a healthy attitude towards my body.

I appreciate my body and believe if i look after it, it will look after me. It's all about moderation.

My motto in life is, "a balanced life, is a happy life."

It saddens me that so many people have major hang ups about themselves and that they have become a prisoner of what society says they should look like.

It's utter nonsense! We are designed to be different!

Being you is the best you can be, so we should celebrate our differences."
