HOLLER!!!If this is the case, why are women in America Starving themselves to be thin? I'll tell you why. . . MEDIA!
Last weekend I was shown a slide show on yahoo. It had side-by-side photos of a celebrity's original photo and then the touched up image we see in the magazines. I was taken back by how many pounds, flaws, and cellulite were removed from the original photo. No wonder we have a problem with body image! We think we need to try to be perfect when perfect doesn't really exist.
Why can't we go back to this:
A skinny woman of the 1950's. Notice their thighs touch, and their stomachs aren't pancake flat.Instead of this:
A skinny woman of today!
No wonder women have a problem with their body image!!!
Let's lose the desire to be model-thin, and just be happy being our healthy "fat" selves!!
