This is great! I am glad there will be at least 1 magazine my daughter can read and feel good about herself. I love the Dove commercials too. I believe Dove is behind this push as much as the readers and their comments.
My weight loss goals have nothing to do with pounds or being as skinny as I can, I want to be muscular, fit, strong, still curvy, and always improving. Lately all the guys I date tell me "you don't need to lose any more weight, if you do I may not be attracted to you anymore, haha kidding". Whatever, they are not kidding and I lose interest in them as soon as they blurt out this ignorant statement. It is my body and I can do what I want, if you don't like it, hit the road, JACK! Hopefully these campaigns will make more women confident and happy with their bodies at any shape. I am between 168-172lbs right now, my body fat numbers come in 15-21%, size 8. I am happy here, I was also happy at 230lbs but not healthy. I think women need to keep in mind that weight/size ratio varies in every woman depending on muscle mass and you can be at a healthy weight, but have normal weight obesity (NMO) if your muscle mass is too low. Don't worry what that scale says, just exercise, eat healthy, and say something nice to yourself in the mirror every single time you look into it!
I am here to help anyone lose weight or get healthier. Please contact me if you have questions.
