Negative Body Image


Monday, November 19, 2012

I just read this article on Negative Body Image. I thought it was really great. I found that following other spark buddies who were striving for the perfect body was detrimental to my own healthy living journey and this article somewhat confirms that theory. blog.womenshealthmag.com

Living a healthy lifestyle should be about how we feel and less about how we look in our skinny jeans!

    Nice article, thank you for sharing. It reminded me of a quote I had come across. "Think highly of yourself because the world takes you at your own estimate." I think it's the same with our body image and our friends with whom we occasionally - or obsessively! - do the fat talk. And exercise can play a very important role in changing our body image.

    Great article, thank you! It really helps not to trade "fat talk" with gfs and to focus on exercise/fitness/body parts that you love instead!!

    Thanks for posting this. There are so many people who are at war with their bodies, who openly state they hate their bodies and it is very sad to see.

    Thanks for the article! I emailed it to a friend of mine. We do the fat talk...and I hate it, it does make me feel worse about myself even though I finally feel better usually.
