The girl in the magazine

Sunday, March 30, 2014

My SP friend, IMPROVINGME shared a quote from "You will never look like the girl in the magazine. The girl in the magazine doesn't even look like the girl in the magazine."

The following video that I discovered a couple of months ago - goes to show just how true this is. It's a real eye-opener!

If that link doesn't work, then try this one:

If that doesn't work, this one should:
Go first to ( )
Then, in the search box, type in: See why we have an absolutely ridiculous standard of beauty in just 37 seconds.
You will see that as a title for one of the videos listed on the page. Click on it.

    I'm so glad this issue is becoming more public. We all hold ourselves to impossible standards and then wonder why we are feeling blue. Nutso!

    I think that video is on SP too, but I don't remember exactly where! Makes me a little happier about wrinkles, bulges, gray hair, etc. BUT, I am healthy and happy! Thanks for sharing!

    That was shocking. I never realized how much tweaking was done to get the perfect body. Thanks for sharing an excellent video. I am going to pass it on.

Thanks for going back to find this and posting it for us.
I'm going to send it to my granddaughters, ages 10 and 13.

    Thankfully I never had a desire to look like the girl in the magazine. My dream is to look fit and healthy.

    I have seen this before. It is shocking. I think it should be required viewing for all teen-agers, male and female. I feel that males expect too much of their women and women expect too much of themselves because of all of this. It is just crazy.
