Thank you for the reminder that what we see as "role models" in the media is not real. Recently saw an article about what women do to prepare to walk the red carpet - not eat for days???? And then there is photo editing. I can barely look at a magazine without scrutinizing the body lines and chuckling over the Scarlet O'Hara waistlines (not!)
Amen to this article and most of the comments! Think about what your body can DO -- I can dance, I can exercise, I can hike in the hills. Eat for nutrition and to be good to your body and weight loss will follow **if** you need to lose weight in the first place. Maybe your weight is fine just the way it is even if you're not rail-thin.
Good point that most models aren't even real any more.
