Your article is like a breath of fresh air in a room full of smoke. Thanks for clearing the air and providing some much needed perspective.

GREAT article. Have saved it to read again so I remember its lessons, and sent it to my sister C. So important to turn off that negative self talk!

Thanks for this message! Too many people, including me, get sucked into trying to look like that "perfect" model or other celebrity too often. Thanks for the reality check. I am 55 and I can do Tae-bo! I can lift weights! I can do cardio! Yes my body is an awesome machine just as it is.

Great article! So this morning I weighed and it was up, no big surprise after a Mother's day dinner that included 2 slices of Red Velvet cake! But I got dressed and looked in the mirror and thought, Dang, I look GOOD today! The pants fit loosely, the Polo shirt covered those little rolls, and I felt pretty fit despite those 2 extra lbs! I felt so good I made it to work 15 minutes early, ready to go! Enjoy today!!!

Dear Carrie, I agree one hundred percent! I am a natural girl and since living in Africa I am a bit distressed! African women hate their hair and the men are also trained to hate it! They wear fake hair additions and or wigs, and this is almost every woman! Actually I make it a point to tell each African woman wearing her own hair that she looks beautiful!

Definitely hits home! I have lost 25 pounds in the past year and am getting into clothes I haven't worn in years. Thought I was looking great until we took pictures Saturday for a mother's day lunch. My shoulder's are huge! I wouldn't let anybody take any more pictures of me. Now I see how wrong that was. I am going to try and look at my body in a more positive light. They did, so why can't I?

I'm male and I found this article worth reading. Contrary to popular belief, many men have these same issues as well.

I read this and I swear I thought it was written for me. I have never have cared much for myself. I was just thinking to myself the other day that I wish I liked myself as much as I like other people. When I look in the mirror I see UGLY, I wish that I knew why. I pray to God and ask him to forgive me . He gave me life and I have this and am not appreciative for this awesome gift of life. I have much in my life to be thankful for . I went to counceling and she told me that I have PTSS, she says I eat to gain weight to protect myself from being hurt. People tell me that I am a nice person well, that is debateable.

This gave me some insite on things. I am 51 not 16. My body nurished 3 kids. I did not treat by body right food wise. I had some issues when I was young. Believing the enemies lies. Thur the years I have learned that there are no perfect bodies. That includes me. But God said I am fearfully and wondersouly made. He can not lie. I am speical cause he said it and that is all that matters. The magazines with models are air brused and even if it were not I am gorgerous just as I am.

OMG - I just blogged about this very subject yesterday on my Spark Blog. Talk about hitting home. I am one of those women who wasted years - no decades - of my life doing exactly this. And now I'm turning 50 and thinking what the heck? Why did I do that to myself? So much wasted time. Great article. No, awesome article. It is so true. We need to STOP DIETING. STOP COMPARING. START LIVING. Living healthy. Moving our bodies daily because it makes us strong, not because we'll get thinner. Taking care of our bodies as they are an incredible gift. Live healthy and a healthy body will soon follow.

I get it. I think I finally get it.

I actually feel better about myself after just reading these articles. I'm so hard on myself, but never notice imperfections in others only their good traits. I'm a twin, the "fat one", so I beat myself up even more. No more I say.....no more!!! I'm beautiful too.

Wow! Thank you for a much, much needed reminder to stop berating myself for not looking like a model, since they don't even look like themselves, either!
