Great article. I did not obsess about my body but my lack of friends or money or other status ideas. Then I got lyme disease and lost a lot of my bodies abilitiies. After 18 months of nurturing this body to become healthy and able again, I see how much I have and what is important. When I lost freedom of movement and choice, it was an eye opener. Report
I loved this article. It's so easy to get caught up with all beauty of celebs and models that it's no wonder women without professional hair and make-up artists start to feel unpretty. Report

A word about Victoria Secret models... I met a man who worked for the catalog. He said that every one of the photos is airbrushed. They make thighs look slimmer, especially the inner thigh. They erase dark circles under the eyes, take away blemishes, make the breasts look bigger, and trim up the arms. So love the skin you're in and relax, no one is perfect. Report

This is so true I am always beating myself up for being 10 lbs. overweight and I see myself as this loser. However, I can't remember a time I wasn't trying to lose 10lbs. When I was 13, 20,30, what a waste of time. I think I will give myself a break and take it slow and stop looking at my butt in the mirror. Thanks for the article! Report
Thank you for the words of wisdom. I have putting myself "down" because I've thought I wasn't pretty or thin enough, but this article told me something about myself..to think about me once in awhile as PRETTY...but don't get STUCK-UP about it. Report
This article is so true! Instead of looking for the beauty in everyone else, it's time to find the beauty within. Report
Good article! I used to take my arms and feet for granted ~ until I had to have an ankle fusion and my shoulder came dislocated - permantly! I would give anything if I'd appreciated what I had when I had it!
Thanks for making me think! Kudos to Spark for the wonderful articles they come up with!

Food for thought: Coming down on yourself; ruminating over your faults; negative self-talk. These emotional "clubs" are habits and can be hard to break. But consider this about the words you say or names you call yourself to beat your self up: would you allow a stranger or a friend to say these things to you? No. So why do you allow yourself to say them? Report
These are some very good thoughts. It we could only love our neigbor as we love ourselves...but then, there's the problem...we don't always love ourselves. Report
I really like this article. It's a commonsense article. Something I already knew, but was glad to hear someone else say. VERY MOTIVATING. Report
great article - I don't know why we beat ourselves up so much. The body is amazing and very forgiving, thank goodness. Report
fantastic article - our bodies are amazing. I may be morbidly obese but I love parts of my body. It produced 2 beautiful, healthy children who are my reasons to get/remain healthy. Thank you for such an incisive, friendly article. Report
One thing that keeps me going, is the fact that after I lose the weight, I hope to inspire others to do so too.
To be 'someone else's role model' is a big deal. My best friend just lost 65lbs. The sad thing is, we used to exercise together when he was very heavy set. I got lazy, and quite the exercising while he persisted. He lost the weight, and I still look the same. All I would say to myself was 'if only I had stuck in there with him... I would look like that!'
I have many 'fluffy' friends. I hope once I shed the pounds, they will too. I care about their health just as much as I do my own. Report
Thanks for this article, apparently I had read it before, since I'd already gained the sparkpoints, but I'd completely forgotten about it. It was just the pick me up I needed, I've been at the same weight +- the same 1 pound... for two months! and it's gotten very frustrating and depressing and I'm desperate to keep loosing weight but keep bashing my butt and thighs, I know it's mostly genetic where I store fat, but damn why does it have to be so hard to get rid of the fat there!
