I don't get it.So just how does doing what she is doing now contribute to a healthy self image?? Yeah I get all that self acceptance I just don't see how she could be happier now. It felt like she let the pendulum swing too far in the other direction. Report

I used to think my body was only the means for the brain and my personality to travel around.

I am not at goal, but, now I appreciate my body. Is it strong? My mind is and it does as asked. Am what most men consider "pretty"? Nah, but LOL Ever look AT THEM??? NO PICNIC THERE EITHER! Report

What a powerful story! Society plays a big role in distorting what size a woman should be instead of just loving women for who they are. Forget what every nay-sayer tells you about how you should look! The only reason they say anything is because they are not happy with their own self. I believe God made a woman to be beautiful no matter her size, shape, color or age. Report

You are among so many sisters who've had those thoughts, many of us who have been told and come to believe all those terrible things about ourselves. I'm pushing 60, and I am just beginning to feel like I can "live" without having dieting down to thinness. Please make this documentary and show it everywhere!!!!!! Report

I've come to realize that I've had a distorted body image of myself since I was a child. When I look in the mirror it's like looking in a fun-house mirror. I see myself as fat and lumpy. I guess I never developed anorexia or bulimia because I don't throw up and would never do anything to harm myself. The only way I can judge my size is by the size of my clothes. When I was a size 6 I still saw myself as fat, but knew that wasn't accurate. You can't be a size 6 and fat. This was a painful video for me to watch. With age and the evil "shape shifter" I'm definitely no longer that size 6 and that's okay. My goal is to learn to like the body I have today. Report
