Every Girl, Remember This, You Are Beautiful, She S Beautiful, Truth, Thought, So True, Beautiful Doesn T, Body Positive
Remember that your beauty is unique unto yourself. It is incomparable and deserves to be honoured and adored. #beauty #body_positivity
It's like the other side of that other saying, "Saying someone is ugly doesn't make you any prettier." One has nothing to do with the other, but it has a lot to do with the concept of "self-reflection." I've always thought that belittling someone else is very transparent. It speaks of self-esteem issues to even need to. On the other hand, to automatically accept someone's belittlement regarding you may also very well reflect an issue of self-esteem. (MindInProgress AJD2)
Why Compare yourself? You are beautiful just the way you are!
I need to remember this!!! Try to avoid comparisons.
Every girl needs to remember this!
Great thought for every girl
You are beautiful!
This is so true

The Journal of Community Medicine and Health Education take on “Health at Every Size” and find that it should be adopted as a mainstream “best practices” paradigm to promote health across individuals. This positive approach of helping individuals develop a healthier relationship with food, exercise and themselves will lead to greater self-acceptance, less size-related discrimination and decreased harmful behaviors (e.g., weight cycling, binge eating).

This is disgusting. Instead of showing your weight, this scale shows what to eat according to your weight. So, instead of using a normal scale to maintain and track your weight, you can step on this scale in the morning and be instructed to eat one piece of lettuce or water for the day. This makes a mockery out of both eating disorders and healthy lifestyles. There is a way to diet and lose weight healthily. The idea behind this scale completely contradicts that. It make

Have it all and not be "ideal". If the “ideal body” does not necessarily correlate with health, as research shows, what health indicators underlie, are more important than, or even directly challenge the presumed health of body image norms?

H.V+FiB; Me, personally, I am considered Obese by health standards. But my diet is well rounded. I consume a healthy amount of fruits and veggies, fiber and protein. I also have the indulgence of the less than healthy side of food as well. I am healthy, despite my physical weight and size. ~Dinkie
Obesity can be linked to a number of causes not just unhealthy eating habits. There are conditions such as problems with the thyroid gland that cause weight increase.
BODY SIZE is NOT an accurate indication of HEALTH. <3 Whether thin or heavy, we need to nourish out bodies with foods that come from nature... NOT processed, greasy, fast/convenient foods. Many can eat a poor diet and remain thin but that does not indicate that they are heathy!!!

A Real Woman, Curvy Girl, Real Women, Body Image, Skinny Girls, So True, Body Types, Skinny Women
Short skinny girls are also real women. <3 I don't normally pin things like this, but seriously: We need to be more inclusive, ladies. Verbally abusing thin women to lift curvy women up is counter-productive to the promotion of positive body images.
Haha so true- This girl knows whaddup- "So extremely SICK of people who get off on bashing skinny girls! Im all about empowering confidence in women of ALL body types, but it can be really hurtful to see the message skinny is not sexy posted at every turn. If I posted fat/chubby/curvy comments, Im sure I wouldnt hear the end of it. Think, people!!"
Stop using the term "real women" to refer to curvy girls. Tall skinny girls aren't fucking imaginary. Regardless of how a girl looks: all women are real women.
People that say 'Skinny' girls aren't real women should think twice before they speak. A 'REAL' women would never put down another
Stop using the term "Real Women" to refer to curvy girls. Tall skinny girls aren't imaginary. Regardless of how a girl looks: All Women are Real Women. Love this quote! No matter you size or your shape ALL WOMEN ARE REAL WOMEN
all women are "real women." Stop shaming both skinny girls and curvy girls.
Short skinny women are real women too
A Real Woman IS NOT A BODY TYPE!!!
Stop using the term "real women" to refer to curvy girls. Tall skinny girls aren't imaginary. Regardless of how a girl looks: All women are real women. (For now, I'm going to ignore some of the problematic language of this quote and just discuss the themes it addresses.) The concept of a "real woman" is tangentially relevant to the post I recently wrote about person first language, especially in terms of dehumanization. You might be thinking to yourself, "What about all the women on magazine covers who've had plastic surgery, are covered in make-up, and have been airbrushed as much as possible? Aren't they fake women?" No, they're real women, too. They're living, breathing human beings just like yourself. They might have made choices different than yours, such as electing to have plastic surgery, and they might be represented in a deceptive manner, such as with photo manipulation, but they are still real women. To determine the legitimacy of a woman's womanhood or of her humanity by her appearance—or even the choices she makes about her appearance—is fallible at best. Even the fact that we as a society consider "real vs. fake" to be a dichotomy by which we classify women is really quite disturbing. The existence and prevalence of this binary framework implies that a woman who performs femininity can be somehow not a woman because society does not deem her legitimate as such. On a deeper level, the dichotomy also threatens to allow women who aren't "real" to be somehow less than human. If women don't fit into a specific box—the box of seemingly natural but still somehow artificially defined beauty, the box of physical curvaceousness, the box of traditional femininity—then they aren't "real." If you aren't real, what are you? Are you fake, or imaginary? Whatever you are, if you aren't real, you don't count. The dichotomy of "real vs. whatever-isn't-real" makes it possible for each and every woman to fail to count at some point. For the sake of the legitimacy of everyone's gender performance, and for the sake of the very real humans around you, be mindful of the way you and those around you use language to place people into abstract boxes. Please, do stop using the term "real women" to refer to those with curvier body structures. But also keep in mind what it means to participate in that binary classification at all.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall .. is a phrase that goes through every woman's mind at some point with a stark difference though; the question is not to judge the fairest maiden in the kingdom, but a self assessment of her curves. See this movie, and you will never look at your dinner the same way again. As a society the world is becoming obese. The countries, the so called third world countries which have high poverty rates are also now beginning to show signs of obesity related health issues in children and adult alike. The United States, unfortunately has been fighting this for a while and research has shown that US spends 147 Billion annually on obesity. US as a country also has some of the best athletes in the world. Its a paradox society that we live in. Why and how is the world becoming so obese? I am no fitness expert. In fact, am miles away from it. My definition of fitness, like most other things is in moderation. While I would love to have a medically approved BMI, I focus my efforts on making sure there are no joints aching. As long as I can achieve that, its mission accomplished for me. Weight loss today a 20 Billion dollar industry with more than 100 million folks on diet. What is a diet? In the olden days, it was the food that the nutritionist told you to eat, today it is the food you cannot eat. What has always amazed me is how different all of us are. Some of us can eat a brick of butter, not move a finger and not gain a pound. Don't you just hate those folks :) Okay, I say that lightly for I do have friends who have been blessed with the perfect metabolism. And then there are others who just need to smell butter, they gain two pounds, and they can exercise all they want but those darn pounds don't come off. The more I read on exercise and obesity, I realize that we all know the simple formula, calories in
