I was born in 1973, before the pressure of the internet, social media, sexy commercials, and magazine covers "told" us how we should look... Skinny! So I often wonder, back then, how did I become to have such a poor body image problem. Why did I body shame and food restrict? I was never overweight or bullied. But yet 30 years later, here I am still fighting with these sad issues. I have someone close to me that has a little bit of a belly but could care less. She tries on pants if they don't fit she still doesn't care. Why, because she is confident in her body. She looks in the mirror all the time and takes pictures. She loves and accepts herself inside and outside. I need to take lessons from her. She is my hero. She is my 12 year old daughter.
