I really am fat and ugly and don't care what other people think of it. I think my body is completely disgusting so I avoid looking at it as much as possibleTo you this stage may have past but I know their are still million teens, 20+ and even 30+ who struggle with body image. Sadly I hear the above quote constantly around campus and from many females in general. We have come to an era in which technology is booming and the media want you and I to look like a doll with blond flowing long hair, blue eyes, perfect lip, face and curve at the right places. The society expect you and me to have the perfect body, perfect make up and perfect cloth so we run like crazy women to the store to buy product that will make us look like the model but only to steal away our joy after days of product not working the "miracle." The society force you and I to spend countless hours in the Gym to shed away extral 30+ pounds to get to the ideal weight. Everything is all to be blame on the society but then who is the society? It is me and you!
SO HOW DID YOU FEEL AFTER SEEING THESE VIDEOS?
Do you Love your body?
Every woman to her own body...Growing up I have always struggled with weight; I was never overweight but more like underweight. I could eat everything in the whole house and still not gain a thing. It was always hard to gain weight but I could loose 10 pounds within a week or 2 without any exercise. I remembered at 12 my mom had traveled to Nigeria first time in my life she had ever traveled for more than a and I lost about 20 pounds because I missed her (Yup momma's girl) and fast forward 8 years I never gain that 20 pounds back. Coming to college was my hardest struggle, when people who don't know me where talking all nonsense about me been thin. For a time it hurt but eventually I did snap out of it and became very comfortable in my size 2 skin. As mentioned in Unbroken love I still get very excited to gain weight after all my resolution is 10 pounds for the year, regardless of what happen though I LOVE MY BODY!
The biggest problem I have come to realize after joining several women/ladies group is that we young ladies tend to be very harsh on one another. We do not appreciate each other much but rather criticize. How many times have you walked down the street and told a fellow lady you have nice eyes, curve etc?
