Ladies, I’d like to ask a few questions:
- How many of you have been on a diet?
- How many of you have wished for smaller thighs, smaller waists, fuller lips, smaller noses, bigger/smaller boobs?
- How many of you have seen commercials, TV shows, movies, music videos, and magazines that show us what the “ideal” woman should look like?
I’m going to guarantee that there is not a single woman reading this that has not answered yes to at least one of those questions.
I can answer yes to all three…
At some point or another, I have been on a diet.
I have wished for smaller thighs, calves, and a waist.
I have wished for smaller boobs. And even considered surgical reduction more than once.
I have been bombarded with the media’s portrayal and objectification of women and have been impacted mentally and physically by it. All without me realizing that I was being impacted…which is what is so scary.
But now, I am on a mission to put a stop to all this and I want to start by stating:
Your body is NOT a project and it is NOT something that needs to be fixed or improved upon.
