Living with a Positive Body image

for all my LJ friends far and wide:

"There's a direct connection between your self-esteem and your body image. The better your self-esteem, the better you'll feel about what is happenng to yoru body as you journey through life.

Pressure on women to look a certain way can lead to a sense of failure and even depression. Many fashion models weigh 23 percent less than the average female, yet many men and women still consider the underweight body type to be normal and healthy.

MOST WOMEN OLDER THAN 25 WEAR A SIZE 12 or LARGER! Chronic diseases and health concerns can have an effect on a woman's body image. Pregnancy and menopause, "NATURAL LIFE EVENTS" women experience can also effect body image.

Developing and nurturing a positive body image and a health MENTAL attitude is crucial to our happiness and wellness, as we move through the different stages of our lives. Women tend to have more ANXIETY about their self-image than do MEN.

As we try to maintain good health, it is important to CONCENTRATE on our entire total being--our mental, spiritual and physical health. We must also concentrate on our BODY IMAGE and self CONFIDENCE. IF your BODY IMAGE IS POOR (according to whose standards i might ASK) because you are UNHEALTHY or OUT OF SHAPE you can change it...starting today!!!"

sound advice from a bulletin i spied while shopping at WALMART, a store i try to stay away from. It is SCARY. WALMART IS SCARY.
