Everywhere we see in magazine, on TV, social media it is the normal that you need to be skinny and I don't think it's right, we can't all be skinny. I am healthy weight but on my stomach it's never been as skinny or as flat as I wanted and I've been extremely insecure for a long time and being called fat never helped. I came to the realisation that I just need to try to accept it, I've tried exercising, not eating as much and eating healthier before but it doesn't make much of a difference, it's just my shape and size I don't think I'm going to be able to be skinny.
Now a days there is so many young people with low self esteem or confidence if they aren't skinny and more having eating disorders because of magazine, celebrities and the media and we shouldn't be in that sort of society. We should be accepted no matter what our size!
Meghan Trainor's All About That Base is an inspiring and good song saying about size and it doesn't matter. Adele has always said she is fine with her size and she wouldn't be skinny. I think there needs to be more advocates of different sizes telling young people and adults it's alright to be the size you are.
If you are wanting to lose weight I think that is fine, if your doing it for the right reasons, not just because you want to be skinny as everyone else. I know as well that some people are just naturally skinny and still eat enough. I hope body image does change and more people become accepting of their size but I don't if that will happen with all the skinny models/celebrities in magazines, TV and in the media and they get slated if they aren't a small size.
What are your thoughts on body image?
