In those moments we're not left feeling good about our bodies, our overall satisfaction and happiness is diminished and we are left with the belief that we need to change something about ourselves... Which when this doesn't work out leads to even more shame, self judgment and dissatisfaction.
Here's the facts, dodies are diverse. Mainstream media does not portray diversity of bodies. Your body is not meant to look like (insert names) body...
