5 Ways to Love Your Body

Let Cupid Take Aim at You


  • ^^^^^what cramparella said. - 12/29/2014 10:37:18 PM
  • This article is a good reminder that there is more to us than our body shapes. Isn't what we accomplish more important than how we look?
    When I am exercising I feel better. Then, I can have the energy and strength to do the things I want to do in my daily life, including fun things.
    It is always good to take good care of our bodies and keep in mind the "big" picture of why we are doing that. - 12/26/2014 1:06:42 PM
  • Interesting but certainly not new information, and over half the models on Spark People have clearly been Photoshopped as well. Somewhat hypocritical, isn't it?
    And I'm sorry but "disrespect" is a noun, not a verb although the vernacular is changing to accept it. An author loses credibility in my eyes when he or she uses slang in a professional article. - 9/21/2014 12:21:11 PM
  • Some people just don't know how to like/love themselves, after all, we're told it's selfish to put our own selves/wants/needs first. Then we're told we're too fat or too thin by those same people we put first, so we believe them. We are a mess. Change is a very slow process; this article is a great reminder that we are worth liking/loving, and we need to reconcile the need/desire to lose weight with loving ourselves the way we are. Not easy. - 7/18/2014 4:25:40 PM
  • I've tried hating myself thin, but it has never worked. Unfortunately body shaming is alive and well. Anytime anyone is brave enough to love themselves despite being less than physically perfect, there is always someone telling them it is wrong. The shamers will tell you it is dangerous to love your imperfect self because you will use it as an excuse to stay fat, lazy and unhealthy. Personally, I think you cannot achieve true health until you learn to love your body and yourself. - 7/18/2014 3:09:45 PM
  • This is a great article. I have struggled over the years with my self esteem, more so in the past two years. I am slowly accepting who I am and that I am perfect in my own way. I have been very hard on myself. Judgemental and believing I would be happier if I was thinner. I need to be happy with myself first! I want to be a role model for my daughter. - 6/17/2014 5:10:32 AM
    We truly should worry less about how we look, and be concerned about how we feel. This slim-is-fit notion is giving plus size people,especially the female population, a lot of stress. I think ladies should give importance to their happiness and not worry about how to make others happy! Lets put on our [url=]plus size skirts[/url] and smile. - 5/29/2014 7:26:06 AM
  • Excellent article.
    Message would have been better supported by the photo if model was not slender.
    Best would be 2 or more models of different sizes and shapes, all looking proud and happy. - 5/1/2014 11:44:20 PM
  • Great article!! - 4/30/2014 8:26:03 PM
    Articles like these are really great for my mental and helps me keep balance in my life:) - 4/30/2014 8:07:37 PM
  • I did not know that even fitness magazines are doing touch ups on photos. I am disappointed but not surprised. I only use them as a source of information anyways. Sometimes though their workouts do work well! - 2/8/2014 11:51:07 AM
  • This is so true! I think about and blog about this topic on occasion. Check out! (not mine but a blog I really like!) - 2/8/2014 8:07:07 AM
  • I know its time to get serious when I consider my initial weight gain (baby weight) is about to be 28 years old next month! No longer a valid excuse. I feel miserable, uncomfortable, and unattractive and it shows. I may never be the 130 lbs I was almost 30 years ago when that dip stick pregnancy test turned bright blue, but I can for sure be less woman than I am today! My new life begins now..... - 12/18/2013 11:10:47 PM
    I rewarded myself, back in the beginning, for stringing together a series of days on which I engaged in healthy eating and exercising behaviors. Jewelry, handbags, scarves - these ALL make great short-term rewards for laying down the habit-related building blocks that ensure not only weight loss, but successful maintenance, too. - 12/9/2013 5:44:33 PM
  • Even Leslie Sansone has been getting thinner and thinner on her DVD covers. They are even photoshopping her muscles away! What kind of an example is that from a leader in the fitness movement?

    My disappointment is worse for the fact that it's largely thanks to her routines that I've lost 46 lbs and are managing to maintain my goal too! - 11/7/2013 10:01:34 AM
