Basically i dont pay attention to the image that society tries to make us think is the ’’correct’’ image: slim, attractive etc.
I don’t pay attention to this image by not allowing myself to view as little ads as possible and not viewing material (eg magazines, tv) or befriending people that promote this image.
I am happy as who i am. I get some weird looks, but i look back at those people JUST AS WEIRD. 6 years ago

But I do feel at home in my body. Last night my sweetie and I watched a tape of Margaret Cho’s standup comedy, and she talked about her eating disorder and her warped body image. I felt so grateful that I am not trying to change my body or lose weight. I think I started feeling good about my body the moment I stopped trying to change it.
I have been buying some new clothes that are cute, flattering and perfect fitting, and that makes a huge difference in how I move in the world.
My body’s not perfect according to whatever warped standards are in the media, but it’s healthy and I feel good about it. When I look in the mirror, I am pleased with what I see. In fact, I feel better than I ever have before. I used to think my breasts were too small—I don’t know where I got that idea but it stuck. Now I am really enjoying them instead of giving them the evil eye every time I look in the mirror.

Eve Ensler is the writer & creator of The Vagina Monologues.
This new show is all about American women’s obsession with fixing their bodies. The whole time I was thinking, “I hope my date doesn’t think I’m that neurotic!” But it’s there for all of us, below the surface.
All the dieting, working out, surgeries, guilt and shame… Eve challenged her audience to imagine what we women could do if we channeled all this time, energy and money instead into running for elected office or working to end homelessness!
I had no idea women in Hollywood were getting laser treatments to tighten their vaginas—presumably to please their partners more in bed. Eeuw!
The show ended with a story about Eve visiting Afghanistan. She goes with local women to an underground cafe to eat iced cream. That these women are willing to run the risk of being beaten or even killed by the taliban for this pleasure, a freedom and pleasure we willingly deny ourselves for the sake of our figures… All I’ve got to say is hand me the Soy Delicious! 7 years ago
I feel better about my body when I’m wearing clothes I like, when I’m dancing, when I am appreciating my body’s health, strength and flexibility, when I am challenging my body to learn new skills, or when I am caring for it and pampering it. I want to spread the body love from these moments into the rest of my life. 8 years ago
