Count down to Be Body Positive day on 8/7 begins!

Check out these ladies at Shaping Youth! They are definitely Body Positive! And that's why I'm featuring them on the first day of this countdown.This group attacks the root of where our body image issues stem from and are fostered every day... they media. They focus on media and marketing's influence on kids.

“We’re using for-profit media that SO often focuses on improving women’s bodies, and featuring parts of their bodies, instead using it to promote simple, uplifting messages that do NOT drive a profit – they remind women their worth in a world that often confuses them about that.”

  When you see the billboard off of the highway that shows before and after pictures of liposuction patients who have lost all that unsightly belly fat... and you start feeling bad about yourself... think about how the companies doing this procedure are making money off of feeding your insecurities. I say... give them the finger as you drive by, remind yourself of one of your best assets and move on with your day. Don't let them decide how you feel about yourself for the rest of the day.

When you change the way you look at things... the things you look at change! Take the power away from those messages!

Love you!
