May 27 2007 Body Image Newsletter


Cindy Crawford said, "You start out happy that you have no hips or boobs. All of a sudden you get them, and it feels sloppy. Then just when you start liking them, they start drooping."

Talk about being body aware! Crawford didn't mention the guilt or shame that many women feel when they notice parts that droop - not to mention cellulite, stretch marks, skin tags, and zits.

It's better not to think about the negative. Instead, focus on what you love about your body. Nurture self-acceptance and compassion. Treat yourself with kindness, respect, and gentleness. I know - it's easier said than done!

The two latest articles on the BellaOnline Body Image site are:

Feeling Guilty, Ashamed, or Humiliated?
Though we often use these words interchangeably (eg, we say "Trying on bikinis is completely humiliating!" when we actually feel ashamed or guilty), guilt, shame, and humiliation are three entirely different beasts.

Getting Help With a Really Bad Body Image
Sometimes a poor body image is improved when you reconsider your thought or behavior patterns. Other times - such as with body dysmorphic disorder - you may need some help.
