The FACs: Body Image

Around the Table The mantra in our house is; “There is no such thing as fat, there is only unhealthy”. Bam! My job is done. Who are you kidding Cherie? Three women in a household with no male figure around to validate how pretty we are or how great we look in our latest fashion (Even though I raised my girls to despise the idea that their self-worth is based on such statements; the art of the testosterone driven compliment still holds unbelievable power.) is bound to need more than some wise old mantra you got from the fortune cookie of your last meal. Course, like any good mother, I’d prefer to believe, the girls are fine. Until the box is put up on the table and the topic chosen is “Body

Abracadabra! Poof, you’re skinny.

I don’t think I can explain my relationship with body image other than it is superficial. For me it’s less about being the part and more about looking the part. I’m all for the art of illusion. I’ll change my diet or start exercising in the hopes to see rapid change, but for what? I’m told by everyone that I’m skinny. Yet I can’t help but look in a mirror and feel 400 lbs. Its the Opposite of Magic What possesses me to think this way? Why am I so dead set on the fact that I’m fat when I’m clearly not?

Magazines and advertisements paint pictures of what is conventionally beautiful. People Playing Pretend Over the years I have come to see that this ideal beauty is false, an artificial version of real life! Where the models rarely look like themselves after they’ve been photo shopped. As a kid and an adult, I strive for this picture-perfect beauty that appeal to the widespread media and my male peers. I am under pressure to do so. Although, when I say “whatever” to throw caution to the wind and opt to be myself,

I Found You Miss New Booty

I grew up a skinny girl constantly eating. When I say skinny, I mean collar bone display, no hips, no butt no calves and no boobs skinny. When I look in the mirror today that very thought is unfathomable! But worse than that -- I can recall, back when I was a boney, no angled looking child, I dreamed of a butt, boobs and thighs. Size Matters...Or Does it? I watched the girls in the projects around me with their big ‘onion’ booties (or what ever they call it today) and their thunder thighs inherited honestly by their equally sexified-looking mothers. I thought to myself “How the hell are they getting these bodies? I want one so badly!” It couldn’t possibly be coming from food - after all
