this is really good. I knew a girl in school who starved herself to be one of the "cool" kids. I basically told her just because she is pin thin doesn't mean she will be with the in crowd. (: best friends for 3 years!
Truth! It should inspiring all. But alas, the media will say and do what it wants. I think this is wonderful. You should love what you are, instead of mourning what your not. Easier said then done right? But still.
WOW a very expressive peice and sadly so true. My 12 year old niece asked me all the time if the food she is eating is going to make her fat? I hope Hollywood and the fashion folks are proud of themselves. She is already under wieght.
i love it. sometimes i feel like i will do anything to be thin. just to get someone to tell me i am pretty. though, that "pretty" is not the real beauty that has been known since the beginning of time. the human body is the most beautiful thing in the world.....left the way it is. i thank and thank you so very much for creating this piece.
Anyways, I love it.
However, if I can offer a somewhat critical opinion, I think it would have been better if each picture was different. Like .. the first one, a "healthier" looking torso, then the second picture, a little thinner, and then the third one, really thin and bony; all the while, still with the same writing.
Of course, that might be hard to do unless you'd photoshop it really well, but .. yeah.
Just a thought. It's still great just like it is.
i used to look like that picture...i was not doing well at the time though...now i must admit i am scared, people tell me, 'oh youre looking sooo good.'...and i have a fear of being fat...im petrified and i know that i am now fat.its difficult to maintain a healthy weight etc...
