I wanted to share this great site with everyone.
http://www.mybodygallery.com/

It shows real women (of all shapes and sizes) and is searchable by height and weight.

From their description:
"This site is here as an accurate reflection of what real women look like. All women."

I find it empowering to see the different bodies and beautiful curves. YOU are not alone. Smile

I've met the person who created that site-- she's the daughter-in-law of a dear friend. I've always found it to be an impressive site.

Society as much as we can deny it has set a certain standard defining beauty. We have this stupid mindset of beauty; you must be fairer and thinner to be defined as beautiful. I do not think that beauty must be any of this. Shapes and size matter less. I am not surprised if some girls develop eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia. Commercials and false advertising set a bad example to anyone seeing them. There are a number of amazing websites including this one that offer empowerment to women of different shapes and sizes. I think women must be more confident even if they are not size zero.

I love that site! You know what is strange about the current concept of beauty? I is completely based on looking (what is considered to be) “healthy”. What healthy looks like has changed over the centuries. It used to be ‘healthy’ to be slightly plump. Even in the last few decades it has changed drastically. Marilyn Monroe, Ms Sexy herself was a modern size 14. I have weighed pretty much the same for 20 odd years and yet have gone up a size. Something is fishy about it all if you ask me. Personally I look at those supermodels and think ‘omg she needs a sandwich or something!’
