It’s Okay to Want to Change Your Body

it's okay to want to change your body

The non-diet, Health at Every Size message may say that you don’t need to change your body to be happy or healthy, but wanting to change your body isn’t wrong. It isn’t bad. It doesn’t mean you’re vain or have the wrong priorities. It’s completely normal at times to  want to change your body. You may want to lose weight, have a smaller nose, bigger butt or breasts, bigger biceps, more chiseled abs, tanner skin, lighter hair, etc. etc.

Wanting to change your body doesn’t make you a bad person. Often times, changing little things about our bodies is no big deal. However, it can become a problem when you believe that changing your body will change your entire life. That somehow losing weight is going to give you every success you’ve ever wanted in life. Or when it becomes your sole purpose in life. When everything you do is for the purpose of changing your body.

So, yes, it’s okay to want to change your body and you don’t have to love it all the time.
