A Picture Does Not Tell The Whole Story

Apps like Timehop and Facebook’s On This Day can be fun to see what you were doing on a certain day throughout the years. It can also be incredibly triggering.
Similarly, when you’re scrolling through your feed this weekend and seeing a variety of bodies, remember that you do not know anyone’s story. You do not know what it took for them to look a certain way or what their thoughts are about their body in the picture.

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.
