Like probably 99% of all of you Lovelies out there, I have horrible body image. Always have. But it turns out there’s a LOT of resources out there to help ladies (and dudes!) with this growing problem. You just have to know where to look!
We all need a good laugh every once in a while, right? And these cartoons definitely help remind us that we’re not so different from one another.
I won’t lie, this is my favorite on the entire list. It updates every week with body-peace-inspiring quotes, pictures, links, and GIFs. And it’s bright and colorful!
If you suffer from an actual eating disorder, this site can gives wonderful, gentle advice for coping and healing. But even if you don’t, there’s plenty of good resources here, like an awesome section on eating disorders and body issues in the news.
This site is probably the most unconventional on the list, but it’s pretty awesome. You can literally enter in your height, weight, pant size, shirt size and even body shape, then see dozens of women who also look like you. It’s not skeezy or porn-ish at all; the site runs under the idea that seeing someone who actually looks like you will lead to women having less distorted views of their own bodies. If you can see the truth about others, you may be able to better see it in yourself!
Ready for a snarky take on body image? This site addresses portrayals of beauty in pop culture with no mercy. They even critique the message behind The Biggest Loser! Though I should warn you: After reading articles off this sight, you may never see the Kardashians the same way again.
Do you have body image problems too, Lovelies? What are your ways of dealing with it?
