Describe a different woman you admire and what you like about her every day for a week. At the end of the week, notice the different body types of these seven women (if you are really busy just pick at least 3 women). See if the women you picked have a variety of body sizes and shapes, or if they were similar in appearance. What does this information tell you?
Can you see these women as a whole person, not just a woman who weighs a certain amount? Would you love any of them more or any less if her body size was different? Probably not. Whenever you get the urge to berate yourself by wishing you were thinner, ask yourself, "Would you love so and so more if she weighed ten pounds less?" Of course you wouldn't. Your weight should be as irrelevant to you as your friend's weight.
