With the creation of photoshop, companies are now able to produce advertisements that have been altered and enhanced. They sell images of "perfection" that are not reality, and therefore unattainable. Girls strive to replicate these images but are never able to achieve the desired results. You could always be skinnier, prettier, taller, shorter, tanner...the list of options is infinite.
Many women in this position are left feeling inadequate. They have low self-esteem and form harsh judgements against their own bodies. They say they are going to never eat again so they can be a "better" person. But punishment and self-hatred is not the way to happiness or fulfillment. You need a support system. You need encouragement. You owe it to yourself.
The next time you are feeling low about yourself, try flipping the perspective. Don't dwell on feelings of guilt, shame, worthlessness or anger. This will only fuel more negativities, making you discouraged and give up. Respect yourself. Take care of yourself. Love yourself. Realize you are great now but if you make healthier choices, you will be even greater. Pass on dessert because you want to be the best version of yourself possible. Go running around the neighborhood because it's a pretty day and the fresh air makes you feel alive. Allow yourself to live up to your full potential.
Instead of punishing yourself, reward yourself. Treat yourself well and you will be amazed by how it impacts your life in every way possible.
