BODY RESPECT

Accept your genetic blueprint. Just as a person with a shoe size of eight would not expect to realistically squeeze into a size six, it is equally futile (and uncomfortable) to have a similar expectation about body size. But mostly, respect your body so you can feel better about who you are. It’s hard to reject the diet mentality if you are unrealistic and overly critical of your body size or shape. All bodies deserve dignity.

conversation turns to dieting and body talk? There are many ways to navigate these
instances, depending on your personal comfort level or the situation.

You might choose not to engage. You might assert yourself. Or you could change the conversation entirely.
