The BlogHer Network is always filled with wonderful articles. Today, I visited Leann of In My Voice where she brings up a thought provoking question on The Ideal Body and our role models. Where do you stand on the challenges of living in a society gushing over movie stars, singers and models that are pencil thin?
It is so true that the attitude toward the "ideal body" is taking a toll on us, especially psychologically. We mommies are so happy to be moms, loving our little ones and our hubbies, but with the pressure to be thin, there's always a dark cloud over us. It is hard to accept our changing bodies in relation to the images we see before us in the media but if we as women learn to support one another, I hope we will learn to ignore the "ideal body" fad and learn to love individuals as they are.
