I read somewhere that only 2 percent of women think they are beautiful, and 90 percent of women want to change at least one aspect of their physical appearance. This is tragic. And I find it frightening, since I have a daughter. The thought of her not liking herself breaks my heart. But then I think of how I have viewed myself, and realise that she could only learn from me. And if this is the case, I am even more afraid.

So, I would like to start focusing on loving and accepting myself just as I am. Of course there are things I really do need to change, such as my weight. But this is actually for far different reasons to that of what it was 10 years ago.

Ten years ago I wanted to lose weight because I wanted to be perfect. I look back now and think of just how beautiful I was, and how I should have enjoyed my body. Now I need to lose weight just to be healthy. And I'm sure I'll look back at myself in ten years from now and think that I was in a far better state today than what I am then. It's seems like a vicious circle, but it wouldn't be if I just appreciated myself along the way.

I'm going to do a series of articles describing different parts of myself I am not happy with and how I plan on working toward not only accepting but loving these parts of myself.

Stay tuned...

Kudos to you Lu Lu for saying the truth!
This article it so true.
I always seem to dislike my body from my stomach to my thighs.
I am currently changing it by going to the gym, but as you say what's to stop me from not liking something else about myself next.

good article I look forward to reading your next article about this.
