|Regarding HSGs comments on loving yourself, I feel that is so important, in the last few days there has been a story covered by the press that one school girl was bullied so much about her weight that she killed herself as she had been told she was too big, that is so sad, if only teachers were able to cover esteem issues, the young teenager started to believe all the things she was being told, if only she had taken photos of some of the plus sized models in, i doubt if many people would have judged them so harshly, just recently an editor was interviewed on the coverage of the teen mags and her point of view was "well the teens want diet info, otherwise it would not be covered, most likely it is because of no other viewpoint is covered, it really is pathetic, it would be far better to have articles covering issues as You can love yourself and accept yourself no matter what your size. cheers viv|
