I used to really like the photo that Fabien has put up in his post below. But now I am not sure - do I look fat in that photo?
I wonder why all women have body issues. It is far too simple to just blame it on advertising. Why is it all designers make clothes for skinny people is just one of those often repeated and never answered questions.
Fabien loves me the way I am in whatever clothes I am in (actually preferably without!). Why does that make me not feel secure about not being skinny? I guess it is because you want to look "nice" as defined by the mass media because you don't want to stand out from the crowd, or if you do then only in a positive way (i.e. admiration rather than horror). Does that mean that I have no faith in Fabien's love? On the contrary no, but for my own self esteem I think it is important that even if I don't look like a supermodel at least I look "normal" - or whatever passes for it these days.
