Wow...does this hit home. I am soooooo horrible sick of seeing emaciated, anorexic-looking actresses in movies. First of all it's horribly distracting cause I just want to hold them down and force pasta down their throats. But it is horrible for all the girls...the majority....and women that look nothing like these creatures. It's amazing to me that since only 5% of the women in the world look anything like this that they are the ones that society has epitomized as beautiful. Those aren't women's bodies they are sporting either. I will say that I have always wanted to be the perfect woman until I realized that I already am. Its' confidence and strength, self worth and laughter that is sexy. Ask any man!!! So we women have to take up the cause and tell our daughters, granddaughter, nieces, friends and even strangers on the street...be a beautiful woman at the core of your being and the rest will follow!

Oh and Cassandra...love your article too. The obviously titled "Real Women Have Curves" is a great movie especially for young girls with mothers who don't promote them. And "Terms of Endearment" Not specificallly about weight. But the scene with Jack Nicholson (don't you just love him) and Shirley McClaine getting ready to "you know" and her inspection of herself..it's great! And then he shows up with his huge belly...priceless!

I am so happy to have found this forum- I have spent a lifetime (it seems) being self concious about my body type/number on the scale. My husband has been a constant defender when I put myself down or get frustrated with clothes shopping....but it's nice to find female voices on the topic. Looking forward to any way to have a better image of myself!

I really liked the movie Love and Basketball. My daughter played softball and basketball in high school and softball in college. I was so glad that playing sports made her focus more on being in shape than being thin.

She needed the extra muscle on her to perform well and in college they focused on working out to be healthy. This is a habit she carries with her into adulthood.

I think playing sports really helped her have a more positive self image even though she was never a size 5. She felt good about herself and that was the most important thing in getting through the teen years and early 20's.

Great article; I love Something's Gotta Give. I saw Eat, Pray, Love last night with Julia Roberts and really appreciated the scene where she and her friend go to Naples for pizza. They end up talking about pizza and should/should-nots of eating it, because of what it does to their waistline. Good spin on enjoying life and living in the moment.
