Are you muscular or slim or curvy? There are many body types and each one is beautiful in its own right. Many of us keep an eye on nutrition and do exercises on a regular basis because we want to be healthy. A second benefit of our efforts is that we also get to look good. Looking good and feeling good boosts people's self-esteem and confidence. Women struggle with this a little more than men because there is a strong, kind of subliminal, pressure for women to look like models. The reality is that only 5% of american women have the genetic predisposition to be long and slim, like models. It is in our hands (boyfriends, husbands, friends, brothers, fathers) to reassure our female loved ones of their beauty. Let them know that we love them for who they are, not for what they look like.
