Check out these great resources for body image inspiration!

Reflections: Body Image Program

Reflections is a college based program designed to help sorority sisters establish and maintain a positive body image. Using highly interactive, peer-led, small groups, the two-day, intervention program designed by experts and implemented through trained peer leaders on college campuses throughout North America.

The Body Image Project

When you look in the mirror what do you see? The Body Image Project wants to know.

This online project is searching for women and girls of all ages to share their individual experiences and feelings about their own body image perceptions. The goal of the project is to have women and girls take the brave step of sharing their story, break the hold these perceptions have and ultimately reveal to those who share and those who read the thoughts of others – you are not alone.

Children’s Body Image Foundation

We need to start early. This non-profit organization serves as child advocates especially for those who are ridiculed or bullied because of their appearance, perhaps due to a birth defect, eating disorder, or disease.

Their vision? To see every child accepted for who they are and the joy they bring and for each child to receive the necessary allied medical services they require regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Amen.

Body, Meet Image

Mrs. Flinger shares her thoughts and struggle with body image — and says its time to get real. Cool pictures. Cool  writing. Cool attitude.

  1. Thank you for posting these. I think it’s valuable to have resources like these featured.

    The Mrs. Flinger site REALLY disappointed me. OK, she accepts the fact that she’s got a big frame. But then, she just goes on and on about denying herself “bad” things, exercising without mediocracy [sic] and eating clean. This is nothing new. Just another woman trying to be “perfect”. I will not go back to her site.

      Hi NewMe: I get what you are saying, but I liked her REAL attitude. In the post, she seemed to be just talking out loud, and saying it like it is. Towards the end she starts kicking herself to get into gear for a 5K run — what’s so bad about that?

      On the “bad” things, this is always a thorn at this blog because we all have different views on what is acceptable for ourselves, what is “healthy”, but I think if we don’t push our own expectations on others, what is the problem? It’s not hurting me that Mrs. Flinger is setting these standards for herself…is she?

      I think we have to be really careful about judging or getting irritated by others when they express their own personal expectations for themselves….because at the core of these feelings is guilt. Guilt that maybe you or I are not meeting up to others expectations or perhaps our own.

      Do you get where I am coming from?

    Though I’m certainly not the best yet, I’ve got some pretty good, practical ideas for working through your body-obsession, body-image-obsession issues:
