According to the Better Health website by the Victorian Government, "Body image issues affect people of all ages, genders and across all cultures. Recent research suggests that 80% of Australian women are dissatisfied with their bodies to some degree." I had a poor body image as a teenager and ended up with an eating disorder in my early twenties. I was under the false impression that thin people are happy. When I eventually lost weight, I was far from happy. I wish I had learned to accept my body and been kind to it by eating well and exercising moderately. You are more than a body - you also have a beautiful heart and mind.
