Please consider pinning some of these, or sharing on facebook. The more we speak about body image issues (and it’s really easy to do with these quotes), the more we chip away at the idea that all women need to be working hard towards having ‘the Official Body’.
I hope you have a blissful body-loving day ~Sandy
