IMG_4487The female image

For many years, like most women I struggled with my body image. As a young girl I was told by many boys that I liked that if I hit puberty that they might just go out with me. I never had the fuller figure that I wanted. I was pretty much always skinny with very little shape. For years I felt insecure and that I did not measure up to other women. Images of scantily clad, fuller curved women looking “sexy” haunted me. I would get knots in my stomach passing magazine stands, looking at women on TV… I really felt inferior. It was not until I met my now husband who has only ever made me feel like I am the most beautiful woman in world that this began to change. Now…… as a more mature woman, amazing husband, brilliant kids and a passion for keeping fit that I am happy in my skin. I do not feel like I need to measure up to anyones standard of what a woman should look like.  I take my hat off to Olive Bowers at 13 she has more confidence in who she is and is willing to fight for it. What an incredible young woman Olive is, her parents must be so incredibly proud. I hope Tracks magazine take note. 🙂
