End Fat Talk...2010
VHS First Ever END FAT TALK DAY-November 4, 2010. What a great day to teach students to end fat talk.
Do I look fat in this?
If I could only lose 10 pounds!
You look great! Have you lost weight?
We hear women and men in dressing rooms, locker rooms, and bedrooms around the world complain about one thing over and over again – their bodies.
In a culture that equates beauty with thinness it's no wonder that women and men have become obsessed with the figure staring back at them from the mirror. To many he or she never seems thin enough, not like the ultra slender women or men that strut down fashion runways, are splashed across glossy magazine pages, and star in today's biggest blockbusters.
We are told these women are beautiful. Men are buff! We are told that if we are thin we will be beautiful too. So we strive to attain this thin ideal and along the way destroy our self-esteem and berate ourselves for not measuring up to these unrealistic, not to mention unhealthy, bodies. Get rid of this!!
