With regard to women’s weight the media has a lot to answer for. We have reached a stage where young girls think that being skinny is good – NO it’s not!

Young girls have become obsessed with seeing young models in the media who are incredibly skinny and they want to be that way too, but it’s not healthy for their minds or their bodies.

Women of a larger build can certainly look good and there are many examples of this.

One of the biggest sex symbols of all time was Marilyn Monroe and she was a size 16.

Take women such as Sophia Loren, Jayne Mansfield and Bridget Bardoe, these were Some of the most famous and sexy women in the world and they were not size 6 stick insects either.

The trend towards girls wanting to be skinny took off in the 60s, when models such as Twiggy gained international prominence.

As the years have progressed we have seen a number of other very slim models reinforce this look on young girls.

Once looking at one my friend’s advertisements he was doing for a women’s magazine, saw him edit a models stomach so she appeared much skinner than she really was in reality.

The ideal that many young girls look up to then is not even real in many cases!

The technique of “touching” photos goes on all the time, to present the perfect look to the viewing audience.

In many cases therefore its a created visual and not a reality.

We spoke about fuller figures of and the sex symbols of the past, but some of the sexiest women in the world today are not skinny.

Beyonce Knowles of Destiny’s Child and Angelina Jolie are not stick insects. They all have curves and men adore them!

Young girls see skinny models in the media and try and copy them, but there are plenty of fuller figured women around as we have seen.

Being skinny is not healthy either.

Lots of women are obsessed with dieting and that any fat is a curse. No its not, fat is not bad in itself at all.

We all need a certain amount of fat to be healthy, if you are not carrying enough you will be less resiliant to illness and unhealthy.

We live in a society that is more image conscious than ever and young girls are bombarded with advertising and media brain washing. They then adopt the mindset of wanting to be skinnier than they really should be.

They want to be perfect – But that’s ridiculous no one is – So why try?

They dream of perfection but they will never achieve it and it doesn’t matter one jot.

Be happy with who you are and keep in mind men love curves.

Angelina Jolie got married the other day, sad loss for all her male fans like me, who dreamed of taking her up the aisle.

Now that’s a dream – but its never going to be a reality!

Dreams are dreams – reality is different, dont look for perfection and chase an ideal that can’t be fullfilled, be happy with who you are.

Be happy with who you are and learn to accpet your body shape.

Stop chasing dreams and perfection and learn to love yourself.
