When I founded The Body Positive, I was motivated by a desire to protect my daughter from the suffering I experienced as a teenager due to my eating disorder. I am grateful that because of this work, Carmen has grown up with a healthy relationship to her body.
In August, Carmen will be attending her first year of college. I'm thrilled to know that Carmen's experience growing up with The Body Positive will not only keep her from suffering over her body as many college students do, but will also allow her to be a positive role model to her new friends. Did you know that 25 percent of women use harmful measures to reduce their weight, and men's dissatisfaction with their bodies has spiked in the last decade?
The primary initiative of The Body Positive's mission is to support these young people by implementing educational programs that transform individual and cultural beliefs about weight, body image, and identity. The result of this work is a growing national movement of healthy, confident individuals contributing to positive change in the world.
Please join us on Sunday, August 1st as we launch our first Be Body Positive Day.
We are asking you, as our long time supporters and new friends, to join our day of action by doing something that makes you feel great about your body.
