I agree with lin43, badly written and unpersuasive. It offers nothing other than hatred. The author makes claims about research yet makes no references at all. I wouldn't put my trust into anything this author says to be honest. On the other hand I was pleased to find the list of blogs she tries to crucify, very nice to see some women who don't hate themselves. It's so important to focus on reality these days when we are so innundated with unattainable bodies in the media. It's not so bad to build confidence.
