Being post-menopausal and going through the changes, I can’t say that I have escaped body image issues through my years or that I was that artful at not passing this on to my daughter. I’m sad about this. It’s interesting that when I have really looked deeply at the reason why I have been so self-conscious about my body; it has been all about whether I will be liked/loved. I had to have the perfect body to have a man love me, or at least be attracted to me – and perhaps even more, I had to have the perfect body just to be accepted by society in general. That’s pressure!
