Why I Love Aunt B – An Essay on Body Image

February 7, 2009

Aunt B at Tiny Cat Pants wrote a post, “Where is Your Reward?,” in which she considers weight loss and the motivation to be healthy vs. be conformingly thin, and the response to that.

B says:

“And the great con is that, of course, there is no prize. It’s not that you’re not skinny enough or pretty enough or whatever. It’s that, in real life, no one is handing out great rewards for those qualities.”

It’s good stuff, and you should go read it.
