I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    lol – Love this! Thanks for sharing.

    It’s a good reminder that no one can live up to those standards – not even the models who set them. The best we can do is love ourselves and embrace our own beauty.

    I’ve seen this before. Great video!

    hehe. I am so happy that so many more young woman are becoming aware that this isn’t what normal beauty is! and it isn’t what people look like!

    LOVE this video!!! Thanks for sharing Roni. Maybe if we KEEP sharing things like this, it’ll eventually sink in for many people who sadly have unrealistic fitness goals based on comparisons to unattainable (and artificial) images. Have a great Friday.

    That’s just awesome!!! What I hate is I wish is there was some way of fighting back with the magazines that do this. They shouldn’t be able to get away with it so easily. I will show my daughter for sure!

    I laughed out loud at the ending…
    “maybe she’s born with it”…
    “uhhhh no. I’m pretty sure it’s photoshop”

    Hi Roni,
    I have been checking out your blog because I am looking for interesting content for weightlossmother. I really appreciate your point about the standards of beauty. What do you think are some ways that women can maintain a healthy weight and not get sucked into unrealistic ideals? I would love to hear from you and to be able to share your story and content with others.
