Since my “research paper” is getting so much attention now. let me just clarify something ! This is a high school paper. Not that that doesn’t make it illegitimate. but the whole “what is magic to you” post was just a tiny tiny part in my essay where i wanted some personal opinions ! sorry for any confusion, i notices some people getting upset at the fact that the topic was too vague, it is in no way the basis of my paper but thanks for being so concerned !
A thing I discovered. When people found out i was struggling with body image issues they told me stop working out and eating healthy all the time. Well i took their advice and now I just feel lazy, inactive, and unhealthy. What i DID find was the treat in moderation and a light workout made me feel even BETTER about myself, more so than i ever did when i was “always healthy” or on the total oppostie end of the spectrum. Being happy is all about finding that healthy medium Balance.
It’s hard to stay body positive when the media keeps shoving size 10 waists with size 230492385 butt and boob sizes.
