^Yes. When I look at my daughter, better to see a focus on building some athleticism and the curves that go with it, than to strive for thin and thinner. For most women at least, it's not a very achievable goal. Very few are naturally built like the tall and thin beauty ideal we see in the magazines. Of course, I've found that people with this hobby can always be striving for lean and leaner which can be it's own problem, but at least there's a focus on function and athleticism, an appreciation for what the body can do, and when it's done in a healthy way - self improvement and instrinsic motivation over living life in comparisons to others. That's a constant battle I think. With body image, and with everything really.
Nice to chat with you!
