What Real Women Look Like

That's what MyBodyGallery.com showcases. I learned about this site today from Girls on the Run (which is an awesome organization that empowers girls by teaching them life lessons by training them to run a 5k). It was absolutely fascinating to look at all the different pictures...I think I'm gonna submit my picture to this project. You can sort by weight, height, body shape, and pants size.

Here's how they describe the project....In a world full of images of how we "should" look it can get difficult to tell how we DO look. Our hope is to build a site where women can see what real women look like. What we really look like. Most women have spent so many years looking at themselves in mirrors that we can no longer see what's really there. The My Body Gallery project's goal is to help women objectively see what we look like and come to some acceptance that we are all beautiful.

Thanks for linking to the My Body Gallery Site. Hadn't seen it. Of course, the first picture that pops up is someone my height but 56 pounds lighter. C'est la vie...

I love this project! I love that quote "most women have spent so many years looking at themselves in mirrors that we can no longer see what's really there". WOW! How true.
