“Love Your Selfie. On Today’s show Hoda and Kathie Lee are talking about loving yourself and who you are. Body image, woman believe scars, extra fat and cellulite make them ugly. Learning to accept and embrace yourself, to love yourself again by looking and the mirror should be cathartic not something you avoid and criticize. Are you a violator?
Your body is not a death sentence
How you feel on the inside is what matters. A healthy self-image can take some adjusting to create. Some of us use humor to criticize our bodies, dimples, pudge, dark circles, things that we know exist but things others may not even notice about you. Drawing attention to it in public doesn’t help.
Passing low self-image on to your kids
Toddlers, children and teens learn at an early age just how their parents, relatives and caregivers really feel about their bodies. The kids take on this same message, and take it to heart themselves and the beat goes on.
The ideal is to see people on the inside, building confidence and changing minds
Kathie Lee says when she is not on the air, she doesn’t think about body image at all. Hoda says it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Everyone is beautiful, and it’s sad that advertising and comments from people around you can make you feel less than adequate.
When was the last time you smiled back at the mirror
The average woman in America right now, is a size 14. Mannequins in the store are a size four. So what fashion is mirroring back to us is not realistic. To create a mannequin that looks like a real woman would be a healthier image in society.
Redefining what beauty looks like
Some people are quite short, missing limbs, taller, plus sized, and feeling good on the inside comes from being able to look around and see there are others like you. Knowing you are not alone. A size four mannequin is setting the self-image of the majority of the population to fail. It’s not reflecting positive affirmation at all.
