Ok. So I go to an all girls school. Of course half these girls are petite and eat super healthy and exercise as if they are training for a marathon, counting every last calorie they consume and won't eat anything with a drop of sugar in it. I'm around 5 foot 3 inches tall and weigh 170 pounds. I'm not huge but I'm not tiny either. I could lose a few pounds, but the thing is, is that I am just comfortable being me. I like my size. I don't want to be super skinny. I eat what I want and I count my barn work and riding as exercise. I feel ok around my super skinny friends and I'm not afraid to tell people any of this. But then there are all these girls that act like if they aren't a size zero that the world is going to end. I mean we all have some sort of self esteem issues. It comes with being human, but I just don't get why more girls around my age, 20, just aren't happy being themselves. No one seems happy in their own skin these days and it kind of saddens me :(
Maybe all people need some self esteem boosters from horses. I know that my self esteem raised so much when I started working with horses. Does anyone have any opinions on this subject?
