So why am I telling you this?  I suppose the point of this article is to actually encourage you lovely readers to check out the body acceptance movement.  On the whole it is wonderful, and while it doesn’t help me to accept my body, that is because of deep seated issues that I have to work through myself, and not the fault of the movement.  There are many body acceptance accounts that share wonderful content and it is always refreshing to see unedited images.  You may not gain the confidence to dance on the internet in your pants, but normalising diverse body shapes can’t be a bad thing right?
