Positive body image isn't believing your body looks good, it is knowing your body is good, regardless of how it looks. - How do you feel about your body? - Have you ever stayed home from a social activity or other opportunity because of concern about how you looked? - Have you ever passed judgment on someone because of how they looked or dressed? - Have you ever had difficulty concentrating on a task because you were self-conscious about your appearance? Our beauty-obsessed world perpetuates the idea that happiness, health, and ability to be loved are dependent on how we look, but authors Lindsay and Lexie Kite offer an alternative vision. With insights drawn from their extensive body image research, Lindsay and Lexie-PhDs and founders of the nonprofit Beauty Redefined (and also twin sisters!)-lay out an action plan that arms you with the skills you need to reconnect with your whole self and free yourself from the constraints of self-objectification. From media consumption to health and fitness to self-reflection and self-compassion, Lindsay and Lexie share powerful and practical advice that goes beyond "body positivity" to help readers develop body image resilience-all while cutting through the empty promises sold by media, advertisers, and the beauty and weight-loss industries. In the process, they show how facing your feelings of body shame or embarrassment can become a catalyst for personal growth.… (mere)

I have so many thoughts regarding this book. On one hand, I appreciate the topic and wholeheartedly believe it offers a much-needed discourse in our beauty-obsessed world. But I wish the content hadn't been explored in such broad, black-and-white strokes. Makeup, for example, is a multifaceted tool, but it's dismissed as a petty, validation-seeking, expensive pursuit. There's no mention made of all its other uses: self-expression, creativity, artistry, a way to honour cultural traditions, or simply because it brings great joy. The assertion that its use is solely for external validation is so limiting. And don't get me started on the authors' assertion that men don't suffer from body-image issues. That's ridiculous beyond belief.

The authors shine when addressing the way we're all caught in the relentless cycle of diet culture and the dazzling world of social media #fitspo and #thinspo. Their insights are wonderful for those looking for advice on navigating the societal expectations of physical perfection coming at us from every direction. This is also a great resource for parents looking for guidance on how to support pre-teen and teenage girls with body image issues. (Again, parents of boys will need to look elsewhere.)

While the Kites' message is commendable, wading through the book was a challenge. I found my eyes glazing over constantly, and staying engaged in the message was a struggle. A touch of lightness, some interesting anecdotes, perhaps a few interviews... these could have all made the content more easily digestible.

Overall, this is a worthwhile read, especially for those new to the conversation about body image issues and the impact of social media on the way we view our worth. For veterans of the body positivity movement, however, it might feel like this is a refresher course rather than an advanced seminar. ( )

Worth a look - I definitely learnt things. We all fall into traps about objectifying ourselves and others - something I hadn't really thought about. ( )

Positive body image isn't believing your body looks good, it is knowing your body is good, regardless of how it looks. - How do you feel about your body? - Have you ever stayed home from a social activity or other opportunity because of concern about how you looked? - Have you ever passed judgment on someone because of how they looked or dressed? - Have you ever had difficulty concentrating on a task because you were self-conscious about your appearance?
