My Body, My Self 

The ultimate goal in having a positive body image is to feel comfortable in our skin.  Part of the paradigm shift we hope to achieve is accepting our bodies unconditionally.  In my blog Grandmothering Yourself I spoke of loving yourself unconditionally as your grandmother would have done.  But, there is a further step to feeling comfortable in your skin, you actually have to believe your body is not flawed.  How is that to be done, if 80% of us feel that there is something wrong with our bodies, that we are flawed from a standard? (Discussed in Flawed from What?)  How can we do that if most of us believe deep down that we are only lovable or acceptable at a certain weight we either maintain by living in food prison or that we hope to get to someday when that diet actually works?
