I guess it would be kind of a lie to say that it didn’t.
The media is the reason we think skinnier people are more attractive, is it not?
So that’s the reason we’re surrounded by skinny people.
And that’s why I wanted to lose weight. Because I was tired of not being one of those skinny people.
The media didn’t have a direct influence on me, but society as a whole. I’m not trying to meet society’s standards, I just want to be happy with what I see when I look in the mirror. And that isn’t going to happen until the fat rolls are gone and the bikini is on.
