With all the Photoshop'd and filtered images you get bombarded with each day in the mainstream media and facebook,instagram,twitter etc.. you can sometimes get into the mindset that your bodyshape is inadequate and you'll never achieve your dream body.
Don't let these images put you off trying, most of these people in the media have never had to struggle with their weight or eating habits, they have more than likely trained all their lives since a teenager,have professional photographs taken with tons of filters and edited, plus work in the fitness industry or "mainstream celebrity" they also can afford a personal chef,trainer,nutritionist,asssistant.
Be happy with who you are, if you would like to change something about your body , take little steps at a time and you will achieve it.
