One of my aspirations is to do my part in undoing the feelings of insecurity and incompleteness people feel in trying to measure up to society's "ideal" beauty standards. However, I find it quite challenging to live up to this ambition on a daily basis.  I still sometimes catch myself engaging in fat-talk and making appearance-based judgments in the name of "health" - when I know better.  I'm trying not to be so hard on myself because I'm fighting against years of hard-wiring to believe that skinny is the only way to be healthy or beautiful.  I'm going to get there someday and voicing my commitment is the first step to achieving my goal.
