Skinny Thoughts Inc.

Are you or someone you know dealing with the pain, frustration and anger of not having a perfect body? Time to stop and realize that there is no one that can decide if your body is right for you but you. Rather than puking up your dinner, or even worse going without, consider purging out all those negative thoughts which tell you to diet, work out harder, and even go to unsafe extremes just to lose a few inches or try to change your shape. Instead, this design is as a reminder to take it day by day and find healthy solutions.

What do you think of this design?  What images and thoughts does it conjure up in you and how does it help show the world who you are?  Add to the conversation by commenting below.

Women are constantly bombarded with the idea that one, their entire self-worth is based on their appearance, and two, they had better buy tons of beauty products and diet aids in the pursuit of impossible physical perfection.

On the same note as Allison, I think this image conveys the opposite of what description below suggests of purging away bad thoughts. Instead of the constant body negative messages we’re subject to, the depression and unease that many victims of eating disorders battle came to mind. Often, it’s the underlying negativity caused by anxiety that fuels an eating disorder rather than a superficial need to be beautiful.

Although this piece is supposed to represent purging out the negative thoughts, the image itself still seems pretty destructive. The use of text speaks to the bombardment of messages we receive from the media, whether through social media, television, or magazines.
