Interesting article on body image...
Please move if you feel this is the wrong forum......
I just thought this was a great article
I used to perceive myself as having a terrible body and i used to feel really bad- just like the article suggests- when i saw ads with models in them. This was before i started lifting...
No longer does it bother me as my physique is now comparable to many of those you see in those ads. But i still have that dropping feeling when i see people- especially those around my age- have a bigger body than i do. Hopefully i won't feel that way for too much longer forever
anyone else feel this way?

good article, but it just scratches the surface.
i think most of us will never be happy with how we look...especially around those who are bigger, leaner, etc. the key is controlling that feeling into motivation, rather than let it depress you.
if you enjoyed that article, you should do a search on the "Adonis Complex" -- there have been some interesting articles written on that.

Never be happy with how you look, you can always improve. A fit body = a healthy body. learning that as I get older....

I think its a good thread and you are probably right that it belongs in the Lounge.
It would be an interesting study to determine why we find it important to develop to our bodies to their limits and then beyond.
Be it a Napoleon complex, Adonis complex, a fascination with the idea of perfection, Iím sure there are multitude of reason that we would be to support and argue.
Me, Iím just shallow. I still like to get looks and my choice of girls. At 47, itís a lifestyle.
