Media and Body Types

Media and Weight

If you listen to what a lot of media seems to be saying, you may believe that there is nothing more important than being thin. Logically, we all know that this is silly and extremely untrue. Unfortunately, when we hear the same thing over and over it tends to stick in our minds. An idea can quickly and easily grow roots and it eventually become difficult to get rid of that idea. There is always a bit of pressure to be conventionally attractive and even though those standards are slowly changing, it can still be difficult to deal with the image that is constantly pushed on us. This is especially true when our natural body shapes don’t align with that commonly accepted image of beauty.

If you stand in line at a grocery store and look at the magazines, chances are you will see at least one with a cover that talks about how much weight this celebrity seems to have gained over the past few months or “easy tips” to lose weight. Instead of having actual news in these stands, it seems like it is nothing more than celebrity gossip, badly photoshopped headlines, and ways in which you could look better according to whoever writes the articles. While the media isn’t the only thing that we can blame for people feeling inadequate, the argument can be (and has been) made that it is a large part of the problem.

At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you feel comfortable and happy with how you look. For some people, this means that they need to be thin and that’s okay as long as it is done through healthy means. Others prefer to have a little more weight on them, and there’s nothing wrong with that either! If, however, you find that you can’t seem to get to be the size you want, then we may be able to help.

Love Handles

Love Handles

Sometimes it can seem impossible to actually love your body the way it is naturally. While we all hear the body positivity movements that are popular right now, it always seems to be much harder to apply that love to yourself than to everyone else. You can easily love all different body types, including ones that look nearly identical to yours, and love them, but when you know it is actually your own body, you lose that feeling of acceptance and love. It's natural to be more critical of yourself than others are of you, and when it comes to your body there's no exception.

One of the most common areas that people will complain about is their stomach and hips. This means that one of the biggest issues that people have is their “love handles”. No one loves love handles when they're the ones that have them. While we understand why they are called love handles, we also understand that a vast majority of people would love to get rid of them once and for all. The words you use about something can definitely have an impact on how you feel about things, but the fact remains that when you catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror and see them, you most likely want them gone.

When it comes to problem areas like love handles, it can be difficult to get rid of them. It is tough to get rid of any fatty areas you may have, but these are in a location that always seems visible. This means that you may be more conscious of how it looks every day. Even if you are making progress, it may be difficult to see that since you see yourself every day. What ultimately matters is that you like what you see when you look in the mirror. If you don't, then there's nothing wrong with asking for some help to get to that point in your life.

If you have an area of your body that you wish you could shrink down, like love handles, then we've got great news for you! With a simple call to ThinSculpting, you can schedule a consultation with one of our certified CoolSculpting technicians and work with them until you get a plan in place that will help give you the body you've always wanted. Call 800-8THIN-YOU today and let us help you find the thin that is in you!
