I love that you wrote this.

I think I am kind of in the same spot as you, concerned about how other people perceive my body but trying to redefine my goals for it in terms of what I have done and experienced and can do, rather than how I look passively through the lens of some very skewed beauty ideal. I find that the more happy things I do with my body, the less I care what other people think it looks like (although I always care more than I'd like to).

Hey, have you ever read The Beauty Myth?
