Thanks @lenadunham for bringing awareness to body positivity. @isabelfoxenduke & @katiedalebout discuss #notthatkindofgirl
-When you find yourself counting calories even when you don’t want to, actively stop yourself by thinking about anything but food.
-Keep in mind that celebrities are first entertainers and role models second. While they bring attention to these deep rooted body image issues most women struggle with in silence in and that is great, they do not aim to teach they are simply sharing their often flawed experience of being products of our society.
