How Young is too Young to Start Caring About your Body/Weight?

teenagegirlRecently, a question came in from a 13 year old reader, Summer, who expressed discontent with her thighs. That question is posted below.

I wanted to do a separate post for Summer because many people may think 13 is just too young to be worrying about one’s body – and sure enough there was a reply to Summer saying just as much.

Sidebar: I put out a question on the facebook page asking how old people were when they first started trying to lose weight/eat healthier/look better. So if you’d like, chime in there or leave your answer in the comments section below.

On with it, here’s Summer’s question with my thoughts below:

I want a thigh gap and j don’t care about the people who are horrible with words just because of there irrelevant opinions I’m a teenager and I want a thigh gap and I want to get one by doing excerisse and diet the right way just like camille did. I’m a shorty to and I would like to look taller I’ve never had a guy like me and I’m not saying that this would make guys attracted to ME^^ but I’d like to fell like I’m on top of the world! For once I’d like to fell like people weren’t judging me because of my body figure I’m not really curvy but I have not really any it’s just muscle or fat in my thighs mu thighs are bigger because of the workouts I’ve been doing and I don’t like it at all and I’m definitely not fat I have a flat stomach but it can get a little chubby when I don’t watch what I eat I’m 13 and I want a thigh gap if anyone has a problem with that I really don’t care it’s my choice.
Camille I would really like a thigh gap and I need help I’ve looked at anything and everything and nothing has worked
I wanted to leave the school year feeling horrible and come back in august feeling slightly better about myself
I don’t have money because I’m 13 and idk where to get your book I looked it up on my nook/kindle and they dint have it
If you could reply that would be awesome

Kim-Kardashian-Pregnant-Bikini-Before-Giving-BirthAs you may know by now, Kim Kardashian has finally ushered baby North West into her world. If I know Kim like I’m led to believe I do, she’s itching to get her famous pre-baby body back. In fact, her closest friends have leaked how unhappy she has been with her pregnancy weight gain.

While there has been a recent backlash to celebrities slimming down so quickly after childbirth, with many proclaiming “What’s the rush?”, these women are simply utilizing a little known trick that everyone hasn’t been privvy to. The hack works like this: women have a small window of opportunity after giving birth to lose the stubborn body fat in our hips and thighs much more easier than normal.

It all comes down to hormones. When you’re not preggers, you store and hold on to fat in the lower body in preparation for when the miracle of life happens, which could technically be at any second. Your body operates in this manner even if it’s the furthest thing from your mind. Thus, it doesn’t give up the fat easily despite all your exercise and dieting efforts and you get the dreaded first on, last off phenomenon.
