30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 3 Thinspiration

A Picture of your thinspiration. What features do you like about this person?
Oh wow this is where the challange starts to get tough. For a start I don`t like the term thinspiration, because of the pro-ana conitations. Like google it and you`ll see what I mean.
And I don`t like the idea of idealising an image of someone else, because I will never be like that will I, not with my sagging skin and streach marks. My body image is already so out of whack, what with the life long pressure society and my peers have put me under, especially to be `thin`. And we all know thin =/= healthy body and mind.
But in thinking that I still totally do look at pictures of other women and be `oh I want to be like that`.
I wish I could put some strong looking atheletic woman you see around on spark people and be like `oh I totally want to be like that`.
But no I`ll be honest, I have nothing like that in my tumblr dashboard. The only blogs I follow that has any kind of pictures of female beauty is retro and vintage
Yeah I love Betty Page, Monroe etc. But of course these are still slim women of the time. But I`ll talk about what I like about this shot.
Betty looks womanly, sexy and confident. I`d be ok with that.
