I am 21, I am on the Dean's list, I expect for at least half the graduate schools I apply to to accept me, my partner is completely devoted to me, I'm getting married next year, 95% of everything I try seems to work out, many of my friends call me a feminist (in a good way), I volunteer at the University's Sexual Assault Centre and I know all about cultural myths that affect the way women think, yet I still stare at myself naked in the mirror and think about how much better life would be if liposuction was covered by healthcare.

Why is it that so many women have such a terrible relationship with their own bodies? Is it the media? Family? (In my case, DEFINITELY has something to do with my evil mother). How can women overcome such issues and learn to love all of themselves?
