Would the name 'Sparrowlegs' impact you body image / confidence - from @WeareGirlsinsp1?
This week we have a guest blog , perfect for girls ,on body image from Anupa Roper also known as ‘Miss Sparrowlegs’. Anupa lives in Leicestershire, UK with her husband and two children (Maya 11 and Ayden 10). She allowed the label of ‘skinny’ to affect her feelings, self-esteem and worth for a long time. Now she wants to empower the young by helping them to feel happy in their own skin. She would love for the generations that follow to know that their bodies are amazing and they are beautiful just the way they are.
So, first things first, what is body image? Body image is how and what you think and feel about your body. It includes the picture in your mind that you may have of your body and this may or may not match your body’s actual shape and size. Have a think, in your mind; is your body something you like or dislike? Do you ever wish you could change something about your body? If so, you're not alone. Lots of people feel unhappy about certain aspects of their appearance.
