“The Perfect Body” as illustrated by Olympic Athletes.
When my girlfriend forwarded me Dr. Lisa Wade pictorial from the website Sociological Images this week, I thought it was quite an interesting topic of discussion. It shows, as Dr. Wade pointed out, “a wide variety of strong, healthy women and men who pursue their sport to excellence.”
None of these images have been photoshopped.
The point– to show our children, that healthy men and women, who excel at their game, come in all different shapes and sizes. That there is no ONE perfect body. To love and embrace the body you were born with.
P.S. – The gastro stomach flu has officially taken us all down, one at a time, Godfather annihilation style. Both boys had it, hubby had it all night long in a hotel room on a business trip, I had it this morning.
Then again, we could be in Tokyo.
It definitely puts things into perspective.
