97% of Women Will Be Cruel to Their Bodies Today

2/11/11

{for some reason Glamour mag is really surprised and shocked at the news}

For some, such thoughts are fleeting, but for others, this dialogue plays on a constant, punishing loop, according to a new exclusive Glamour survey of more than 300 women of all sizes. Our research found that, on average, women have 13 negative body thoughts daily—nearly one for every waking hour. And a disturbing number of women confess to having 35, 50 or even 100 hateful thoughts about their own shapes each day.

If a man talked this way to a woman, it would be considered relationship abuse. So why do we spew such venom at ourselves? Brace yourself and listen to the real thoughts of women Glamour surveyed.

“Fat-ass. Lazy bitch. I hate my thighs. I hate my stomach. I hate my arms.”

“Don’t eat that. You could probably use an eating disorder.”

“Your stomach is fat. That is why you are alone.”

“Oh my God, look at her waist and legs! We’re the same height. She looks like a model. I look like a lumpy sock.”

“You’re obese. All the pretty girls are size 2.”

“I can’t imagine anyone wanting to have sex with this.”

“Scrawny and messed up.”

“You’re bigger than her. Fatty.”

“Big nose, disgusting skin, bags under eyes, ugly feet, small breasts.”

“Please don’t let my size 00 coworker notice this huge gut I’ve been cultivating.”

“You look like an Oompa-Loompa.”

“Huge legs, fat stomach, not pretty enough to attract anyone, ugly in comparison to others.”

“I look disgusting with my cottage cheese legs and stretch-mark hips. Nasty. No one would want to touch me.”

“I’m ugly. Too skinny. Look sick.”
