New Survey Reveals Nearly 1/3 of Moms “Hate Their Bodies”
Do you have a positive body image? Or do you hate what you see when you look in the mirror?
“The Today Show” recently conducted an online survey of more than 3,000 mothers and found that 21 percent of them used the word “hate” to describe how they felt about their bodies.
And the findings aren’t all that surprising. With all the celebrity moms in the news lately who have shed all of their baby weight in a matter of weeks, it makes it hard for the real moms of the world to feel good about their own figures.
The survey also revealed that almost two-thirds of women say they worry their partner doesn’t like their body And as pointed out above, two-thirds of moms also said images of Hollywood moms looking super-fit after having a baby make them feel worse about themselves.
“We live in a culture of judgment, and a culture that really expects women to be perfect and have perfect bodies no matter what else you have going on in your life,” pointed out Michelle Noehren, creator of the CT Working Moms blog.
But there was ONE bright spot in the survey - nearly a third of moms said having children made them feel better about their bodies – more confident and powerful.
