Scan the latest crop of women's lifestyle magazines or websites, and chances are you'll be inundated with advice on how to achieve your best body — in no time at all — by filling your cabinet with belly-shrinking superfoods and stacking your day with the latest and greatest workout trends. And let's not forget that all of these messages will be bordering a gorgeous model. Even with the best intentions, we at POPSUGAR can unwittingly emphasize an ideal that isn't always realistic.
Tired of what she was seeing, blogger Anastasia Amour made her own magazine cover — starring herself! — that's full of empowering and relatable headlines, which send the message that there is no ideal way to look, feel, or aspire to be — simply that you are enough as you are now. While we have definitely seen a more positive turn in the media when it comes to body image, there's still a ways to go. Hopefully it won't be too long before Anastasia's mock magazine becomes something women everywhere can buy.
