1. If I change something about my body, I will finally like myself.

2. My outward appearance is the most important thing about me.

3. Everyone can look like movie stars or fashion models if they diet enough and work at it enough.

4. Attractive people don’t have any problems.

5. Being overweight is a sin.

6. I must compete with other women/men and look as good as they do.

7. My body is who I am.
