Welcome to the Weight Debate.

What do you see when you look in the mirror?What does the mirror tell you?

Over the years I’ve watched with growing dismay as the pressure for an ideal body size has become one of the biggest issues of our time.

I’ve observed how men, too, are increasingly pressurised by these same ideals. I’ve seen a surge in eating disorders encompassing all age groups, especially older women. All alongside an explosion of social media – multiplying the pressures hundredfold.

What can we do? And what is really going on here?

I don’t have all the answers.

But I know that we can inspire change in the way we think and feel about our (and others) bodies.

I believe knowledge is power. Therefore we must educate, interact and encourage each other.

So this page is dedicated to offering the widest range of views on the weight debate.

It’s a page seeking to highlight writers – each bringing their own unique insight and experience of the ‘weight debate’. Writers with passionate opinions and specialist knowledge of our culture of ‘thin’.

Including me.
