How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: Don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works. Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight. Here are some things you can say instead:

i remember my mother setting poor examples but she was not afraid to cook with butter.

i love bacon and butter and salt and chocolate and chips. she never said “don’t eat that. you’ll get fat” and for that, i thank her every. single. day.

she just chose to make comments on herself in front of me as well as comments about women / men on the telly.
