This is a question that floats around the body-loving blogosphere quite a bit, and I always struggle with it.

When we’re young and struggling, our brains and hearts are very different … but perhaps a visit from our future selves would have beneficial impact. So, assuming it would:
If you could go back in time and visit with your teenage self (or grade school self, or college self, or any younger version of yourself), what would you tell her about her self-image? Her body? Her sexual self? Her personal style? What would you have liked to know at age 8 or 13 or 21 that you know now?
