Parental Influence on Body Image

I'd like to thank everyone for their kind words, stories, advice and support. I didn't expect such an incredible response and I apologize that I can't respond to each of you. Your stories have touched my heart.

I've removed the personal details of my story (frankly, I never expected it to get shared to the main page), in a nutshell I feel that my parents are pressuring my little sister about food and being thin, but since this topic has resonated I would like to encourage everyone to use this as an open forum to discuss the factors which have shaped our body images and personal relationships with food. Many thanks, Jezzies!
