    Default Comparing other females bodies

    I was literally seconds away from joining a certain bootcamp (very popular ATM!) as the times were perfect for me...when I saw their latest facebook entry...
    Picture of two almost unattainable bodies and asking people to compare them and say which one you prefer.
    Gross.
    Left a very bad taste in my mouth.
    Thoughts?

    Yuck. If you're talking about the craze I think you are, the whole thing leaves me gagging a little.

    Personally that kind of thing leaves me feeling terrible. And it chips away at the pride i feel for myself after losing a lot of weight. Because according to so many people, i'm still disgusting, unhealthy etc because there is just no possible way for my body to ever look like that, no matter how hard i try.

    It would turn me off joining too.

    Good. Love being told I'm not overreacting.. Why the FUDGE would a 'company" (and I use that term very loosely) want women to get caught in the unhealthy trap of comparing OTHER woman to each other? Playing them off?

    Yep both those things would turn me off! No way would I join something that encourages judgemental, shallow behaviour

    And grammar/spelling errors are just so unprofessional.
