love yerself by shesbiketuff love yerself by shesbiketuff
self portrait


I started the Love Yourself Campaign back in 2007. The campaign is a protest to unrealistic standards of beauty set by the media. Every minute of every day we are bombarded with images of what is considered "perfection". We compare ourselves and even grow resentful of the one and only body we were given. The Love Yourself Campaign is an on-going worldwide art project that promotes positive body image for women and men. We are all beautiful, so why not show the world and the media that we are comfortable with the way we are.

It is time for us to stand up to false images of beauty and become comfortable with and proud of our bodies!


Would you like to participate in The Love Yourself Campaign? Here's how!

Please send a photograph of you or somebody you know to loveyerbody@yahoo.com
Include your name and city/state with your e-mails please!

The phrase "start a revolution, stop hating your body" must be included somewhere in the photograph, whether it be on the body itself or not. The images should not be altered in any way being that it is a love your body campaign and should represent you for you! Be creative with it! And if you like, you may add a short statement to go along with the image you submit! I am looking for all shapes, sizes, colors, male or female!

Inappropriate or pornographic images will not be accepted. Plain and simple.

Spread the word! Start a Revolution, Stop hating your body!

Find us on Myspace
and
Facebook!

If you have created a photo for the campaign, feel free to upload it onto our Facebook group! The more submissions the better!

This is great, as well as the message.
But I can't feel this whole-heartedly, because
the girl in the photo has a flat stomach.
Many girls in society today (including me)
always feel overweight, and while this is great,
the girl has a perfect body.

I was absolutely thinking the same thing. What's not to love about this body?

Thank you so much for these inspiring words. :heart: ( I really needed this). Im a bit of a hypocrite, whenever my friends put themselves down for how they look, I always feverently tell them that they are beautiful and perfect the way they are ( b/c its true!! :love: :heart: ). But, for some reason, when it comes to myself its much more difficult for some reason. But with every passing day I try harder and harder, and I know that one day I will get there! :nod: I plan to joing the movement asap! Thank you for starting a revolution friend, and inspiring us to be comfertable in our own skin!
