Survey: How Healthy Is Your Body Image?

We all have days where we wish we were a little skinnier, a little more tan or had more curves. Having those feelings from time to time is totally normal and nothing to feel ashamed about. As long as you generally feel good about how you look, you probably have a pretty healthy view of your own body. And that’s awesome! But not all girls (or guys) are so lucky.

When you’re feeling low about your looks, it’s important to remember that we were all created by God in His image. Our differences and uniqueness should be celebrated! If you’re ever feeling low about your body, consider praying on it and seeking out a trusted relative for advice and a listening ear.

Copy the questions below and then paste them (along with your answers) in the comments. 

1. How would you rate your general self-esteem about your looks, if 1 is pretty lousy and 10 is super strong?

2. What is the main body image issue you struggle with?

3. Do you find that many of your girlfriends struggle with their bodies? What is the most common complaint you hear?

4. Have you considered counseling with your mom, aunt, or other trusted relative about what you’re thinking? How have they impacted your relationship with your body?

5. Do you “alter” your looks in any way, and if so, how? (Dying your hair, wearing fake eyelashes, etc.)

6. What do you think defines a “healthy body image”? Who do you think has it?

7. Do you think having models and celebrities prominent in our lives makes it harder to maintain a healthy body image?

8. Is there anything about yourself, like healthy eating or exercise habits, that you’ve worked hard to maintain? How do you think this impacts your self-esteem?

9. How do you think we can work to maintain a positive relationship with our bodies?

10. What is your absolute favorite thing about your looks?

    1. How would you rate your general self-esteem about your looks, if 1 is pretty lousy and 10 is super strong?
    -91/2 :). on really bad days maybe an 81/2.
    2. What is the main body image issue you struggle with?
    -Right now that would be my hair because I dyed it black two years ago and I hate the color, though it’s fading.
    3. Do you find that many of your girlfriends struggle with their bodies? What is the most common complaint you hear?
    -That they’re too fat, or hate their hair (one of them is constantly dyeing their hair).
    4. Have you considered counseling with your mom, aunt, or other trusted relative about what you’re thinking? How have they impacted your relationship with your body?
    My mom and dad and relatives always tell me I should be a model and that I’m beautiful.
    5. Do you “alter” your looks in any way, and if so, how? (Dying your hair, wearing fake eyelashes, etc.)
    -I dyed my hair once, and I really regret it. 🙁 Other than that, no.
    6. What do you think defines a “healthy body image”? Who do you think has it?
    -Being happy and at peace with yourself, knowing God has made you perfect and you are fearfully and wonderfully made exactly the way God meant for you to be.
    7. Do you think having models and celebrities prominent in our lives makes it harder to maintain a healthy body image?
    -If people see them as a standard. They think that’s the definition of beauty, and therefore put tremendous pressure on themselves to look like that, or else they believe are somehow not worthy or less pretty.
    8. Is there anything about yourself, like healthy eating or exercise habits, that you’ve worked hard to maintain? How do you think this impacts your self-esteem?
    -I use moisturizer and wash my face everyday/use lip balms, skin care products if that’s what you mean.
    9. How do you think we can work to maintain a positive relationship with our bodies?
    Basing God as a standard.
    10. What is your absolute favorite thing about your looks?
    I’m naturally really thin with curves, so my figure, my clear skin, my blue eyes and my natural blonde hair. 🙂

    1. How would you rate your general self-esteem about your looks, if 1 is pretty lousy and 10 is super strong?
    Maybe like a 5 or 6 or 7
    2. What is the main body image issue you struggle with?
    I slouch and I’m super pale and I’m not a big fan of my figure :/
    3. Do you find that many of your girlfriends struggle with their bodies? What is the most
    common complaint you hear?
    “Oh my goodness I’m so fat!”
    4. Have you considered counseling with your mom, aunt, or other trusted relative about what you’re thinking? How have they impacted your relationship with your body?
    Not really. Sometimes after I actually put my hair in a decent bun my mom will say that my hair looks gorgeous.
    5. Do you “alter” your looks in any way, and if so, how? (Dying your hair, wearing fake eyelashes, etc.)
    I bleach my hair with sun-in stuff. Not many people can tell, though. I first started in like 5th grade and it gradually changed from poop brown to a blonde/brown/red color. I first dyed it because the brown color made me look very pale and people in my classes always joked with me about my skin tone. Its color is sort of hard to describe, but once my friends and I were in a conversation about dyed hair and I brought up the fact that mine is dyed and all of them said that they wouldn’t have been able to tell unless I told them.
    6. What do you think defines a “healthy body image”? Who do you think has it?
    A person with a “healthy body image” would be someone who doesn’t worry about her looks and doesn’t fret about her looks every morning. This one girl at my school has a really healthy body image.
    7. Do you think having models and celebrities prominent in our lives makes it harder to maintain a healthy body image?
    I think it is unnecessary to put models who wear little to nothing and wear little to nothing in the media since many teenage girls are already having doubts about their image compared to other girls at their schools. The models are an unhealthy skinny and set unrealistic expectations for the upcoming generations.
    8. Is there anything about yourself, like healthy eating or exercise habits, that you’ve worked hard to maintain? How do you think this impacts your self-esteem?
    I’ve been working out daily and I also stretch a lot. I’m a dancer, so I have to keep my muscles strong and stay flexible. It impacts my self esteem because it makes me feel like a better dancer and that I get better every day.
    9. How do you think we can work to maintain a positive relationship with our bodies?
    I think we can stay positive about our body image by remembering God made us and that there is a reason that we look like we do.
    10. What is your absolute favorite thing about your looks?
    My favorite thing about my looks would probably be my hair. Even though it’s dyed, I love the color and it’s one of my favorite things to play with when I’m bored. It’s naturally straight and fine and it’s very easy to style when it doesn’t have split ends(;
