America is setting unreasonable goals for young women. All the magazines and trends that we are supposed to read and follow use models that are way too skinny. I have my own issues with weight and sometimes when I read Cosmo, I get to the point where I want to cry. I have always felt like I was overweight and I have struggled with it for a long time. I am trying to change that by eating better and working out, but the process takes some time and I still get upset sometimes. This image is a personal reflection of my thoughts on society and self image. I used the body parts of the stomach and heart to represent what actually matters. It is only important that these organs are healthy even though they don't necessarily look beautiful. Also the heart has been broken in order to reflect the negative and hurtful feelings that result from being told you aren't skinny enough.
