No fatties!

I found this ad in a 1987 edition of Seventeen magazine. And all I can say about it wow, just wow. It's no wonder so many girls have fucked up body issues.

And for some reason, these body issues never, ever go away no matter how much raising our consciousness has had.

Eight pounds a week! Impossible unless you are starting at something around 300 lbs, which, I'm guessing, wasn't the case for the intended audience. Disgusting.

PENolan,
There seems to be alot of things that don't go away no matter how much our consciousness has been raised.

Sadly, the special "exercises" must have consisted of their barfing up their meals.

I was 16 in 1987, and have had eating issues since I was 12. Even though I am MUCH better now, the demon lurks around the corner and I can't seem to shake it completely. I will make every effort to ensure my two little girls grow up loving their bodies...Thanks, Monkeyman, for acknowledging this plight.

Dude, I HAVE to get on that diet! Looking like a starving six-year-old would be the awesomest!
