Your body is a miracle.  All of the mechanisms and mechanics that go into keeping yourself breathing, moving, sleeping, exercising, walking, thinking and everything else you do are so intricate and are so automated that you  really don’t appreciate them.  Instead, you focus on tearing yourself apart, literally body part by body part.  How many times have you thought about or said to yourself, “I hate my thighs”, “I wish I looked like”, “If I could only cut this off”… This is only the beginning of what is being said and it gets even nastier.
