Crushing on this so hard right now.  
"I have a before body. So do you, and so does the man in the video, and Hugh Jackman, and everyone else you’ve ever met. People with before bodies climb mountains, fall in love, save lives, raise pretty awesome children, create art, play sports, and generally live happy, meaningful lives. I am proud of my before body, and you should be too."

From the article The Before Body on the blog No, Seriously, What About Teh Menz?

It's an interesting article particularly as I'd noted, with increasing alarm, that rather than pressures on women to be perfect lessening the pressure on men to also be perfect have been growing.

We're a bloody strange species...

Strange all right. You'd think we'd have learned, after all the problems with girls and women having body issues / eating disorders whathaveyou. The Female Beauty myth is expanding to include the male as well thanks to the power of advertising and the need for corporations to develop untapped markets.
