Body fantasies definition
It’s when you believe that life will unlock all that you are wanting once you get the body that you consider to the perfect or at least good enough.
Also, it’s when you believe you put things on hold because you haven’t GOT that fantasy body, that illusionary body that will ALLOW you to be happy, healthy, and confident… and sexy lol!
Moreover, it’s when you obsessed about losing weight, reshaping your body, reducing your wrinkle lines, become optimally healthier, control your food so you can finally change your appearance, and unlock your dream life.
Furthermore, it’s when one of the most important parts of your personal life is about changing your body.
It’s when you put your life on hold until you feel deserving enough.
