I beg you. Don't buy the mags with the fat shaming on the front, don't click the link with Kim K's rear on it (seriously, she is tiny in real life) and don't buy a size smaller then you are in embarrassment at what the till people will think of your actual size (just me?).

Fattist folk are just unhappy people. That's the truth of it. Happy people don't have prejudices because they don't spend their time fixated on the people that surround them. They just live their own happy lives. All prejudice comes from a deeply unhappy place inside ourselves.

Eloise Hendy

This hoax may purport to play on our collective gullibility and Twitter-trigger happiness, but it actually plays straight into the mental vulnerability of our society's young women, who are already overly bombarded by images of hollow cheekbones, washboard stomachs and thighs that don't meet. It is hardly newsworthy that this hoax had us collectively fooled.

Are my clothes shrinking in the wash or what? Following non-stop dinner and cocktail parties over the Christmas/New Year period - with over-indulgence in food and drink and little rest - the evidence is now on display.

This is indeed a powerful lesson as we reflect how many people willingly head towards pain and suffering to avoid boredom. They will eat too much, get drunk, take drugs, behave violently or abusively, in fact indulge any impulse-no matter how self-destructive-to avoid or alleviate the emptiness of boredom.

Sadly borderline starvation coupled with teenage angst and confusion don't make for a happy marriage! Luckily the older I got the quicker creativity obliterated my delusions of Barbie but with forty percent of nine year olds reportedly being unhappy with their looks, the problem lives on.

Like many women, my attitude to my weight and body shape is fairly complicated.

Never.
