I'd say, 'What is your problem?  As we have seen in Chapter 2, our society encourages women to see themselves as objects.  Not only did the women select a thinner silhouette than the men,4 but when asked to choose a personal ideal, rather than a peer ideal, the women selected an even skinnier model.  They did offer me solutions like dying my hair or a workout or the use of this cream to take away cellulite.  A 1957 Page 33 article in Vogue entitled "How to Look Like a Beauty" cajoles women into taking action.

Women relied on girdles to achieve this look.  The mini skirt shifted attention to the legs, shaped by pantyhose.  All a woman needs is the "light Page 45 Figure 3 Firm Parts"' Workouts, December, 1994 firmness of Lycra® spandex"—she shapes her underwear, rather than the other way around.  This toned, "liberated" body takes a great deal of time and energy to create.  It requires extreme leanness and a good amount of testosterone, which most women just don't have much of in their bodies. " These rituals have proved to be a boon for the fitness industry.

But recently I put it back on. " Many of the women I talked with mentioned this fixation.  What can be proven are bigger profits and longer dependence on their programs.  54 Hazelden listed approximately 80 books at the beginning of 1990,55 including at least eight on compulsive eating, published during the 1980s.  In the next chapter, we'll look at how the fitness and cosmetic surgery businesses benefit as well.  One works on the triceps so that she can show off her arms in a new sleeveless shirt, another counts situps in order to reveal her "abs of steel" in a bikini.
