    Are there people who don't worry about this?

    is there such a thing as people never worrying about their diets or weight management? I mean, coming from a background where food is an issue, this kind of viewpoint seems impossible to me, but in general, is it possible for some people not to worry about these things? I mean there's always so much in the media about fad diets and exercise routines and the best way to drop "X" amount of weight in "x" amount of time, but do any of you never worry about this? Or does everyone "worry" to some extent b/c they want to be healthy (as one possible reason) but they don't take it to the extreme where their thoughts about diet and weight management are "abnormal" or out of control or unhealthy?

    Are there people out there who just don't care? If you do pay attention to this somewhat, how do you not let it rule your thoughts 24/7?? I guess a lot has to do with being happy w/ who you are as a person, in spite of the physical appearance...

    what does everyone think???

    I think that's probably a big part of it...

    As I have gotten older (42) I watch what I eat for two reasons, one is for a nice apperance, and the other is for my health.I do think about it on a daily basis, so I can splurge from time to time. It's kinda like knowing you need to drive the speed limit but you don't have to see the posted signs, because you've driven the road before and it comes natural.Does that make sense? (unless you are one who speeds frequently?)

    There are people who really don't give a lot of thought to foods, eating, weight and the like. I'm one of them. ;-)

    Before I developed an ed - or even before that - before I really started trying to lose weight, if I wanted the deep fried ice cream for desert at Mexicali Rosa's I wouldn't even think twice about not having it. However, even at that stage in my life I still thought about my weight. Especially when high school started. I was a small child who never thought about weight or dieting, I started to gain some weight as a preteen, and I still didn't think about weight or diet, and then sometime in high school my self esteem dropped, I did think about my body image, and towards the end of high school I made a real effort to lose weight. I lost a bit of weight and everyone thought I looked great. But, after that, in university, it just excellerated.
    I'm not sure if there are any adults in at least Western society who have never, or don't think about their weight or body image from time to time. Almost every (or maybe every) woman I know has thought about it enough, but not enough to develop an ed. Some people are comfortable enough to make jokes about their own bodies without any major concerns and without being self conscious, but the THOUGHT is still there.
    So, I can't answer your question exactly unless I interviewed a lot of people. However, I never thought about it as a small child. Maybe children are just so innocent, and unfortunately this innocence gets taken away from them sometimes. And you're right - socialization plays a major part in this.
