‘I Love My Body’

As Obama shared her age and how she’s not as young as she used to be, she let Oprah and the audience know she’s still confident, declaring “I love my body.”Former first lady tries to be positive about her body image.

“I’m constantly judging myself too, just like everybody else,”She stated. The former first lady also admitted that it’s difficult to make change for all women because of the lack of information that’s out there about aging.

Although our bodies transform as we age, women just don’t have guidance about our changing bodies, especially when it comes to menopause.

‘Women, Our Bodies Change Drastically In Comparison To Men’

“Women, our bodies change drastically in comparison to men,” Obama reflected. “We’re going through menopause. We’ve got a lot going on and I don’t think we’ve done enough to understand what aging means for women’s bodies.”

“What are we supposed to look like? How are we supposed to feel? We’re not talking about that enough.”

The ex-first lady spoke out about how her body has changed, how menopause affected it, and how she looks after herself. She exercises and does her exercise to take care of her growing body. However, she pointed out to Oprah that the fitness industry doesn’t cater to older women.
