The holidays are an easy time to go HAM on sweets, which almost always leads to self-loathing. Maybe you're not happy with the way your belly jiggles or you're frustrated your jeans don't button so easily after Thanksgiving dinner.

The #BodyBeThankful campaign is here to remind us we should be grateful for the awesome stuff our bodies can do—and not get too worried about the way they look.
