These are actually British, so it's 0-4, 8 and 12 in America. This fights against the argument that men are to blame for the poor body image issues women have. We are setting ourselves up against the impossible. Men tend to like a "little meat on the bones" when compared to what women think is ideal. If women want this to change, it's up to us to change it. Demand that magazines use models who are a healthy weight and not airbrushed to look smaller. If the magazines won't do that, don't buy them.
Beyond that, focus on your health and being strong. If you eat well and exercise, you will eventually reach a healthy weight. It will also make you feel more confident in your body, regardless of what size clothing you're wearing.
