As part of our People’s panel series, we’d like to ask our readers to weigh in on body image issues, and tell us how they feel about their own self-confidence. Do you feel confident about how you look? Are you a serial dieter, or a “health at every size" enthusiast? What do you think the government could do to limit the damage that negative body image can cause?
If you would like to participate, please email Jessica Reed (firstname.lastname@example.org) before 12pm on Tuesday 16 January, with a contribution of about 200-300 words. Please include your Guardian username and your real name. We’ll pick four entries for publication. The subject line of your email should be “People’s panel” and you should include an element of comment – your opinion on the issue being debated. If you object to having your real name used, mention this; if not, we’ll print it.
