Food for Thought – Body image is a Tough One

Most of my clients will feel better about their improved relationship to food more quickly than how they feel about their body. Try to remember that, just like it isn’t about food… it isn’t about your body either! When you catch yourself being critical about your body, asking yourself “What might this really be about?”

If you take this exploration far enough, you will likely realize that you are afraid that being fat means you won’t be loved by anyone and therefore you’ll be alone. That’s what needs your attention and love. Start by asking a good friend what they love about you. As best as you can, take in their positive words!
