You cannot look in the mirror without feeling sad or frustrated. Maybe you can’t look at all. You may even skip social gatherings, because you don’t feel comfortable in your own skin. Negative Body Image can lead to emotional distress, low self-esteem, unhealthy dieting patterns, anxiety, depression, and much more. No matter where you are at on the Negative Body Image continuum, as your coach, I can help.
Our eating challenges fall on a continuum. According to Webster, the simple definition of a continuum is “a range or series of things that are slightly different from each other and that exist between two different possibilities.” Imagine that I am holding up a long string. There are many different points along the string between the two ends. Just because you are not at one end/extreme or the other, doesn’t mean you do not struggle.
Many will think if they are not suffering from a clinical eating disorder, such as Bulimia and Anorexia, or haven’t been diagnosed with Obesity and related health concerns, then there isn’t a problem. However, if your mind is consumed with thoughts of food, body, exercise, etc., then you certainly have a pain-point. The great news is that you do not have to live this way. No matter where you are at on the continuum, I will meet you there and help!
