Body Image

Tuesday, August 07, 2012
I am continually amazed by the distorted body images of many of my clients. As I outlined the 3 voices of the body in The Pancreatic Oath: the scale, the mirror and the glucometer; I did not take into consideration that some individuals are blind to the reality of their own reflection. Some obese clients stand before the mirror and see a thin individual, a need to “drop a few pounds,” perhaps or “no one ever said I should lose weight.”  It is the opposite with bulimics and anorexics. They look in the mirror and see morbid obesity yet they may only weigh 90 pounds. Both are distorted views and extremes that are unhealthy and abusive to the body. The key is to see your true reflection and then do something about it.
