Amy’s Body Image Tips! #1

For the next few weeks, I will be posting a few of my very own Body Image Tips that helped me get through the hard times when I was struggling with my own body image.  Here’s the first tip!:
1.  I was really struggling accepting my body.  I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror, and I couldn’t let go of the idea that if I lost a few pounds I’d feel better about myself and happier. So my therapist made be start off by being neutral.  I didn’t have to like my body, but just be neutral towards it.  Whenever I looked in the mirror, I would say to myself, “this is my body today, and it is what it is.” No judgment, no expectation.
