How would you like to feel confident in your body today?

Disordered Eating

A mother who embraces self love, self respect
and self worth inoculates her daughters
against low self esteem.

Do you or someone you know suffer with negative body image? Do you or someone you know go to great lengths to avoid weight gain to find it just doesn’t seem to work?

Answer the following questions and let’s hope you aren’t one of the millions who this crisis affects.

  • Do you find yourself spending too much time thinking about food, body image, and/or caloric intake?
  • Do you have trouble eating with friends and/or family members?
  • Do you feel guilty after you eat?
  • Do you think you are fat, even though people tell you you’re not?
  • Do you feel uncomfortable eating at restaurants or in public places?
  • Do you hoard food or eat only in private?
  • Do you exercise to burn off calories but not for enjoyment?
  • Do you ever feel out of control with your eating?
  • Do you constantly worry about the weight, shape or size of your body?
  • Do you ever make yourself vomit after consuming food?
  • Do you weigh yourself more than once a day or after meals?
  • Do you ever abuse laxatives, diuretics, and/or diet pills?
  • Do you constantly calculate numbers of fat grams, carbohydrates or calories?
  • Do you feel like your identity and value are based on how you look or how much you weigh?

*If you answered yes to more than three of these questions, you may be struggling with a low self-esteem and body image crisis. It’s time to contact Coach Dr. Susie for a consultation to learn how to change your focus; stop destroying yourself; and feel better about yourself from the inside out.

  • I will stop engaging in the conversation when my friends compare and criticize their own bodies.
  • Remember that the sun will still rise tomorrow even if I had one too many slices of pizza or an extra scoop of ice cream tonight.
  • I will never blame my body for the bad day I'm having.Never allow a scowl from someone else to influence how I feel about my appearance.
  • I will stop judging a person solely by his/her appearance—even if it seems harmless —because it's not the way I expect to be treated.
  • Notice all the amazing things my body is doing for me every moment I walk, talk, think, breathe...
  • Quiet that negative little voice in my head when it starts to say mean things about my body that I'd never tolerate anyone else saying about me.
  • Remind myself that what you see isn't always what you get on TV and in ads —it takes a lot of photoshopping, lighting, photography, dieting, hair and make-up, hours, money, and work to look like that.
  • Remember that even the girl who I admire and even envy and think I want to swap bodies with in a minute has something about her looks that she hates.
  • Respect my body by feeding it well, providing it with moderate movement and activity when it needs it and knowing when to give it a break.
  • Realize that the mirror can reflect only what's on the surface of me, not who I am inside.
  • Know that I'm already beautiful just the way I am.
