Question Body Image HELP ME

Hi everyone. I decided to make a post here...not sure what else to do. I have to have one of the WORST body images around. I've been reading up on things and it seems as if this whole thing could be a disease. Something about you never really see yourself as you truly others see you. I'm about 5'6 and weigh 141...wearing a size 8-10 pants and a Small in shirts. I'm always saying negative things about me and always looking for a diet...and exercising like crazy. My bf has recently taken notice of my "obsession" as he calls it and thinks it may be becoming a problem. I just don't know what to do. I want to be thin...and to look good. I see all these thin women around and on TV and it drives me NUTS when my bf glances. How can I get past this...any advice. Like I said perhaps this doesn't fit in here but I don't know where else to turn right now.

I know exactly how you feel and yes, it is a serious problem. It is typically the beginning signs of some sort of eating disorder for many. I have a terrible body image. I am a size 6 and you would think I was a 16 to hear me talk (I use to be a size 16 and lost alot of weight, but still feel no better about myself). I wish I could think differently... just as soon as I am feeling "skinny" I see a picture of myself and boom, back to feeling horrible. You could try a counselor. Usually it is something else that is causing our poor body image... I know what it is for me, but it took me years to figure it out. Try talking to a professional to get to the bottom of it. Good luck to you!!!
