Body Image: It’s not about the fat.

Home/Healthy Home/Body Image: It’s not about the fat.

Body Image: It’s not about the fat.

Often, our body image is closely tied to our self-worth. People often say they “feel fat.”  But, is feeling fat a true feeling? Why do we associate a feeling with body fat?  I want to take time to appreciate the wonderful breadth of knowledge and insight that my good friend and colleague, Calene Van Noy, was gracious enough to share with me.  She is a dietitian who works with patients who have eating disorders, and she has great insight for these patients and anyone who struggles with body image issues.

Her words really resonated with me, and are so applicable to everyone. We all need a little more self-love and a little less self-criticism.

Health isn’t circumscribed by a number on a chart.  And it certainly shouldn’t be determined by a label we give ourselves or a label we think others are giving us either.

I hope you enjoy her wisdom as much as me.
