Body Image and Eating

 

It can start as a desire to lose a few pounds.

It can start as a way to have some control in our lives.

It can start as a way of dealing with issues we don’t want to face, or don’t know how to face.

It can start as a way to be more popular, or feel more accepted by our peers.

It can be another goal in striving for perfection.
