I love the image of a floating head.

Tender, perhaps you can start with how different people protect themselves, often by creating more personal space with a larger body. I've done a lot of reading on trauma (of course) and weight is often one of the "symptoms" talked about. One of the theories is that it is a form of protection, unintentionally trying to keep people away from your wounded small self inside. I think we've all heard the self-esteem speeches up the wazoo but the idea of creating a barrier for myself resonates with me.

I agree with you about it being a tough topic to talk about in therapy. I don't want to call attention to my flaws (like he can't see them) and I usually cover myself up with the couch pillows.

I'm not sure what to say to you about your attachment. I'm the poster child for this, and I worry about it all the time. The few times I have relaxed and accepted it, it feels great. I just can't let myself have it. But I agree that talking about it has helped it a great deal. I hope you find peace around this soon.
