Re: Distorted self-image? Any techniques helped you? Racer

I wish I had an answer. If I have a distorted body image at all, it's in the positive direction. If I think about it, I remember I'm fat and ugly and look like my mother. If I really look in the mirror, I remember it. But my self image is of the young girl I used to be.

My husband on the other hand used to be quite overweight but now is trim and very attractive. He never can get past thinking of himself as the boy he used to be, no matter what messages the mirror or anyone else gives him.

I wonder if there's a set point to our body image. We figure out what we look like at some point and no amount of information changes the core belief.
