Re: INFOBUS: Eating Disorders & Body Image

Wow, I can't believe it's after 10:30 already! Tonight has been so fantastic and so many great perspectives and ideas... One thing i am going to do this week to boost my positive thoughts about food and my body is to actively think positively about bodies of all shapes and sizes and I find when i have positive thoughts about other peoples bodies - i have better thoughts about my own.

Re: INFOBUS: Eating Disorders & Body Image

When it comes to doing something practical, it can be a bit confronting initially when we really become aware of how we speak about food and to our body. If we don't challenge the negative things we are doing (ie body bullying, using food to punish or reward ourselves, being critical or comparing our bodies to others, not accepting compliments graciously) we are always going to feel the same.  At Butterfly, we like to encourage people to become Champions for Change with this issue - so many people are all over the negative stuff when it comes to body image and food and exercise... How refreshing is it to see someone is kind and positive about themselves and their appearance?  And it can be all of us!
