Do You Think “My Better Body, My Better Self”

Posted Dec 12 2012 6:48am

How much are you worth? Self-worth, that is.

How do you measure your self-worth, especially if you are an overweight person?

Are you on that never-ending quest for a better body so you’ll have a better self?

Do you

•    check your fatness
•    compare your body size to other people’s bodies
•    frequently check your body in the mirror
•    see if other people think you’re fat
•    check your body in car and store windows
•    assess arms, legs, thighs, stomach, face for fatness
•    practice sitting and standing so you don’t look fat
•    see if your clothes can hide your weight

If you use any or all of these indicators as measures of your self-worth, please try with all your might to separate self-worth from your bad feelings about your body. Losing a lot of weight is much more of a burden when you have your self-worth riding on it.
