What Does Your Overweight Body Do For You?

Posted Dec 03 2012 5:00am

There you are, overweight. You’ve been this way for a while. You might have lost weight now and again, but for the most part you’ve been too heavy.

How do you feel about your large body size? And in what way does your large body size represent you?

Does your fatness mean that you are unlovable? Does it make you feel inferior, even worthless? Do you feel protected by having so much bulk? Does your heaviness guard against you having to feel vulnerable? Does it enable you to feel full and not have to feel empty? With a big body you might not have to worry about breaking into little pieces, emotionally speaking.

What does your overweight body do for you emotionally—both positively and negatively?
