women have such an unhealthy body image that it becomes distorted.
That means that you look in the mirror and see an image of yourself
that doesn’t exist. You might think you are fat, when you’re
really underweight. You completely blow your flaws out of proportion,
or even invent flaws, and become so preoccupied with them that
your perception of yourself is unreal. This is a sign of a problem,
and if you think you have a distorted body image, it’s best
to seek help. That’s difficult for most women with distorted
body images, because they are so wrapped up in the distortion they
can’t acknowledge they have a problem. The most obvious issue
relating to this distorted body image is the development of eating
disorders. Eating disorders are serious psychological conditions
that can be extremely, permanently damaging to your health. Eating
disorders, if not treated, can be fatal. You might think that eating
disorders are for your daughter, or your little sister. But eating
disorders affect more and more adult women every year. It doesn’t
get any easier as you get older.
