I am excited to share with you this guest post I contributed to my colleague Jodie Gales’ series on women and the body. This series includes posts from other great therapists who work with women’s issues and body image concerns also.

My contribution is a post about how we need to look deeper into how we feel about our bodies in order to find freedom from dieting.

“This is my body …And I live in it
And the weirdest thing about it is I spend so much time hating it
But it never says a bad word about me.”
