I recently started doing a workbook. You see I really wanted this workbook that was recommended to my by my therapist. My best friend knew I was struggling with a poor body image and I have been for as I have for as long as I can remember. Well for my birthday in April 2011, she bought it for me.
Yes, I know I’ve had this book for over a year, and I haven’t gone as far as even opening the dang cover. I suppose you could say I was scared.
A body image workbook….sounds like I’ll have to think about the thing I dislike the most….myself. That doesn’t sound fun, not even one bit. I am mean enough to myself about my looks as it is and now I’m supposed to do a workbook and describe the things that bother me. That kinda sounds like a recipe for disaster. Or maybe you could say I just wasn’t ready to face these fears.
Now, I’m not saying I’m ready yet, however I did ransack my apartment looking for this very book the other day. For some reason I wanted it. I wanted to see what it was about.
The introduction was interesting. It wasn’t trying to sell you on reading this book and that it would be a magically cure, but more so that everyone is different and that some may get more or less out of this book then others. I liked that it was real and honest not some hoax trying to get you to buy into it.
So that’s where I started. It’s called The Body Image Workbook by Thomas Cash. It was capturing my attention and I shall continue to read it. Stop back for more updates!
