What are the fantasies you are holding on to about being thin?  To help identify them, fill in the blank: 

"When I'm thin ________."

Some common responses are:

  • I will be more confident
  • others will like me more
  • I will have the life I always wanted
  • I will accept my body and treat it kindly
  • I will attend social events
  • I will get noticed
  • my boss will take me more seriously
  • I will be attractive enough to go on a date
  • my parents will notice me
  • I will have more friends

What is ultimately behind most people's desire to be thin is a desire for love and acceptance. 

The myth is that thinness makes you worthy of love and acceptance.  Reality is that you already are.
