Our body image (a.k.a. body esteem) is the picture we have of our physical body. It is an inner view of our outer self. It is formed by our awareness, imagination and emotions. It is ever shifting. Our body esteem not only depends upon our pant size or the number that registers on the “scales of injustice,” it can also shift depending on our mood, the environment, as well as the who, what and where of the day.

In other words, how we feel about our self and our body is psychological in nature. Our body image is NOT based on fact. It is learned.

Body image primarily comes to us from the dictates of culture. Advertisers and the media as well as our family and peers have manipulated our images of beauty.

Body-esteem is linked to self-esteem. Studies show that body image makes up about 25 percent of our self-esteem. If we are happy with our bodies, we are likely to move through the day with confidence and grace. If we are unhappy, our body language reflects this state.

When negative thoughts about your body surface, remember:

Body-esteem is subjective.
Body-esteem is ever shifting.
Body-esteem is psychological in nature.
Body-esteem is not based on fact.
Body-esteem is learned.
Body image makes up about 25 percent of our self-esteem.

Jean Nidetch, founder Weight Watchers, Dies at 91

Ready to Honor Your Inner Chubby Child? ~ contact Janice Taylor, Life & Weight Loss Success Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

At the age of 91, Jean Nidetch, the founder of Weight Watchers, died today (Wednesday, April 29). Reportedly a compulsive eater, overeater, closet eater, yo-yo dieter, who was addicted to cookies, Jean struggled with her weight until one fateful day in 1961 when she bumped into a neighbor at the supermarket who innocently inquired, “When are you due?”

While that comment may have stung (badly—ouch), it did put the weight loss wheels in motion. It was then that Jean gathered her similarly suffering friends and began hosting weekly meetings at her home. The group met and talked about their issues with weight, dieting and food. Amazingly, Jean went from 214 pounds to 142, and as they say, the rest is her-story! (Source: NYTimes)

Certainly, I owe Jean a debt of gratitude. It was at a Weight Watcher’s meeting some 14 plus years ago that Our Lady of Weight Loss introduced herself to me. And again, the rest is her-story!

So, thank you, Jean Nidetch, for being overweight, for struggling enough to do something about it; for gathering your friends, for conquering the beast, for paving the way for the rest of us to permanently remove those excess pounds!

People…If Jean can lose it, you can lose it!
