Although eating disorders aren’t purely related to how we look, mine was definitely triggered by my hatred of the way I looked and relentless bullying I experienced for years beforehand. My poor self-esteem and distorted view of the way I look has been an issue which has stayed with me for many years – but it wasn’t until recently/only recently I started to understand that unless I let go of the fears and hang-ups I had about being ‘fat’ or ‘ugly’ I’d never live my life to the full.
It’s for this reason that I wrote my book Tough Love about my experience with body image and Body Dysmorphic Disorder, and I regularly talk openly about the things I believe have caused us all to live with a warped sense of who we are. Here on the blog, videos, in my books and in keynotes I explain how I live with myself now, and share some of the things I have learnt which have made a massive difference to how I feel about myself and how I live my life in a healthier, happier way.
