Achieving a Positive Body Image
copyright 2006 by Greg Landry, M.S.





Take a moment to close your eyes and visualize yourself. Is what you see an image that conjures up positive or negative feelings? Body image equates to our perception of how we physically see ourselves, and how we feel about ourselves. Yes we all have imperfections, but let’s face it that is what makes us unique, what make us who we are.

When we own a positive body image, we are comfortable with who we are, how we look and how we feel. A positive body image is one that appreciates the body for what it is and accepts the fact that very little can be done to change certain factors. Unfortunately, negative body images stem from unrealistic illusions that are obsessed over.

Since many feelings of a negative body image are based on weight, the decision to lose weight is a great way to begin the process of turning the negative into a positive. Starting an exercise regime that consists of weight training as well as cardio based activities is the best way to lose weight. Eating a healthy diet that is well balanced and low in sugar and processed foods is the second part of the equation to lose weight.

While we cannot all look like the airbrushed models on magazine covers, we can certainly feel good about who we are and make healthy decisions.
