Disclaimer: Before I start blabbing, I must specify that I am not a doctor. If you believe that you are presenting Body Dysmorphia symptoms, similar to the ones I mention here, please consult a therapist. On this post, I will just state my personal experience.
Most of us have something we don’t like about our appearance – be it our hair, our nose, our teeth, you-name-it. However, you’re not likely to even think about it for the majority of your time. In my case, I obsess about it for hours every day.
During the first months of my weight loss journey, I started to notice my body changing for the better. Clothes felt nicer on me, I was in better shape and people even noticed that I was losing weight. Unfortunately, those good feelings did not last long.
