Do you have a problem with eating and self-image?
Many people have tried diets or have overeaten every once in a while, but if you feel your eating has gotten out of control, or that food is playing too big a part in your life, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do I constantly think about eating, weight and body-size
- Do I become anxious prior to eating?
- Am I terrified about being overweight?
- Do I know when I’m physically hungry?
- Do I weigh myself several times each day?
- Do I exercise too much or get very rigid about my exercise plan?
- Do I avoid eating meat?
- Do I eat when I am nervous, anxious, lonely, or depressed?
- Have I taken laxatives or forced myself to purge my food?
- Do I believe that being in control of food shows other people that I can control myself?
If your eating habits are the focus of your daily life, it may be time to get the support you need to make some changes. Campus Counseling can help you begin this process. Please contact our office to set up an appointment. Check for our additional resources on eating disorders
