When I look up body image issues, they all pretty much talk about seeing yourself larger then what you really are. However, a few years ago a singer talked about a body image issue she had where she saw herself a lot smaller than what she actually was. So, she was under the impression that she looked healthy, but was in fact severely overweight. I suffer from this. I see myself as "voluptuous" but when I actually see pictures of myself, I actually am several times larger than what I see myself. Has anyone else heard of this disorder? I appreciate all of the help that I can get.View Thread
