92: How Body Image Archetypes Can Help You Be The Best You Can Be

If you struggle with binge eating, emotional eating and food addiction, you may also have body image issues.  Your body image issues may keep you from doing what you want to do in life and keep you from being the best you can do.   Think of your body identity as a role or archetype you have chosen to play in your life for the time being until you are able and willing to be your best self. This is the way you’ve learned to cope with being in a bigger body.   Are you the rebel, wounded child or sexy mama?  Whatever role you’re playing it may be covering up the truth of who you are.   In this podcast, you will learn: How identifying your archetype may help you to see your authentic self. How negative self-talk just makes binging, food obsessions worse Why you can’t “hate yourself thin.”

Dr. Sharp’s expertise in this field of study is much needed and feels validating, especially for those who have experienced negative body image throughout their lives.

In this emotional and inspiring episode, Dianna Goodman — mother of Vance Goodman who joined EDNR in episode 63 — shares her experience as a mother, caretaker, and human watching a loved one struggle with an eating disorder for years. Dianna shares her pain, frustration, and joy as she recalls navigating her daughter’s physical and emotional symptoms, accessing treatment (an even more daunting task 20 years ago), being told her daughter would not recover by medical professionals, her own sense of loneliness, and Vance’s full recovery. This journey eventually led to Dianna opening the Carolina Resource Center for Eating Disorders, a non-profit dedicated to supporting and helping those impacted by eating disorders — individuals and support systems alike.
