9781408828045: The Woman in the Mirror: How to Stop Confusing What You Look Like with Who You Are

Many women--regardless of income, size, shape, ethnicity, and age--are uncomfortable in their own skin. We fixate on our body image and try endless diets, implants, Botox, hair extensions, and new shoes, but it's never enough. The problem is that girls and women have been socialized to mistakenly conflate body-esteem and self-esteem. Body esteem refers to how you think and feel about your physical appearance: your size, shape, hair, and features. Self-esteem refers to how you think and feel about your personality, your role in relationships, your accomplishments, and values-everything that contributes to who you are as a person. The Woman in the Mirror goes beyond typical self-esteem books to dig deep into the origins of women's problems with body image. Psychologist Cynthia Bulik guides readers in the challenging task of disentangling self-esteem from body esteem and taking charge of the insidious negative self-talk that started as early as when you first realized you didn't really look like a fairy princess. By reprogramming how we feel about ourselves and our bodies, we can practice healthy eating and sensible exercise, and focus on the many things we have to offer our family, community, and job. Bulik provides us the tools to reclaim our self-confidence and to respect and love who we are.

About the Author:

Cynthia M. Bulik, Ph.D., is the William and Jeanne Jordan Distinguished Professor of eating disorders in the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, professor of nutrition at the Gillings School of Global Public Health, and director of the UNC Eating Disorders Program. She has been featured or quoted in Vogue, Newsweek, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal. She is the coauthor of Runaway Eating (with Nadine Taylor).

Review:

The Woman in the Mirror is all of us, and this compelling account of how feelings about our bodies affect us throughout our lives is filled with inspiration and hope. Food for thought indeed * Susan Ringwood, Chief Executive of Beat, the UK's leading charity supporting people with eating disorders and campaigning with them * Bulik has absolutely exposed the 'can't-talk-about-it' cultural facts of life for women and girls regarding how they feel about their body. The Woman in the Mirror is a wonderful book, written in language that speaks to all, and is a serious-must read * Lynn S. Grefe, president and CEO of the National Eating Disorders Association * For a variety of reasons, some women obsess about their physical shape and appearance, many believing themselves woefully wanting. The Woman in the Mirror suggests reasonable and practical ways to defuse this kind of destructive thinking, and have happier, more productive lives * Marianne Legato M.D., author of Why Men Never Remember and Women Never Forget * Bulik's practical advice-grounded in evidence-based research and coupled with the experience and wisdom of a woman, mother, teacher, and clinician-give the reader an untethered look at the reality of how both our biology and environment contribute to devastating eating disorders and other problems with self-image. Brava! * Chevese Turner, CEO, Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA) *
