Perception and Ruby Episode
Friday, June 25, 2010
So today I decided to try the "test" they did on the one episode of Ruby where they drew themselves as they thought they looked and then they traced them to show what they really look like. Well it's an eye opener. Like all of them, I drew myself bigger than I really am. I knew I had a distorted view of myself because people would tell me so but now that I have it "on paper" it shows me what I see vs what everyone else sees.
So now I just need to figure out how to change that "inner perception" to start feeling better about myself. I bet a lot of other people that struggle with weight have the same distorted perception of themselves like I do so I suggest trying the exercise to see if it helps you feel better about what other people are seeing.
I'm hoping that the drawing comes out in the blog... the purple outline is the way I saw myself and the black is what I really look like.
Hope everyone winds up being smaller than they think!!
