Get in motion: Feeling fat can be a result of actual overweight or feeling sluggish and not fit. Muscle tone and exercise of any kind wake us up and help us feel better. Start slow, if u have any serious or chronic medical issues, check with your physician, and then start to move. Like they said in madagasgar, the movie, you got to move it, move it.

Images Around Us: Something to think about: what kind of messages have you picked up from movies you seen? Tv shows? Magazines you've read? Ask yourself how these one-dimensional messages have shaped how you see yourself? You might want to take a look at ways therapists help female clients with this.
