This week I was talking to a patient in the office who had accomplished an amazing goal this year. She had lost 60 lbs. I was shocked to hear her say she didn’t feel like she looked any better than BEFORE. I knew that many people have a huge disconnect between what they see in the mirror and what they actually look like but it really surprised me. I have recently added a new technology in my office that helps people “repaint the picture” and close the gap on the image they have of themselves. This is a reality check that will help them be more successful in making healthy changes and give them the confidence to sustain them.
