Ana, 29, is talking to Marc David, founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, about her desire to find contentment with her weight. What comes along with this will be a freedom from guilt and anxiety for her. The problem is, Ana is in a battle with herself, often going back and forth daily about thinking "I am who I am and I'm good like this" and "But I also want to lose weight". As the discussion goes a little deeper, we learn that this guilt around food can actually be traced back to a memory when she was only 2 years old! To help her relax into the journey, Marc invites Ana to befriend herself instead of battling herself. We see a playful shift that will allow her to accept herself, even if she wants to make changes at some point.
