Re: My girlfriend and her distorted self-image
It sounds as if the media has her convinced that thinner is better. (Hell, it has a lot of us convinced of that!) Maybe you could suggest swimming (she possibly won't go for this) or cycling together. A bit of regular exercise will help her feel better in herself and can help her lose some weight. This will indirectly improve your relationship, and doing it with her will give her a bit more motivation.
Getting her to drink water when she feels like snacking also is benefical. The water tricks your stomach in to thinking that you are eating and you get full without snacking on chocolate and stuff like that.
