Welcome to the Woman in the Mirror Blog

As I was interviewing women for “The Woman in the Mirror: How to Stop Confusing What You Look Like with Who You Are” (www.womaninthemirrorbook.com), I realized that every one of us has a mirror story to share. At some point in our lives, we have all had some experience that has led us temporarily or permanently to confuse body esteem with self-esteem. The mirror can be a foe, but it can also become a friend. In the book, I help women pave a personalized path to separating self-esteem from body esteem forever. I invite all of you to share your mirror stories here–not only the mirror horror stories, but also the uplifting mirror stories that illustrate how mirrors can be positive forces in our lives. I’ll also provide links to interesting mirror stories for you to reflect on. We welcome your reflections! To send me your reflections, leave a comment or email me here .

    So exciting! Another blogger and myself have done/are doing “mirror fasts” to help untangle our relationship with the mirror. I went a month without looking in the mirror; you can find a collection of my writings on the matter here:

    And Kjerstin Gruys, a sociology Ph.D. student at UCLA, is going a full YEAR without looking in the mirror! She blogs at http://ayearwithoutmirrors.com

    Looking forward to reading more women’s experiences, and the book itself.
