Recently she joined the gym and I heard her make a comment about how she 'felt fat in what she was wearing'. I have struggled and still am struggling with my own self image but I don't know how to approach this topic with her. I'm worried she sees herself differently that she is and that it might effect her health. I don't have much knowledge of eating disorders so I'm asking people with experience in a situation like this for help.
How should I approach her without offending her??
A mere comment about looking fat in an outfit is no reason to be worried. Leave her be. Underweight is like overweight. It could be hereditary, it could be by choice.
