  • I am concerned for my sister Molly.
  • My sister thinks she looks like a monster,
  • but she's absolutely beautiful.
  • She just can't seem to face anyone
  • because she can't stand the sight of her own face.
  • People refer to us as twins all the time
  • so if she believes that she's a monster then so am I.
  • Molly has more issues with her jaw line, her cheek bones.
  • She hates her nose, her lips.
  • My issue tends to be more with my body weight.
  • The scale does make me anxious.
  • When I see the scale I think numbers and weight and fat.
  • I don't like to be more than about 115 pounds.
  • After eating pizza or pasta I feel like I can see it
  • immediately all over my body, my face, my cheeks get fuller.
  • My internal voice is always saying there's too much fat
  • in your waist, your thighs are getting a little big.
  • I try dealing with my issues by going to the gym
  • two hours a day, seven days a week.
  • I'd like more of a thigh gap.
  • They shouldn't ever be near touching.
  • I'm a perfectionist, it's never enough.
  • Being obsessed with my weight has definitely
  • had an affect on me.
  • If I make plans to go out with my girlfriends
  • I have to go to the gym before we go out
  • otherwise I will not end up going out.
  • I just feel gross, I don't feel like that I'm skinny enough.
  • I won't go out on dates because of the shape that I'm in.
  • I hope Dr. Phil can help me so that my obsession
  • with working out and looking a certain way
  • doesn't control my life.
  • Okay so you two actually share
  • some of these issues, right?
  • Yeah, I don't think mines to the extent that hers is.
  • I can still leave the house, I can still function.
  • When did you notice this about your sister?
  • Um, I mean I know she's always been insecure
  • about her appearance, her looks.
  • I've just noticed it you know getting significantly worse
  • especially the past few months.
  • Is that true?
  • Yeah.
  • Do you think you're withdrawing some?
  • For sure.
  • And what's causing that to happen now
  • instead of five years ago?
  • Um, I really don't know.
  • It just seems to be getting worse
  • like the older I get it seems like
  • it's gotten worse and worse and worse.
  • What's your best quality?
  • I think that I'm
  • a very caring person.
  • So you think you do care, would you agree?
  • I agree.
  • You think she's caring?
  • She's caring, she's a great mom.
  • She's really big heart.
  • She's genuine.
  • I don't like my nose, my lips.
  • You say you look like a monster.
  • What is going on?
  • I just feel gross.
  • With the women in this family?
  • I have anorexia.
  • Do you think you've modeled this for these two?
  • Plus Game of Throne's Sophie Turner's
  • own battle with body image.
  • I used to get a lot of comments about my weight.
  • I have like a big nose.
  • I just got very self-conscious.
  • I felt very alone.
  • All new Dr. Phil.
