'What Not To Wear': Psychologist Suffers From Body Dysmorphia (VIDEO)

The latest target of "What Not to Wear" was a 44-year-old psychologist. Ironically, considering her profession, Liz suffered from a rather severe case of body dysmorphia. She was not only convinced that she was considerably larger than she actually was, but she also believed that her body was disproportionate. Stacy London and Clinton Kelly were determined to set her straight.

For years, she'd been hiding herself under large, baggy clothes with wild patters in the hopes of distracting people from the shape of her body underneath the fabric. So they slimmed her look down and forced her to see herself for what she truly looked like.

"I will say, proudly, I am so not a size 14," Liz marveled. "I don’t think we got anything in a size 12, even."

"You’re an 8/10," Kelly told her.

The transformation was so profound that Liz found herself seeing clearly. "My body image has changed so drastically," she said. "I feel so good about myself and about my whole body."

See more amazing transformations every week on "What Not to Wear," Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
