What do you do when food is no longer your friend?
There are moments when
you don’t want to binge, but you do it anyway.
you don’t want to eat__________ but you eat it anyway.
you don’t want to obsess and restrict, but you do it anyway.
Recently, I have been challenged with some health issues. Because of this I am making changes with my food.
YIKES! No one wants to let go of their favorite foods... especially not me!
There wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t worry about food. I was constantly monitoring what I was eating. If I wasn’t monitoring, I was binging to balance out the days of restricting. I was worried about eating too much and wondering how much food I could ‘get away’ with eating that would keep me losing weight or at status quo.
It's raining, so Aspen and I are home making chocolate yumminess!
Days like this, I am so happy to not fight my food anymore. I once thought that I'd never be able to eat chocolate or sweets without binging on them. I was afraid of food and that I'd never stop eating the sweets. I'm so relieved to have enjoyed this moment with my son without all the crazy food thoughts.
Check out this recipe: I'll let you know how it turns out.
The first picture used to terrify me. If I looked at myself when my belly was relaxed, I would be disgusted, embarrassed and eventually beat myself up.
The second picture made me feel confident. I knew that all was okay with my body and therefore I could approve of myself.
The illusion is they are the same belly. They both exist. They are both me.
“ I learned how to slow down and listen to what my body wants to eat.”
“ I have stopped controlling every aspect of my life.”
“ I am willing to accept a compliment about my body.”
“ I lovingly created boundaries with my family around my food choices.”
“ I am more compassionate and kind to myself.”
“ I realize that it has little to do food.”
“ I am no longer binging and making food bad or good.”
“ I don’t feel guilty about my food and I actually like what I look like.
Here I am in full summer fun mode with my nieces.
Nothing was gonna stop me from the Slip and Slide.
That day my nieces, son and a handful of neighborhood kids spent 6 hours riding that Slip and Slide.
heir constant squeals of laughter were contagious. It was truly a magical summertime day.
And yet with all this fun happening, I couldn’t help but have a ripple of fear run through me.
I get overwhelmingly nervous about the messages these kids are going to be inundated with about their body.
They will soon be bombarded with social media messages telling them to shape up and slim down for the summer.
Oh God, my relationship to the scale could make or break my day.
The scale was not only a device to weigh my body, but it decided if I was worthy of self-love.
It decided if I was allowed to have a good day. The scale gave me permission to eat or not to eat. The number on the scale could drive me to tears and crazy dieting.
What’s your relationship with the scale? It’s our decision as to how much importance we are going to give the number that we see on the scale.
Check out this video for more guidance on how to deal with the scale in your life.
My new favorite PLEASURE!
Life is too short! I spent way too much time neglecting my desire for yumminess in my life. Saying no to food and sweets because I was bad if I ate them. So over it!
I’m not saying it was easy to let it go of the shame of Food.
But now, I’m devoted to expanding the amount of pleasure I can allow in my life. Pleasure is not just instant gratification. Pleasure is that deep listening to my body that tells me I am on the right track.
This yummy Booch Craft reminds me of how good it feels to enjoy life. No need to have Guilt and shame.
What are you letting yourself indulge in today?
Let me know!!!
PLEASURE is when we feel good about ourselves from the inside out. PLEASURE is sometimes a quiet whisper that says, “thank you for not eating that 3rd piece of cake or “thank you for taking a nap.” PLEASURE opens up our heart. It makes us more aware of life around us and within us. PLEASURE sex releases stress and makes our body tingle and feel alive.
It’s not your fault. Society has taught us to see ourselves as not enough. Our inner critic is programmed to look for weaknesses.
I used to beat myself up every day. I can remember standing in front of the mirror telling myself how ugly I looked. The deep despair I would feel from comparing myself to others. The constant inner voices telling me that I am not good enough.
