The First Step To Ending Your Weight Struggles

March 10, 2016

2:10:16#Tbt. January 1st, 2012. Nosara, Costa Rica. I hit a huge milestone in this shot. It was of my first vacations where I wasn’t stressed about food and my weight. I felt so alive and free.
I remember being able to lay on the sand and appreciate the sun, the water, my music,  and the birds. This was all new to me. Being away from home, and being relaxed enough to appreciate it.
For so many years traveling would terrify me because I didn’t have my usual healthy foods on hand and that made me feel so out of control. The diet plans I was on never told me what I should do if I go on vacation and try to have a good time. So leaving home would trigger me to a point where I would eat everything in site or nothing at all and could never appreciate the beauty because all I could think about was food and my intense fear of getting fat.
Things have changed since then. Only because in the middle of one the darkest moments of my life, I knew in my heart of hearts there had to be more to life than being on a diet and being thin.
Do you feel like you are constantly thinking about food or loosing weight? You don’t have to live this way! You are more than food and you are more than your body size. Trust me on this one.
Now I know you are probably telling yourself, “well if I was thin, I would be happy”. And most of the time that is true, except when that’s the only thing you are focusing on, the happiness and fulfillment is very short lived.
How about you stop telling yourself, “this time the diet will be different”. If it actually worked you would not be trying a new one. Right now. This very moment.
I want to tell you, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. There are hundreds of other women who struggle with food just like you. And there are hundreds of women who struggled with food and don’t anymore because they found a way out.

My tip (with a tight hug) for you today: 
Make a PROMISE to yourself to end the war that’s working against you. That’s where it all starts. Stop doing what is failing you (dieting, restricting, counting calories,) and you have already started your process of changing your unwanted habits with food and falling in love with your body.
