Today I have a big question:
What do you believe about eating?
Is it supposed to be hard? Do you believe there will always be struggle? Do you believe that the body never will speak up? Do you believe that weight gain is inevitable? Can you “not stop when you’re full”? Are you just always going to be “addicted to food”? Can you just not “control yourself”? Do you “need portion control in order to eat normally”?OR can you see another way?
Can you imagine if you saw food as an easy pleasure? If you knew that you deserved as much as you wanted? If you trusted that your body could handle food? If you trusted that your cravings weren’t bad or pointless? If you trusted that your cravings were important, even? If you started to take it allllll less seriously?If you realized that the ease the some people have around food is possible for everyone.
Your beliefs about food and eating MATTER.
Your negative fearful beliefs got you where you are today, but being willing to shift them can and will get you out.
If you are willing to change everything you believe about nourishment, eating, metabolism, and your body, you will change your relationship with food. I promise.
But you must start by believing there is another way.
Start with this: Eating can be easy, and I am going to get there.
