We are constantly bombarded with:
Do not mistake this post for throwing health out the window or not caring about how you feel and look for yourself or your health or whatever else this could be twisted as
I’m saying that the MORE we trust, honor, love, listen to, and care for our body then the MORE she responds to our efforts
If we only focus on changing external factors, it’s easy for internal variables to fall by the wayside
Many people then judge themselves, compare themselves, or even live in a constant state of “never enough” because instead of standards being set on nourishing & trusting the body it is set on numbers and societal driven standards or expectations influenced outside of us instead of from within
You can want to change your body and want to develop a new lifestyle
But the root of this change needs to come from a loving place—otherwise you will find yourself with many more internal battles to overcome
I have girls who come to me saying they “wish” they could just have 1 cookie instead of 20, be able to feel at peace at a party around food, not want to run out of their house everytime they think of the food in the kitchen, trust and even have hunger cues, be able to have an intuitive meal or day without turning it into a free for all, stop emotions from driving their eating, and be able to look in the mirror and be proud or step on the scale for check ins and not instantly disregard themselves as a person, an athlete, a soul!
In order to make this happen, we must work against the patterns which created their current reality
It can be challenging at times and requires a conscious effort
But many of them, like you, have likely been consciously working to satisfy other external standards or expectations or patterns
Trust me, if you created the reality you’re currently living in and not loving or feeling empowered by, then you can create one that you love to live in and feel empowered by
