Have you ever binged on food until you were so full you could burst? Have you vowed countless times to stay on a strict diet regime? Have you weighed yourself every day and only allowed yourself to feel good f the scales moved in the direction you wanted? Have you punished your body with super restrictive eating, overexercising, or extreme lengths to get to your 'goal weight'.
If you said 'yes' to any of the above - I hear you. Loud and clear. Having a tortured relationship is absolutely zero fun and I would know because I spent several years of my life in a seriously toxic relationship with what I ate.
I saw food as a way to control myself - I looked in the mirror and hated what I saw and went to all kinds of lengths to get that 'perfect' body.
I never, ever thought I'd be able to say this but I now have a balanced and easygoing relationship with food (and I eat more healthily than ever!). In today's video, I'm sharing how I made the journey from food freak outs to nurturing nourishment....
One of the reasons a difficult relationship with food can be so difficult to let go of is that it's so riddled with shame. When I was struggling with my body image and obsessing over what I did or didn't eat I felt so incredibly isolated and alone. I thought I was the only one who hadn't figured out the food thing and everyone else just got it. I was SO wrong - since I started blogging and coaching I have received countless emails, comments, and messages from women who share a similar experience.
If you find yourself waging war against your body or controlling everything you ear, feel free to kick of your healing journey by sharing in the comments or in my Happy Healthy Inner Peace group. Shed some light on this subject and you'll not only be opening a door to your own healing but you might just give someone else the nudge they need to start theirs.
If you'd like a supportive space to let go of bingeing, guilt, restricting, punishing, or anxiety around what you eat so that you can love your body and nourish yourself with love, feel free to drop me an email and let me know, I'd love to help you out.
