This is going to sound weird…but when people say things like “You’re too skinny.” or “Why don’t you eat a piece of meat.” Or “You need some fat on your bones.” I feel SUPER uncomfortable! Mainly because I really don’t know how to respond.
I probably eat more times a day than the average person. I probably consume more food in volume than the average person. Yet, I’m constantly told I don’t eat enough, and I don’t know what sugar tastes like. Um, HELLO – I’m human too! Let’s set the record straight, I could easily sit down to a jar of peanut butter and chocolate chips and finish the whole jar if I made time to escape life long enough to do so, lol!
A healthy, toned body is a hard-won goal, and worth loving, but it can be hard to love yourself amidst an onslaught of critics trying to derail you. You can learn to love yourself and boost your self-esteem by letting go of limiting beliefs.
You can also learn to honor your body and love yourself through the power of affirmations and by eating with intuition, instead of counting calories (can I get a HELL YEAH!). This 4 part blog series will help you reconnect with your body, stop using food to fix your feelings, and find peace from emotions that leave you beating yourself up.
Part 1: How to let go of limiting beliefs about yourself
How are you talking to yourself? Being trained as a certified coach I’ve learned to really LISTEN to people. What comes out of people’s mouth is damn right mean. The things you say about yourself you would NEVER say to someone else. “My arms flap, my butt jiggles, my thighs touch, I’m a beached whale, that dress would NEVER look good on me, etc.” No wonder you don’t feel good about yourself!
Letting go of limiting beliefs and general negativity is SO important to supporting your mind. You will not feel good about yourself after you lose the weight, have 6-pack abs or even plastic surgery unless you love yourself the way you are today.
The following strategies will help you feel amazing in your own skin.
