I can smile about it now…my body rocks! Because I think so and I say so.
But before the idea of Sleeping Naked After 40 popped into my psyche, I hated my body. I was never happy with it or in it.
I never shared my feelings with anyone … and felt too embarrassed to ask anyone for help.
I wasn’t even sure what was wrong with me. I was out of control with my food. “Episode’s” as I referred to my out of control binges, would find their way in and out of my life at different times. I can describe being in an “episode” as a deep dark hole with no light and no rope. I can go on and on, but I think you hear me. I think you feel me.
I assumed I was the alone, struggling with my food. Trying everything. On a diet and off a diet. Not going out because I felt FAT. I wasn’t sure what to do or who to turn to.
Then one day, I realized my life was passing me with this self sabotaging hatred. I could lose the weight but once I did, I put it right back on. WTF? I was STUCK in the same place, over and over again. I think you hear me.
Finally, I did some deep soul searching, reached out for help, and began working on me in a different way than dieting and starving. I discovered a new way to eat, a new way to think about food and a new way to think about me.
You see, it’s not about starving or spending hours in the gym, it’s about LOVE.
We’re never really taught that SELF LOVE part of the equation. We’re preached to about not being SELFISH.
Well that’s just plain wrong.
You know how to take really good care of everyone else. Isn’t it time you were taught how to take extreme self care of yourself? Because it is only when you put yourself first and make your needs a priority that the whole world will benefit.
You are that powerful.
Are you ready to stop playing small and step up your life?
