I cannot bear to hear another woman tell me she’s going to wait until she loses weight before she can travel, date, take a dance class…you fill in the blank. What has our society done to us that we feel like we can’t live life until we look a certain way.
Don’t you understand that you’ve put on the weight because there’s not enough joy, pleasure, treat, and enjoyment in life. Because those things have been lacking, we often gravitate towards a quick food treat. But…it’s so temporary, then we have to keep going back for more. You keep searching for more food in your pantry hoping to satisfying some crazy cravings that never subside. We are full of responsibilities that our balance is completely screwed and the body is crying out. Weight gain is only a symptom and a biological response to the stressors you’ve accrued.
If you fall in this category, I’d say “go and do it.” Whatever “IT” is that you can’t do because you’re waiting to lose the weight. You’ll find that once you get started, you’ll build relationships, move your body, and love life so much that you no longer need to eat the junk to feel satisfied, attract positive people who will delight you, and end the neglect of your body.
I see it constantly! The people who finally embrace finding more and more joy in their life and not feeding the “I must lose the weight” fire, are the ones who truly succeed. As my boyfriend says about his child’s tantrum, “if there’s no audience, there’s no concert.” Ignore your “need to lose weight” tantrum and you will be free to fit into your skinny jeans again with ease and with so much fun. Stop the torture and your body will start responding.
Join me. Cheers to living and to life!!!
