I was sitting around a dinner party of women today. Here are some of the comments I heard tonight
I am trying this new diet, I drink two shakes a week. I need to lose some of the fat on my body. I won’t do it forever. I know though, that the hardest thing is to keep it off.
(from a girl who doesn’t need to be losing any weight) I keep myself down to 1,200 calories a day.
I have a friend who restricts herself the whole week, counting calories…then shoves everything in her face on the weekends to the point that she makes herself sick.
After writing how I have been binge free for 21 days…my HEART ACHES! I couldn’t but help to share my story. How through my own perseverance, determination and relying upon faith I overcame this shit that has been holding me down for so long. How dieting almost robbed me of my life. How listening to my emotions/body/soul/mind that I am overcoming..I am recovering. I had to hold back tears, because the words coming out of my mouth aren’t the suffocated, insecure, light-less woman I was.
I was shinning, by being myself!
I am so PROUD of myself that I can hardly hold back the tears. More proud then anything I’ve done before. Cause I am listening, finally, to who I am.
What is your body/mind/soul telling you?
