This morning I got on the scale to see how much damage I have been doing to myself, before I saw the number I thought okay if it is in this range I will not be too upset but if it is over this number I am going to have a shitty day. The number made me stop and reflect on how I have been eating with abandon. I use food when I am stressed or happy or bored or put in any feeling you want and I seem to be either eating too much or on a diet to try and stay within a ten to fifteen pound range. The up and down of my weight makes me crazy. I think about it far too much. It needs to stop.
A close friend of mine shared this Kickstarter campaign with me and I was inspired by this women’s honesty and openness. It moved me to get involved. They say that the teacher needs to teach what she most needs to learn. I need to learn to accept and love myself completely. Some days are better than others but I know I cannot do this alone because it has been an engrained behaviour for most of my adult life. Do you suffer from any body image issues? I would love to hear your story and together we can become stronger, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
