Lessons Learned from Accepting My Body

My journey towards accepting my body has been hard but one of the most rewarding difficult processes I have ever done. I have learned many lessons in this journey which I’ll be sharing with you in this episode. 7 life lessons I have learned and that have seeped through my whole life. 

But I want you to know something… right now! 

Body acceptance is possible for all of us. That is, accepting our body for what is. Taking the focus on what your body looks like and instead focusing on what it’s capable of.  

Rather than telling yourself you hate the fat on your belly, it’s appreciating the child it created. 

Body Neutrality is the proprietary method I teach within the Going Beyond The Food Academy. Lesson 7.  The most impactful life-changing module.   

Body neutrality will lead you to: 

  • Overcome black and white thinking 
  • Gain more self-love and compassion  
  • Being more mindful… in all aspects of life 
  • Decrease anxiety, stress, and feeling of hopelessness 
  • Be more motivated to make the right choice

What I’ve found is that body shaming is the most potent reason why we emotionally eat, binge eat, compulsively eat and obviously, diet.

Last episode, I talked about a fairly common experience among women who want to change yet can’t get started or perhaps have started the process of change and it’s not getting her where she wants to be. It’s all about being stuck. 

In fact, I break down the stages of changes and why no one in this community is in stage one, which means everyone is engaged in the process of change. You’re all in between stages 2-5… And maybe 6. 

Moreover, we’re also going to hear from someone who is in stage 4 which is where most of my students are. Ready to engage in stage 5-6!  Click here.
