Body Acceptance 

We think that we can delay accepting our body until we get our relationship to food OK.

Most of us are ready to do the work with our emotions but when it comes to doing the work with our body image… we resist. And we resist hard!

The truth is Body Acceptance is the must-have to make peace with food. More than a must-have, it’s essential.

Can’t make peace with food without making peace with your body right now as is!

It’s like trying to heal a splinter without removing the foreign object. Crazy right? You never think of not removing what causing the infection, the pus, the pain, the inflammation…

Yet we think that we can avoid accepting our body. The pain and suffering associated with non-body acceptance is the cause of many emotional eating roller coaster, binges and diet cycle.

In this episode I discuss

  • Body Acceptance: the definition
  • What happens when we don’t accept our body as is
  • The 3 things you can do now to start accepting… yep, no-cost involved

Last episode, I shared my Holiday Survival Guide cause I know the holidays can be tough and can cause more anxiety than pleasure for many. So, I’ve gathered my tools and shared it with you, my community to help you thrive during the holidays and focus on things that really matter in this special time of the year. 

The Beyond The Food Holiday Survival guide will move you from self-destructing eating habits during the holiday to thriving and loving the holidays altogether!

and Yes, it’s possible…

As with anything we teach here, a few tweaks in your mindset and how you approach certain situation or event will be needed to move from shriveling at the idea to anticipating the holiday with excitement. Click here and enjoy the holidays!
