334-Goals, Diet Culture and Delaying Feeling Better

Goal, Diet Culture and delaying feeling better

Even when we have ditched diet culture, we have a tendency to continue pursuing goals in a “diet culture way”.

Setting goals is healthy for humans, but it’s time to do goals the non-diet way.

GOALS, DIET CULTURE, AND DELAYING FEELING BETTER

Goals allow us to practice believing in ourselves. In fact, if we do them in a way that is kind and compassionate, we can actually feel good while pursuing the goal.

However, diet culture teaches us that our worthiness is intrinsically dependent on us achieving a goal.

Here’s what happens when we operate from the diet culture model of goal setting: we need to hustle, have willpower, and discipline. 

We require control every step of the way because our thoughts say “I’m not good enough until I achieve X”.

Then, we end up feeling the opposite of the feeling we’re chasing from our goal.

GOALS WITHOUT DIET CULTURE

A goal is a container for you to practice becoming the best version of yourself.

The purpose of a goal is to become the person who thinks the thoughts that create the feeling you desire.

The way we do goals inside of Undiet Your Life is by becoming the person that thinks the thoughts (i.e. body neutral thoughts) that create the feeling (i.e. body confidence) that you desire.

The work for you is to wake up and think intentional thoughts that will lead you to feel confident today.

We set goals to create the version of ourselves who thinks the thought to create the feeling we desire within us.

We no longer rely on external cues such as achieving the goal to feel how we want to feel. Moreover, we take full responsibility for our lives.

Become the version of yourself who thinks she is enough on Day 1 of pursuing the goal, not after the goal is achieved.

What you’ll learn listening to this episode:

  • How diet culture is still showing up in your goals
  • Why you need to feel enough when pursuing your goal
  • How to pursue goals the undieted way
