Lightbulb Making Peace With Food and My Body

Hey guys I found this article and I thought it was pretty cool:

1) I will lose the “dieting mentality” and focus on eating for health and energy.

2) I will exercise in a pleasurable way / find fun ways to get more physical activity in my life.

3) I will eliminate feelings of guilt about eating food that I perceive as being unhealthy.

4) I will enjoy eating my food and I will especially take pleasure in the companionship that I have with meals.

5) I will practice the skill of eating slowly so that I will be able to connect with my feelings of fullness.

6) I will enjoy a wide variety of foods, with the knowledge that there are many ways to eat healthy. I will NOT be overly restrictive with my food intake.

7) My goal is to be the healthiest person, both mentally and physically that I can possibly be. I understand that in order to accomplish this goal I must get adequate rest, manage my stress, eat a healthy and adequate diet and exercise my body on a regular basis.

8) I want to be at a healthy weight for my body, NOT some predetermined weight that I would need to overly restrict my food and / or exercise excessively in order to acheive.

9) I will resist negative thinking concerning what is considered beautiful in the media. Instead, I will focus on the fact that I too am BEAUTIFUL.

seriously, I needed this list. I have been going through a weight loss rough patch here. Some friends of mine called me out the other day on being obsessed. They told me I need to make peace with my body now, and to not let dieting rule my life. I decided they were right... I am taking a break from worrying so much. I am still going to exercise, but it's going to be fun. And I am going to eat what I want, just in controlled quantities. We will see what happens. Either way, I think I need to enjoy myself at this weight for a while, and appreciate what I have done, before I move forward again.

I love this! Numbers 3 and 6 were especially hard for me to learn, but so worth it... so very worth it.

This is great! I'm going to print it off and stick it on the back of my bedroom door. It'll remind me why I should be doing this.
