It's not just about losing the weight, Babe. It's about losing the lifestyle that got you there.
I'm not here to tell you that you should ditch eating chocolate and ditch eating ice cream because that's your poor lifestyle and you're a bad person if you order takeaway, okay?
What I'm here to tell you is that shame has been imposed on you. That shame surrounds food and the guilt and is actually coming from toxic shame that's been imposed on you from others. It actually has nothing to do with food at all but we're all spreading more and more shame and guilt. Instead of getting to the root of these weight issues we're worried about if we are doing the right thing around food.
There's nothing wrong with setting an intention to lose weight and following through. What the issue is is the shame and the guilt that is there and the shame and the guilt is there because there is work to be done on the psyche and moving beyond the childhood trauma that causes us to carry toxic shame and guilt, because how you do one thing is how you do everything.
This is more than just about your weight. Your weight is like the symptom of a deeper issue that is coming from your childhood and that needs to be healed and then you can do whatever you like with your weight because it will be very simple and straightforward if you choose to do something about it.
It's about developing autonomy so that you know you are in charge of that decision and no one else. People are saying anti-diet but they are encouraging people to not listen to themselves and they are still encouraging this codependency and merging with others.
Learn to trust yourself enough so that you do not need to be told what to do. You know and trust that you are being guided, that you know what is right for you. That if you want to lose weight, you can.
