My honest recommendations as a coach who works with women facing challenges with food and body acceptance.
1. Cleanse your feed! 🚿
Be a curator of your social media feed. Unfollow fitspo and fit bodied accounts. As long as the external stimuli is there, you will always compare and will continue to find ways that you never measure up. It’s time to let that go.
Cleanse the comparison feeds with consciousness. If you must follow bodies, start following empowered people in larger bodies.
2. Pump the breaks or press the pedal to the metal. 🚗
Pump the breaks if someone is pitching you a shiny new eating or wellness plan that includes weight loss in the print. Restriction is the catalyst for a cycle that includes “the wagon.” You know what I’m talking about...”I fell off the wagon, again.” Falling off the wagon isn’t about willpower, it’s about biology and the next level up in this game of wellness is to understand restriction mindset and biology. Pump the breaks and assess the reality of the situation, how sustainable it is and how realistic is it that this shiny new object is going to fix your body? (BTW, no one needs fixing)
Pedal to the metal when you’re on social media and you see the words, “fast, cleanse, lifestyle plan, meal plan, or weight loss.” Scroll right past that shit otherwise you’ll risk getting sucked right back into the very behavior patterns that keep you feeling like a failure when the high of the initial promise wears off. For anyone learning to have a trusting relationship with food and aspiring towards body acceptance, these buzz words are a carrot back to the black hole of diet despair. 🥕🕳 These are two habits that have nothing to do with changing your diet or exercise routine but they can make a HUGE difference in how you feel about yourself and how you treat yourself.
Yours with love and acceptance, Coach Cydney 😘
