Dieting is the new comfort zone in our search for a happy and healthy lifestyle

I’m sure you’ve heard the term “Nothing changes if nothing changes”

Not all action we take to reach a goal actually helps us get any closer to where we want to be. A lot of times we will work very hard at trying to reach a place we haven’t been able to reach yet by doing the same things that don’t work over and over again, because it’s safe.

And we wonder why we never get anywhere.

Dieting is one of these safety zones. And it’s a waste of time.

The truth about self-love and body acceptance

We have been taught that focusing on our bodies will fix everything in our lives. That having the “perfect” figure will lead us to total overall health and happiness. But this is so misinformed. Not only was I awakened to the truth that mental, emotional, and spiritual health are essential in an overall healthy body, I have been experiencing it for myself for the last year..especially the last 3 months.

It is impossible to achieve and sustain a healthy physical body if our mind and emotions aren’t at ease, and it’s difficult to achieve this without having faith in some kind of higher power.

And guess what the two answers I receive the most often are?

I’ve already gotten quite a bit of engagement (positive and negative) on this message so I decided to take it to the blogs.

Breaking the cycle of dieting & binge eating; If I can do it, so can you.

I spend a lot of time talking to women about the different ways they can ditch the dieting and conquer disordered eating patterns, not only because I have so much personal experience in this realm, but because in recovering myself I’ve discovered how beautiful the other side of this struggle can be.

So yea of course I want to share that with as many people as possible.

But I will always be transparent about the fact that just as anything worth having naturally is, it can be a messy process at times.

Healing is a journey, not a destination

So happy to have you here, and I hope that in keeping up with these weekly blogs you'll be able to find some inspiration in your journey!

Today I want to briefly talk about the word "healing" when it comes to recovering from disordered eating patterns. I think a lot of us overthink this word and assume it means once you get to a certain point, you will be completely free and you'll never experience another difficult moment with food again, ever.
