#Bodygoals-Check yourself before you wreck yourself.

I hopped in the Mighty Soul community today to talk a little about what I went through with my body dysmorphia and binge eating disorder, and what I now realize the driving force behind my body goal making decision was.

It wasn't that I wanted to be healthier.

It was that I wanted to look good... because at the time I had experienced a lot of rejection for my personality, and I thought the only way people would accept me was if I looked like someone worthy of having a conversation with.

How to start loving food, your body, and your life in 2019

I’m really coming into this “other side” of my journey of taking my power back from food and learning to love my body, and I have to say it’s a completely different world over here.

I never thought I would see a day where my mind wasn’t cluttered with overwhelming thoughts of food or how my body looked to other people. I just thought that it was normal-that it was the way I was supposed to behave around this stuff-that being healthy meant a constant journey of weight loss- and that life was meant to be lived day in and day out working to achieve some perfect aesthetic before I was allowed to experience happiness, love, confidence, and fulfillment.

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.

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.

Why the "New year, new me" diet pattern sucks a little more for introverts.

It’s December (obvi), which means that we are approaching that time where it is tradition that we all decide what in our lives needs to finally be resolved in the year to come.

And of course, the majority of us chooses our health.

Or we think we do anyway.

How my perspective on the body positive movement has changed since I stopped chasing the goal of weight loss

I was thinking about the whole body positive movement again today..and I wonder how many people have come across my website or social media accounts and were immediately annoyed by my message.

Or more specifically, turned off by the fact that I am someone that is preaching it.
