Because body image work relational- it’s an ongoing journey, an ongoing process-, of undoing and unraveling, of curiosity, reconnection, reassessing and reaffirming compassion for your inner self and the physicality that carries you through your life.
At the time my weeks were spent tightly "on-plan" and my weekends were spent binging. The binges were emotionally and physically painful and made me feel absolutely out of control and completely and utterly flawed.
I didn't know what else to do, so each week when Sunday rolled around I'd throw out all my "bad" foods and hop back on my plan.
It always fascinates me what happens at the supermarket right before we get hit with a big storm.
Long lines. Bread isles cleared. Eggs sold out.
Justifiably, people stock up because they're not sure how the roads will be and when they'll be able to get out.
Folks are worried and anxious about taking care of themselves and their families. They want to be secure in the fact that they'll have something to eat. Even just in case.
I know you're wondering what this has to do with anything...
Well, the SAMEprincipal applies when we think about dieting.
