Even if you have been on this path for a while, there might be portions of becoming an attuned eater that trip you up from time to time. And most of us know that it can take a long time to not be affected by the messages that thinner is inherently better.
So I guess I am saying that I want you to know that it is normal to feel sad, anxious and frustrated as you make the brave decisions to follow your meal plan even though it might make you anxious.
And I know it can be frustrating when you do not want to compare yourself but you do anyway.
I want to tell you that I don’t think eating each meal has to be so hard and I think enjoyment of food and your body is a birthright that you can rediscover.
To help you at least get closer to how you might want to feel all the time with eating (content, relaxed, open, joyful, empowered, free, etc), I have a gift for you.

The whole point of this exercise is to get and stay focused on the “how come” of taking risks with food, why you are buying clothes that fit the body you have and why you are doing the hard things that being free from food and weight worries requires of you.

Well my first thought was how did I miss this post? Then I realized pinterest may have gotten in the way. However, I am glad that I missed this post until today. I am struggling in a lot of ways today and when I read this post I realized I related in so many ways. I feel so many of those feelings and more today. It was nice to not only read this post but it was nice to listen to it as well. It kind of made me start thinking about more of what we go over in session. I then did the desire map and I had to really sit down and think about what I want to feel and as scary as that is It also brought a small amount of hope into this day that has been full of feelings that are “normal” to me but ones that I would like to one day replace with the ones I came up with on my map. So thanks for this post. Just reading these post a lot of times reminds me of why I fight this battle every day to one day hopefully feel something other than all of those you posted and more everyday.
I love it Katie S! So glad this audio and handout helped you. Use it again and again!
