The more things change, the more they stay the same.


This is a post I wrote a couple of years ago it was in January and as we know that is one if the key times of year for Diet posts. It seems that #DietCulture is alive and well post #Covid19 so now seemed like as good a time as any to share it.


If you are anything like me the adverts for get โ€œthinโ€ quick programs and products have started filling up your newsfeed. ๐Ÿ™


Thinking about this reminded me of a time in my teens when I was walking home from my part time job and two of my friends had come to meet me. As we walked home I was telling them about the latest fad diet I was on and they jokingly started to chant at me โ€œwe love you the way you areโ€ the laughter of that moment and that phrase thankfully lasted longer than the fad diet and for many years we joked about it. ๐Ÿ˜‚


However years later I also realised just how powerful the message was. My #bebalanced Program has grown out of my own experience of healing my thoughts & beliefs around food and dealing with the emotional weight and baggage I was carrying. โš–๏ธ ๐Ÿ“ฆ


Our bodies are amazing, they are already perfect (just think of all they do for us) but when was the last time you looked in mirror and allowed that to be your first thought. ๐Ÿค”

What if instead of trying to motivate ourselves by have toโ€™s, shouldโ€™s & self criticism? we were motivated by self love, self compassion and a desire to be the healthiest and happiest we could be. Can you imagine the difference?

What if we could love ourselves just the way we are?

What if we could love ourselves like our friends love us?

What if we could be our own best friend?

When love becomes our motivator everything changes โค๏ธ We exercise because we want to be healthy & strong โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป. We do exercise that we really enjoy ๐Ÿ˜Š

We eat food that nourishes and supports our body. ๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ‰๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿฅฆ๐ŸŒฝ

We keep hydrated ๐Ÿšฐ

We rest and allow ourselves time to recharge. ๐Ÿ› โฑ๐Ÿ› Not because we HAVE TO or we SHOULD but because we love yourselves enough to WANT to. โค๏ธ Let your friends know you love them just the way they are. Love is infectious they might just catch it โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌโค๏ธ #LoveYourselfToGoodHealth #WeLoveYouTheWayYouAre
