Manage episode 308309200 series 2122070
Do you focus on what’s wrong with your body, rather than what’s right with it?

Have you been critical of how your body looks throughout your life, even when you weren’t overweight?
I’m revisiting one of the most popular Weight Loss for Foodies podcast episodes, updated and even better than before. It’s such an important topic because so many women are dissatisfied with their bodies. This is something so upsetting and disempowering, but certainly understandable, given how much value is placed on our appearance, and the messages we get from the media.
So many women have trouble feeling at home with the body you have right now, yet the only way you can change it is to accept it, even love it, and take better care of it, and you won’t want to do that if you hate it.
Do you resist feeling at home with the body you have now?

One way to learn how to care for your body is to listen to my guided emotional eating meditation when your brain starts telling you to eat and you aren’t hungry. You can download a copy for free at the link below.
