I have started to read a book that my therapist recommended and it is so fantastic! The title is Overcoming Overeating and it is by Jane Hirschmann. So much of this book is resonating with me and the relationship I have with food. I find myself reading it and nodding or even getting teary eyed in some spots because it is finally putting words to how I feel. It sounds silly, but I really feel like this book can be life changing for me! It talks about throwing diets out the window and concentrating on just accepting yourself as you are. It is all about self acceptance and not letting weight and food control your life. What a concept!! This book really makes me feel like I can do it and become a more positive person (and I am less than halfway through!).
I just wanted to share this with everyone in case you are struggling like I am! Highly recommend it to anyone who struggles with food, dieting, and self acceptance!
Thanks for reading and I hope everyone has a most fantastic weekend!
