MY THOUGHT ON Battle scars from the Diet War

Friday, January 13, 2012

Battle scars from the Diet War

Like Martha Graham, who said that "The body is a sacred garment. It's your first and last garment; it is what you enter life in and what you depart life with, and it should be treated with honor," Jenny Craig seems to know a thing or two about caring for your body and your self. In the Garden of Eden, eating was modeled as one of life's most pleasurable experiences. But then Eve took a bite out of that apple (so much for the low calorie, low fat, high fiber theory), and women (and men) have been at war with food ever since. Both of these quotes reflect this fact. Are your weight issues really a symptom of something else--boredom, depression, regret, or rejection? At the root of many issues is our self-loathing at worst, our self-indifference at best. Food is not the enemy. We are. Break the cycle of dieting and replace it with loving yourself enough to make good choices about your diet. Examine your eating habits this week. Are you honoring your body with your food choices? How can you love yourself back to a healthy relationship with eating? Take steps towards defeating the natural compulsion or craving that might take you down a path of regretful eating. Remember the sacredness of your own skin.

I READ THIS TODAY,AND IT SEEM TO BARE A LOT OF TRUTH TO IT .IT SEEM THE MORE I DIET ,THE HARDER IT GET TO LOSE AND STAY ON GOAL .I LIKE TO GO BACK AND GIVE EVE A SWIFT KICK IN THE SETTING DOWN PLACE LOL.

    D eprivation. You feel deprived if you mentally feel like things you love are out of the question, vs. lifestyle changes that entail learning how to eat what you love in the right portions.

I nertia. You feel "stuck" because depriving yourself of ANYTHING foodwise mentally depressing! The "oh poor me" syndrome I call it.

E ntrapped. You feel like you're stuck with the body you have. Well, truthfully we ARE "stuck" with the body we have, but it is how we treat it that makes the huge difference! You treat it healthfully, and it will BE healthy.

T ired. It is exhausting to be on the "diet merry-go-round". You struggle but don't get ahead!

That's why for me, I prefer to think of this as lifestyle changes, made one or two @ a time, working on it day-by-day, step-by-step and not being afraid if one day isn't perfect.

Wishing you success.
