“If I just lose ten lbs I will
feel good about myself again…”
“When I’m thin I get so many compliments on my appearance…”
“If I don’t follow my plan perfectly and to a “t” then that means I’ve failed…”
“I can’t keep any sweets in my house or else I will gorge myself on them…”
Has anyone ever had those thoughts before?
I know I certainly have in the past 🙋🏼♀️ In fact, truthfully, it took me years to learn how to rewire my brain out of wanting to constantly diet.
But once I learned to change the way I looked at food….it was the most wonderful freeing feeling ever.
I’m so excited to share my newest podcast with you guys! I brought on Maria Simpson (@bodyloveboss) to talk about the amazing movement she is creating teaching others how to end the diet cycle, to love your body, and to never have to diet again.
In our podcast, we talk about:
-Her past experience of disordered eating and compulsive exercise
-How her body started shutting down from extreme dieting and overexercising
-How she struggled with thyroid issues, gaining weight, losing her hair...and how she overcame that
-Ways you can cultivate positive body image for your own children (Maria is a mom of 5!)
-The first step you can take as you learn to break out of the diet cycle.
“It came down to restriction. Your brain wants what it can’t have. That’s human nature. Knowing in my brain that I was going to restrict food again caused me to obsess about it and want it. It was a constant craving and obsession and having to fight against it. I decided “what if I never restrict again? What if I just take that off the table and my body can trust me that all food is available at all times. There’s not a scarcity.” It really changed the game. Knowing that if I wanted a cookie I could have it. Food lost it’s power once I decided to take restriction off the table.”
Maria has an incredible way of using empathy and compassion to share her own journey and help others as they are navigating through that as well. She has amazing programs where she helps teach other women how they can learn to love their bodies and never have to diet again. You can find more about Maria www.bodyloveboss.com!
