And in order to change you need to...

“When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits – anything that kept me small. My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.” – Kim McMillen Do you look in the mirror each morning and think – “I’m just so in awe of my body – the way it allows me to move, dance, live life and have fun”. Chances are, your encounters with the mirror aren’t quite so enjoyable. Rather than appreciating all of the wonderful things that your body does for you, you scrutinise how it looks, picking yourself apart. Take a quick moment to stop and ask yourself how highly you value yourself. Do you love and appreciate yourself?

What are you scared of thinking about?

"you can never, ever, use weight loss to solve problems that are not related to your weight. At your goal weight or not, you still have to live with yourself and deal with your problems. You will still have the same husband, the same job, the same kids, and the same life. Losing weight is not a cure for life." -Phillip C. McGraw Hiding behind worrying about your diet can make life easier sometimes. I mean, if you were to stop thinking about food, obsessing about what you are eating, what would you have to face instead?

Relapse does not mean failure

Yet as you persist and keep trying, keep falling over and getting back up – slowly but surely, you will get better and better. In time, you will very rarely fall off the bike or very rarely get a dance step wrong (of course it still might happen, we are only human) but most of the time, you ride that bike or dance with ease.

HEALING your relationship…with food

"Dear Diet, Things just aren't going to work between us. It's not me, it's you. You're tasteless, boring and I can't stop cheating on you. Let's break up." -Author Unknown We have all been in a dysfunctional relationship at some point in our lives. Maybe we dated the “bad boy” in our 20s and were addicted to the highs and lows, despite knowing that be probably was not good for us. Maybe we kept a toxic friend in our life for too long, despite her not respecting our thoughts or our time and despite knowing that we weren’t being treated well. Maybe we tried hard to maintain that bond with our sibling, even when they didn’t return our calls, only contacted us to off-load their problems, neve

What does eating have to do with your mental health?

You will often hear stories of people who have suffered a catastrophic break-down or developed a serious mental health condition and they (or nobody around them) ever saw it coming. They only even became aware that they had a state of mental health once they had completely fallen to pieces and could no longer cope.
