Why you should stop worrying about your weight

"At the end of the day, if I can say I had fun, it was a good day". - Simone Biles Imagine the future-you, the you that is 20, 30 or even 40 years older than you currently are, came back to give you some advice on how to live your life. If that future-you was with you today, would he/she say to you: “You should torture yourself every day with negative thoughts about your body and your weight” “You should stay indoors and not date/see friends/apply for that new job/go out/live life/do things you love until you have lost weight” “You should spend most of your time worrying and stressing about work/the family/life in general”... or would that future you advise: “You should not worry about the

The Danger of Comparisons

There is only one YOU - and that, in itself, makes you VERY special. How often have you looked at someone and thought “she is so much thinner than I am” or “she has much better hair than I do” or “she is so much more successful than I am” or “she has much nicer skin than me”....

Nobody seems to believe in themselves and worse - everybody seems to wish they were more like someone else.

Do you feel guilty when you eat?

"Girls developed eating disorders when our culture developed a standard of beauty that they couldn’t obtain by being healthy. When unnatural thinness became attractive, girls did unnatural things to be thin.”- Mary Pipher Do you ever find that you eat something delicious but then feel GUILTY? Or that you look forward to eating a cake/brownie/biscuit but then feel DISGUSTING for having eaten it? Or perhaps that you eat one of your favourite stodgy, comfort meals, only to feel ANGRY at yourself for having given in and eaten this food?
