😫I am so sick of seeing people sell weight loss as if it was the key to happiness.
😫I am so sick of seeing before and after weight loss pictures.
😫I am so sick of people saying that they lost weight and now their lives are perfect.
😫I am so sick of people glorifying weight loss as if it was some an heroic event.
What about our self-worth being connected to the
💙 way we treat ourselves and the kindness we share with others?
💙 service and work that we share with the world?
💙 our presence with our children and loved ones?
I do understand how challenging it is when you suffer from negative body image and disordered eating. These images of glorified weight-loss seem so promising and so true.
I do feel for you. I feel the struggles that you have and the challenges that you have with your body.
I used to feel the same way.
Now, I am convinced that these promises of happiness with weight loss are just a BIG FAT LIE.
Once the 'extra' weight is gone, you won't magically live a life of perfection. You still have to deal with daily struggles and grievances. Most importantly, the weight does not take away the deep pangs of unworthiness or shame.
What can you do? You actually have a choice.
You can stop looking at these images.
You can unsubscribe from the weight-loss guru’s newsletter list.
You can throw away the fitness magazine.
You can stop comparing yourself to others.
