In this episode, I am sharing a little more of my story with you all. If you’ve followed me, you know that I struggled with my relationship with my body, food, and exercise. Well, I’m here to tell you that there are STILL things that trigger those old feelings BUT I am better able to cope now. 

It seems people think it’s all butterflies, daisies, and rainbows all the time BUT those old thoughts and feelings creep up sometimes. Knowing what to do and how to manage those feelings is where you take back that power from the “ old days” of the diet mentality. 

I used to let the scale define me. I would step on it first thing in the morning and it would literally set the tone for my day. I can’t tell you how many more times I’d step on it throughout the day. Ugh, I was a slave to it. If the number went up, I was disappointed and felt like I was failing…not to mention I’d eat less that day and add a bit more time to my workout. If it went down, Oh the world was on my side that day and all was just fine and dandy. 

I gave so much power to that little number and I let ir dictate my life and how I felt about myself. Thankfully I have learned how to handle it and work through those unhealthy behaviors and feelings. 

I went to the doctor a few weeks ago and, of course, they make ya hop right up on that scale…well, most times it is not an issue for me anymore BUT this time, a few of those old feelings came creeping back when I looked up at that number. 

SO, what did I do and how did I handle it? I can say I handled it WAYYYY better than I would have a few years back. Click below to listen to the full story.
