When it comes down to it, I feel that we are a mess with our bodies and our food, because we are a mess with ourselves. We may have learned that through our families of origin, through brainwashing in society – ads in magazines, fitness magazines, what ever. Some of it may have even be thrown upon us through trauma. In the end, I am not sure the how matters as we are responsible for ourselves and getting ourselves back on the path of love, peace and happiness. That path where we are comfortable in our own skin, where we love who we are in the world, where we are the best us that we can be.
Life is more than the agony of another failed diet, of food obsession, of hours in the gym training for penance of something we ate or because its what we have to do to feel normal. Life is bigger than the number on the scale.
