While I am a body positive coach- there are a few messages within the "body positivity" community that I don't necessarily agree with.
Is there a disconnect between your emotional and physical body?
Are you doing the things that make you feel the way you want to feel?
Although there is nothing inherently wrong with wanting to lose weight- it has to come from a place of radical self-love. What does that look like if we're not currently where we want to be?
It comes from making sure you're serving your highest self and not punishing your CURRENT self. Let me repeat that: SERVE YOUR HIGHEST SELF WHILE NOT PUNISHING YOUR CURRENT SELF.
Allow your body to take whatever shape it takes while living your best life.
Here is my take on what a body positivity journey looks like.
You start a new diet, you lose a ton of weight, everyone starts complimenting you and you get all of this new attention.
How can this possibly be bad?!
There is an unspoken dark side to dieting that no one ever talks about. In today's episode, Arielle Calerdon (IG: @ariellesays) dives in about the behind-the-scenes of a very public weight loss journey. What could possibly go wrong? Tune in to find out.
Don't forget, you can hang out with us over on The Confidence Project Facebook page here.
Just when I thought I had this whole "anti-dieting" thing figured out- it peeked it's ugly little head right back around the corner! But this time, in a very unconventional way. Tune in to see what I'm talking about!
I thought Jen Sincero changed my life when I read "You Are a Badass"
I thought she changed my life again when I read "You Are a Badass at Making Money"
Seeing Jen in person was SO LIFE CHANGING- I can't even put it into words.
It's no secret that I have a screwed up relationship with money- but aside from that, there's so much gold in this episode that I can't wait to share with you!
