Love your Body.......so easy to say but so hard to do and to actually feel.
For those who know me, you have seen my struggle with weight for as long as I can remember and have done every diet known to woman. I start with such enthusiasm but due to SUPER slow results I end up giving up too early and its back to the start again.
Sadly I dont have the skinny gene anywhere near me, I only need to look at food and there it is on my thighs within seconds so you can imagine what happens when I do actually eat it. I have to watch what I eat and exercise all the time just to maintain. It sucks but it is what it is.
I love food but good food. I am not a takeaway, fatty food type person, never have been. I just love awesome gourmet goodies and feasts in a little too much abundance. Chocolate and Ice Cream could also be a little problematic...lol
A friend of mine Jacquie Sharples has written this fantastic book called If Your Body Could Talk. It is different to anything else I have read and I loved it. Rather than telling you what to do and what to eat and not eat, it puts everything in perspective. It is a series of letters from your body to you. The idea is to treat your body as a dear friend, as your BFF. With that simple switch of focus I am feeling better and motivated with a new mindset.
My body is now called Olivia (my Dad wanted me to be called this and mum said No), she is my new BFF, we intend to be together for another half a century so I have to treat her right. We have to stop arguing and I need to stop calling her bad names and I need to start listening when she communicates with me. i.e "Janina, I am really full, can you stop feeding me, I truly don't need another slab of brie"
