It’s been about 3 years since I have left the FDA (fitness and dieting anonymous). A group that I named myself where working out and dieting ruled my life. 3 years ago I decided to find an alternative path. A path that doesn’t involve six packs or biceps. It doesn’t involve deprivation or guilt. There is no punishment when I don’t do exactly what I am told. This path listens to me gently instead of shutting me down with force.
Now I workout because I want to workout. I lift because I want to be strong. I lift to release my aggression and stress- we all have it and letting it go is healthy. I am strong because strength is freedom.
I eat whole foods. I eat because I need fuel for my body- to make it strong. My body tells me what and when to eat because I listen to it. When I eat the right things, I know it. When I eat the wrong things, I definitely know it.
No one can take these choices away from me- not even myself.
I let it go. I let go of the guilt that I needed to be a certain size. I let go of the six pack abs and tiny waist. I let go the obsessions. And started to fall back in love with myself. With the healthy, beautiful features that I was blessed with. This is me. I deserve better than this.
