Here’s the hidden truth about control that often goes unspoken: it’s downright exhausting. 😬 After spending years expending so much energy on food, I don’t want you to be ‘in control’ of every morsel you eat. Why? Because that means you’re still pouring precious mental and emotional energy into every food choice, and I want more for you.
What I truly desire for you is to be unfazed by food. To make food decisions without investing heaps of energy, and then simply move on with your life.
Picture this: Choosing to eat or skip the veggies doesn’t trigger a self-esteem crisis. Opting for dessert or not having it doesn’t define the success or failure of your day. Deciding on seconds doesn’t send your mind into a whirlwind of anxiety.
Why? Because you just don’t care. You’re unfazed. Food is just food. It sustains you, but it’s not your life.
What I want for you is a life unburdened by the constant need for control. I want you to embrace freedom. Freedom to enjoy a meal without attaching your worth to it. Freedom to choose foods that make you feel good physically, without feeling imprisoned by rules and restrictions. Freedom to savor that slice of cake without guilt, and freedom to nourish your body when it needs it.
So, here’s to a life where food doesn’t consume your thoughts and energy. It’s time to break free from the cycle of control and embrace the liberating concept of food being just food. It’s a journey worth embarking on.
