If clothes shopping is triggering for you, try bringing multiple sizes to the dressing room and not looking into the mirror until you have put something on that feels comfortable on your body. Like this!
If food is your ONLY source of pleasure, it is always going to be difficult to honor your fullness.
Struggle with throwing away food? Here is a mantra that has helped me: When I reach a level of fullness where I feel physically and emotionally satisfied, whether I throw that food away or you eat it. It's a waste either way.
THE BODY OF TRUTH by Harriet Brown
If you are looking for a better understanding of WHY you feel the way you do towards your body – look no further. This is your book. Not only does this book talk about the beauty industry and diet culture, but it is also full of so much research. I was blown away by the different research studies and information we NEVER hear about in reference to weight, bodies, and beauty. I would recommend this to everybody!
ALL YOUR PERFECTS by Colleen Hoover
It took me foreverrrrr to pick up this Colleen Hoover book (not sure why – maybe the cover lol), but once I started, I didn’t stop. I kid-you-not I read this in a day. All Your Perfects is a heartbreaking story that really made me put some things in to perspective. If you enjoy books that take you on an emotional roller coaster ride, try this next!! NOTE: check trigger warnings!!
Quick Synopsis from Amazon: Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.
All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?
Write a thank you letter to yourself for something you did recently that you did not thank yourself for.
Example: Thank you Ry for doing all the laundry today…. Thank you Ry for emptying the dishwasher…. Thank you Ry for nourishing your body… Thank you Ry for prioritizing yourself…
