12 Body Love Truths

  1. Losing weight will not make you happy. It hasn’t in the past. And it won’t in the future.

  2. The only reason you have issues with food is because you believe you aren’t good enough as you are.

  3. Your body is exactly as she should be right now. She is not wrong. She is not bad. She is not disgusting. She is perfect.

  4. You cannot control your weight like you were taught to believe you can. There is a lot of science backing this, and if you are intrigued you need to pick up Health at Every Size by Linda Bacon. Set-point theory is a fact. Meaning your body is always working to keep itself at equilibrium and she has a set weight range. You have a range of 10-20 pounds that your body is meant to stay in and it will do everything it can to keep itself there.

  5. Einstein said this, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” We created our troubled relationship with our body from one state of consciousness so we need to solve it from another.

  6. You are perfect. You are precious. You are a creation of the Divine. No mistakes were made on you.

  7. You are special because there is only one unique YOU. And at the same time, you aren’t special because everyone is special.

  8. The overeating and the compulsive negative self-talk is a way to avoid your truth. When you can learn to see the negative self-talk as a red flag to look at  how you are feeling, and expand beyond it, you are golden. To give you an example of this, my friend called me up last night and said “Ali, I feel sooo fat. I don’t know what to do because I have this event I am super excited about and I just feel like I’m eating too much sugar and am addicted to it, and I just feel fat.” This is how I responded “Okay, so what is REALLY going on? You couldn’t have gained 5 pounds since I last talked to you yesterday. You didn’t get fat in a day. Are you anxious about the event? Do you feel worthy of hosting this event?” She knew I was right. Do you see how her mind was telling her that her body was at fault for how she was feeling? That she was feeling fat and that to help her feel better, she just needed to stop eating as much sugar? We used the negative self-talk to show us that there was a feeling she needed to acknowledge.

  9. Your body is your teacher and she knows all. If you connect with her and let her guide you, she will provide you with all the answers you need to know. Your body is teacher.

  10. You are not alone. This is a cultural and global epidemic- approximately 91% of women are unhappy with their bodies and resort to dieting to fix it. The pain you experience can feel isolating. I get it. But know that you are not alone.

  11. Geneen Roth said, “Hell is wanting to be somewhere different from where you are”. If I want to experience peace, my job is to love where I am right now.

  12. Miracles happen. Expect them
