How’s your relationship with food? Is it healthy or not so much? Do you eat when you are bored, tired, sad, anxious or need comfort?  It is normal for all of us to eat out of emotions at times. It becomes a problem when that is now our main way of coping.  Many times we are not even aware we are doing it.  Recognizing this pattern signals it‘s time to work on getting or regaining a healthy relationship with food.

God created you and your body with a purpose in mind.  Do you like yourself?  In this crazy world it can be very hard to love yourself much less your body.  It’s getting harder and harder for ALL of us, but especially females, to love and appreciate our bodies because we often look at them through false, negative filters.  It continues to seep deeper and deeper into our culture to the point that children in Kindergarten are defining people and objects by “fat” and “thin” and “thin” is better.  An astounding number of grade school girls are already dieting by 3rd grade because they think they need to be thinner in order to fit in. This can start the yo-yo dieting cycle which can lead to health issues and eating disorders.  It’s way past time we change this view and it starts with changing the way we look at ourselves and our bodies. With work, you can learn to love yourself and your body again!
