Does Being Thin Really Matter?
If you had the opportunity to crawl inside my brain a few years ago, you would have seen I was constantly worrying about myself…
Worried about what I was going to eat for my next meal…
Worried about how far my stomach was sticking out…
Worried that I was never going to feel comfortable or confident in my skin no matter what I tried.
With 85% of my daily energy going towards food, my body, and myself it makes sense why I didn’t really have time for anything else.
Some people might have called it selfish.
But you wouldn’t have known that looking at me from the outside.
From the outside, I had a pretty darn good life.
But on the inside, it was a completely different story. I was very unhappy.
As women, we can feel guilty that we aren’t truly happy with our seemingly good lives…even secretly shameful because some others might consider our wanting something different as selfish.
After all, there’s starving children in the world and cancer that needs to be cured.
So should we just throw in the towel and put our energy towards something like world peace because worrying about weight is selfish?
Like…does being thin even really matter?
I think it’s an important question! And I give you my opinion in this week’s episode of J-ciniTV.
You might not like what I have to say here:
By the way, from here on out we’re going to continue talking about emotional eating and your relationship to food and your body here at LYS, not world peace. Just in case you were wondering 😛
Because it starts with the peace inside your world.
