The Body you Love!

When we love who we are, our nutritional needs change and so do our habits!

We all remember the words from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs by the wicked queen …” Magic mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all.” The mirror could never lie and thus began our personal infatuation for critiquing ourselves and comparing ourselves to others. Today we are talking about the self-sabotaging talk we all have used to wish away our thick, thin, curly, straight, limp, grey, blond, and brown…hair. As well as our fat, thin, tall, short, big-boned, skeleton, or gaunt features.

Our desire to make sure our features are perfect before others take a look and judge. We also know about looking in the mirror and determining our self-worth by the reflection that stares back that meets or doesn’t meet our own expectations. We try to stop the negative self-talk, but we can’t help ourselves, for thousands of years the mirror has been a reflection of image, power, and status. From these reflections of ourselves come our ideas about food, dieting, and thinking our diet is the reason for all our problems.

How did we become so critical, and so self-indulgent in looking past health, happiness, and joy in our efforts to look and think ourselves perfect?
