It’s Not A Weight Problem

I know what it feels like to feel helpless and out of control. I know what it feels like to be on an unending train of diets that only succeed in making me feel like more of a failure. Know what it feels like to feel ashamed because the largest size in the store still doesn’t fit.

I know what it feels like to be angry, to eat the same foods as my siblings, husband, and friends. Always gaining, gaining, gaining, while they remained the same.

I know what’s it’s like to suffer disease. To suffer mental illness. To suffer in silence.

I know what it’s like to feel picked on, left out, feel lesser just because I weigh more. Want so badly to feel as beautiful on the outside as I always did on the inside.


So I made a decision.

I decided to accept myself, exactly where I was, how I was, and then to love myself in the midst of my struggle. Like I would a friend.

I chose to stop hating my body, realizing she was in the same boat I was, we were both sinking, and we needed to help each other. It’s my responsibility to fuel her right and her responsibility to keep me well.

I gave up dieting, it never worked for me anyway. Instead I looked to simpler times, looked at what we have here naturally on the earth and made that my motto. If it comes from the earth, I eat it, just eat real food. Simple. Effective. Easy. Lasting.

I began to tune in and listen to what my body said after I ate certain foods and adjusted accordingly. I was patient, I went slow, because it had always been about weight loss before. And I finally realized, it can’t be all about weight loss. Because fat was never my problem, but grief, past traumas, self-control, patience, self-medicating, were the things I really needed to work on.

I can write you a meal plan, I can give you recipes all day long (I wrote y’all two whole cookbooks!), but if you don’t get to the bottom of all your stuff. You will continue to come back to this place over and over again. Because it’s not a weight problem.

  1. We have a lot in common when it comes to mentality and weight loss when you are at your heaviest. I’ve had good moments this year at committing and staying consistent but I fall off when I don’t plan perfectly. Without that plan in place the wheels come off quickly! The food doesn’t scare me, it’s the time to make a plan, and go to the store. I can get overwhelmed by picking meals to eat, then making sure we have enough and not blow the budget. I wanted 2019 & 2020 to be my year but they haven’t been. I want 2021 to be my year. My son will be 3 next year, closer to the age of going to Disney and I want to fit on those rides!!
