You’re Always in a Relationship with Food: Why It’s So Important to Not Give Up on Yourself

Whether you’re on day 1 of no sugar and flour or day 100, you may be encountering some fear about how you’ll maintain a new and healthy relationship with food. After so many years of diet drama and trauma, and many let-downs and disappointments, it makes all the sense in the world that doubt and fear arises in the space of uncertainty of where this new relationship with food will take you.

What’s more, the shame of the tries and “failures” of past attempts can get in the way of fully committing to what’s best for ourselves. When things get difficult, shame leads us to cut and run back into our old, ineffective behaviors. But here’s the thing- what if you really believed in yourself this time? What if, this time, you gave yourself that real chance and didn’t let fear of the forevers and doubts about your commitment get in the way of your end goals? What would that look like? Feel like? Where would that road take you? When you embark on your journey with creating a loving and healthy relationship with food with fear, doubt, and trepidation, you are sending the message to yourself that you can’t do this (which is absolutely 100% not true!!)  Instead, act in confidence and assuredness- even if those worry thoughts pop up and try to sabotage your best intentions.  And remind yourself- in this new relationship with food, you are no longer holding yourself to unrealistic standards that you need to be a perfect eater. Your path ahead will likely come with bumps and twists and turns- just like it does for anyone! You need to promise yourself that you will come back to your own wisest intuition about what works for you and what brings you closer to peace with food and with yourself. And most importantly, you need to promise that you won’t give up on yourself. You are always in a relationship with food, and when you abandon your food goals you are also abandoning yourself. When you make the commitment to never give up on yourself, you are showing yourself that you are worthy of a fight, and that the hope of a more peaceful relationship with food absolutely is possible.  Want more support?
