You Don’t Need Another Diet

  1. Sabrina says:

    I am at the point now where I can say that I will never go on another diet. I’ve been experiencing some weight gain (maybe residual effects of my last diet, more than 5 years ago now, or maybe just that I’m approaching 40), and have been struggling mentally to accept it. But I’m not going on a diet this month. I’m in a really good place with Intuitive Eating and Eating Competence, and am finding my groove with movement that nourishes rather than depletes me. Instead of that new year diet, I’m going to do a major closet clean-out, keeping only what fits well and makes me feel great, donate or sell the rest, and then go shopping for a few more pieces if I need to fill in any gaps. I’m going to accept, respect, and appreciate the body I have now, and dress it in a way that feels good and serves my lifestyle. No more squeezing into just-a-bit-too-tight jeans, or looking at a closet crammed full of clothes that aren’t quite right. This year, I’m striving toward a smaller wardrobe composed only of clothes I love, that feel good on my body and make me feel good about my body.

      Good for you! I have found wearing very comfortable clothing now takes precedent over everything else now (because I am over 40, I’m sure). Yes, the weight gain can be disconcerting, and acceptance doesn’t come easy and without a lot of work. But knowing you are never going on another diet, I have found, is such relief.

  2. Hi, Glenys! This year my resolution is to read books by or about fat women to see which ones are good representations vs those that suggest women must loss weight and/or find love to be successful. I started yesterday with 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl. Come on over to my blog if you are interested ☺
