4 Ways To Stop Hating Your Body

4 Ways To Stop Hating Your Body

I see too many women hating their bodies and I get it because I used to hate mine too.  It stopped me from living my life, because I was uncomfortable in my skin.  I constantly thought about how I could make my body smaller, I berated it, called it terrible names, pinched it in disgust.  I cringe now thinking about how I’ve treated my body in the past.  Your body is the vehicle to your beautiful soul and deserves all the love and care you would give a child or beloved pet.

You Lose More Than Weight When You Go On A Diet

You Lose More Than Weight When You Go On A Diet

Diet culture tells us that when we lose weight we will therefore become happy, popular, successful and more. It shames us into thinking that we aren’t good enough and that our bodies are somehow wrong if they don’t fit societal ideals of the thin, lean body.

I Experienced My First Hater

I Experienced My First Hater

I experienced my first hater last month. Someone who completely disagreed with what I was saying, actually missed the point of my post and told me some interesting things, including that I was addicted to animal products (which isn’t a thing, just in case you were wondering) and processed foods, promoting poisons and actually feeding “the problem,” not helping it.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Can we talk about how much I hate diets and diet culture?  I promise I’ll get to these delicious Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, oh and caramelized onions!  Sooo good!  I know hate is a strong word but I hear conversations all the time between women and stories of the diets they’ve been on.  I’ve talked about this before but until diet culture lays to rest, it bears continued repeating.
