Fit Girl Series: Accept Your Body

love1

You can never, ever, not-in-a-million years, love and accept yourself from the couch.

If feelings were math “accepting your body” is a mathematical impossibility if you are not in touch with and caring for your body.

It’s not only ineffective, it’s dangerous advice that glamorizes, justifies and promotes obesity. It’s time to get over it America.

Accept what is and then love yourself.

Love yourself enough to make effort. Love yourself enough to care about what feeling is behind your eating. Love yourself enough to get off the couch and hit the gym or go to the track. Love yourself enough to make the time. Love yourself enough to find the money. Love yourself enough to make it a priority. Love yourself enough to go to an Over-eaters Anonymous meeting or Weight Watchers. Love yourself enough to put one foot in front of the other. Love yourself enough to break a sweat. Love yourself enough to read the packaging and labels. Love yourself enough to learn what you don’t know.

Love is not a feeling.

Love an action verb.

You can not teach what you don’t know.

Love your kid enough to go first.

Love your kid enough to say no.

Otherwise, otherwise, it’s just talk.
