Letting go. Possibly one of the hardest things we ever have to do in our lives. Probably the hardest part of the process when it comes to making peace with food. By letting go, you will be forced to actually “feel” the feelings without running to something (in this instance, food) to numb the feeling.
You’re probably wondering what exactly I’m asking you to let go of. I’m asking you to stop holding on to the way you think things “should be”: fitting into a certain pants size, eating in a particular way, having it all together, etc. Just let it be. Let go. Maybe it means giving something up that you really wanted and maybe believed you couldn’t live without. Maybe this means giving up the dream of being a size two. Or giving up the desire to be in complete control and wishing to eat perfectly and never slip up. This is not an easy task, and I’m not going to pretend that it is.
I’m going to leave you with that. I want you to really think about how letting go makes you feel. As uncomfortable as it may feel at first, once you wake up and make the ever-empowering decision to really truly let go for good, I want you to know that it is the most freeing feeling you will ever feel. Knowing that you have your entire life ahead of you. Knowing that you are free to think about something other than your weight and food. I wouldn’t give up that freedom for anything.
What will you do with your time once you are free?
