Well, it's that time of year. Weight loss commercials everywhere, diet shakes on the shelves in the store, and the NEW YEAR NEW YOU slogans out in full force.
As someone who has recovered from an eating disorder and learned a great deal about living a healthy lifestyle, this time of year makes me cringe. As if we are not good enough because we ate a little extra over the Holidays or gained a few pounds and we need to transform into a new person!
Fad diets encouraging us to cut out this and that and drink water to make you feel full. It is so frustrating to see people buy into that nonsense. Yes. Nonsense. Of course this is only my opinion of course.
Being fit and healthy and doing it the right way doesn't change January 1st. It always stays the same. Eat well, not restricting calories, not avoiding entire food groups, and staying active. You are more important than a a size.
Yes, it's ok to have goals for yourself in 2018, but make them realistic and sustainable.
You can do a crash diet and see immediate results. Anyone can. But can you maintain that?? Probably not.
Are people remembering to learn to love and accept themselves before going on these crazy diets? Is that mentioned in all the weight loss commercials? Not likely.
I love me. Five pounds lighter or five pounds heavier. I don't do New Year New You diets. I do what I always do. Take care of my mind and body ALWAYS❤
