It sent me into a deep depression. Each morning I would do this to myself. I'd wake up feeling like it was going to be a great day, like I was going to take on the world, and then I'd step on the scale and the day would go to shit. I would lash out at my friends, husband and kids. I would smile less, share my opinions less, and take less risks because my confidence would be in the toilet. Ultimately, I was allowing an arbitrary number on this tiny metal box ruin the quality of my life. Want more techniques to stop eating your emotions?

All of mainstream media told me I'd be happier, more confident and beautiful if I just lost more weight. But that diet and that exercise became burdens and forms of punishment for having a body that happened to store fat. I was starving, depriving and overworking myself just because my body happened to be a certain shape and was efficient at what it was programmed to do since the beginning of time: store fat in case of famine.

Since the body is programmed to avoid punitive measures like these, it immediately starts to react, signaling stress, hunger, and fat-storing hormones to pump out into your body like crazy. Thus, the minute I 'cheated' on that restrictive diet for biological and psychological reasons- my body put more weight on than it originally had because it was fearful that it would have to endure another diet in the near future. And, when I first started learning about Ending Emotional Eating through listening to your body and mind as a way to 'normalize' my eating, I couldn't believe all the research that was out there that explained how the diets that I would run to in order to solve my "weight problem" were the very things that were causing my body to go into 'stress mode' and store more fat in the long run.

But, I'm a 5 ft gal with thick, short legs that are strong and powerful- but not thin. Lord knows I chased those long thin legs that are represented as the 'normal' body size on every billboard for most of my life! I thought there was something wrong with me not the messages that I was being fed that I should constantly search to be thinner and I felt deep shame every time I ate anything with carbs or wasn't exercising.
It turns out, there was nothing wrong with me. It's my body type, it's in my genes, I cannot manipulate the shape of my legs anymore than I can change my eye color from blue to brown. Sure, I can tone them and shape them a little, but they'll never look like the skinny beanpole's you see at a Vicky Secret Fashion show.
Intuitive eating: is not dieting the secret to weight loss?
And you know what? My life literally improved from regularly exercising and every time I came up against a difficult scenario in life like childbirth , I would say to myself:. BUT- because I stepped on the scale a week after I ran the half-marathon and realized that I had only lost 5 lbs. I accomplished this amazing thing that gave me the courage to try so many other things that I wouldn't have otherwise tried but the scale told me I didn't lose enough weight, so I decided it wasn't worth it and I quit.
But, now that I'm an Emotional and Intuitive Eating Coach, and can happily say that I love running and exercising regularly now and I don't do it for weight loss. I enjoy chips, chocolate, and dinners out with my family without one iota of shame or binge eating. My cholesterol, blood pressure and overall health are fantastic. And I am at a healthy weight for my body. My weight is stable- no more up down, up down, up down. No, I don't look like those tall, skinny overly photoshopped models- but I enjoy the hell out of my life and I still look and feel perfectly beautiful.
