What is your relationship with food? Is it good? Is it healthy? Is food just a necessary part of your life and nothing more?
I want to make peace once and for all with food. I had an unhealthy relationship with food in the past and still can’t make myself 100% at peace with it. Now, I am trying to make myself at peace with it. Trying to always remind myself of the principles of intuitive eating especially that nothing is off limits and to let go of a diet mentality. It’s easier said than done but step by step I know I will be able to finally be at peace with food.
I am struggling with the weight I gained during my last pregnancy and since I still haven’t lost those last 10lbs,I have gone back and forth of trying to lose them or just accepting it as it is.
If I’m going to be 100% honest, I know that I am also unable to lose the weight partially due to medication (antidepressants) I have been on since after Raffaello’s birth.
Will life really change if I lose 10 pounds? Probably not, nothing will change. I’ve also been advised by my therapist to not try to lose the weight yet, she believes I’m not ready yet for a diet. I’m still to frail from the past and a diet could bring out something more of depression or anxiety out. I’m in a good place now mentality, I shouldn’t threaten that for something as insignificant as a few pounds.
I will leave you with a food a photo of one of the happiest moments in my life, my son’s 2nd birthday.
