If your weight were a mathematical problem, how would you solve it? Well for starters, I wouldn't suggest you count calories nor points. Nor would I suggest you subtract dessert and reduce carbs. I wouldn't even suggest that you start by looking at food. Instead . . . I'd suggest that you reach in for The formula. Scan through your experience and emerge with solutions. Observe your patterns. Take responsibility for your behaviors. Mine your culinary skills for recipes that are body and weight loss friendly. When I followed that formula, I began to really honor what was soft, happy, sweet, sacred and wise about me. And embracing that reflected in what I chose to put on my plate and in my body. I began moving on from bad things, bad habits, bad situations, bad characters and bad spirits. I stopped acting like I was okay, when I truly wasn't. I expressed disappointment in my life openly. I asked for help when I needed it. I became my own partner and ally. I responded to my hunger with love, respect and appreciation instead of some calculated, portion controlled, bland ass meal. That's what I did and that's what I'm still doing. What about you? Is your weight is a problem? How are you addressing it? Are you still forcing diets down your throat? Are they working? If not . . . then stick around. Body Food Freedom will help 🙂 I'll see you in the next newsletter and post.

All of these feelings were showing up as extra weight, burdens and dis-ease in AND on her body. She hated her reflection. In 5 minutes, I'll share the 1 thing that she did that took her from "Ugh" to "WOW!"
