For 15 years of my life, I had big plans to diet and lose weight every January, as we are meant to according to the dieting industry. Knowing that January was around the corner, I decided that I could eat whatever I wanted, drink whatever I wanted, and do whatever I wanted in December! It didn’t matter, because January was coming soon enough and I would go on some crazy cleanse and wash it all away.
It felt fun and fancy-free to let go completely in December…until it didn’t anymore. It began to feel like one giant hangover I couldn’t escape from. I had pimples all over my face and my clothes stopped fitting. I couldn’t physically stop myself from eating my favorite holiday brownies. I couldn’t stand the thought of making small talk at one more freaking party. I became annoyed at every family member when they were just being their usual selves.
But once I finally let go of diets and found intuitive eating and self-care, I have enjoyed every aspect of my life so much more, especially the holiday season.
These days, I can eat all my favorite holiday food, dessert, and drinks, and do so in an amount that feels good – rather than stuffing myself. I make time to take care of myself, I prioritize what’s important to me, I spend time with loved ones without letting them trigger me, and generally just have a much happier holiday season!
Which is exactly what I want for you too, and exactly what I plan to teach you, in just a few simple steps in this workshop.
