Today I put on some pants and they were a bit too tight. So this is what I’m going to do:
1. Get a new pair of pants
2. Fold up this pair of pants at the back of the cupboard so that only the stuff I feel good in right now is at the front
3. Keep eating mostly nutritious food that I enjoy
4. Keep doing exercise that I enjoy
5. Remember that it’s normal for body shapes to fluctuate a bit and that I influence my health by the healthy habits I keep, not by the size of my pants
6. Get on with my day
This is what freedom from negative body bullshit and self-monitoring looks like – and I can tell you it’s possible, worth it and feels amazing.
