Body acceptance


Hi Brooke,
I have been doing your Stop Overeating master class under the asset tab. I created a protocol of no flour/no sugar/no snacks and meals between 11am-8pm. I have been sticking to it since November 1st and I think I am through the withdrawal period as I don’t have the horrible physical symptoms anymore. I am feeling good about my progress. I haven’t weighed myself yet because I don’t want to make it about weight. My commitments revolve around controlling my mind.
Then I was listening to your coaching call this week and something you said really made me think. I realized I don’t accept my body. In fact I ignore it; I never look at it. I wear comfortable clothes so I am not uncomfortable, but I think I have some deep thoughts about my body that aren’t good. I realized I was thinking that my body image would be better once I lost weight ( I always thought weight loss would be a nice byproducts of doing this work). So now I need to figure out how to access those deep, unhelpful thoughts and bring them to the surface. It is frightening and I don’t know how I will deal with them. I don’t know where to begin and would love your thoughts and advice on this.
