Fat is like toe-nails. It's something you have, not something you are. - Dee Gautham

Next time you call yourself “fat” try calling yourself “toenail” and see how that feels 😂😂
.
I think the biggest perspective shift in my body image started when I stopped fearing, hating, and loathing my body fat… and just started seeing it as a neutral “thing” on my body. It comes and goes.
.
Body fat is neutral and doesn’t mean anything unless you make it mean something. American culture is particularly fat-phobic, and chooses to associate made up meanings to body fat such as laziness, “letting yourself go,” lack of discipline — But you know this is not true. There are many reasons for weight gain (one of the biggest of which IS excessive dieting! which *directly* leads to weight gain and yo-yoing). There are also many highly disciplined people who have body fat.
.
In reality, a lot of these false messages & associations are perpetuated by the $66 billion dollar diet industry to keep you insecure and keep selling you things. While in other cultures bodyfat is revered, celebrated.
.
So really, most of us don’t hate bodyfat, we hate the *meanings* we have learned to associate with the body fat.
.
Ask yourself: What meanings are you associating with bodyfat?? Where did you form those meanings? (Ie comments that were made to you when you were a kid that made you feel shame). What frame of reference was that person operating under? 👉 Remember, someone’s else’s frame of reference is not the truth. Ask yourself – what frame of reference do you want to operate under and take to be true??
.
If you’ve gained some weight this season and are feeling bad in your body 👉 Drop the stories you have about what it means. When you stop FEARING body fat you will also stop fearing food. You will be able to listen to your internal cues and make choices out of what FEELS best for your body and not fear of weight gain… (which only leads to restricting / binging / more weight gain).

Looking hot is an energy that you radiate when you are loving yourself deeply and feeling amazing🔥 You cannot radiate this energy in a state of deprivation and self-hatred. When you focus on feeling good you will look good.
