Do you hate the way you look?
Do you wonder how you could ever feel okay about your body?
If you’re middle-aged or older, do you worry about your wrinkles and the effect gravity is having on your body?
I believe women spend way to much of their time and energy focusing on that one small aspect of ourselves: our appearance. Almost all of us are guilty of it.
There is so much more to you than the way you look!
Although I coach people about how to permanently lose weight, I believe that having a healthy relationship with food and eating and being healthy are so much more important than the size of your body or what you look like. There's no point in being at your goal weight if you're still obsessed with food, eating and your body because you won't be happy.
Sadly, throughout history, women’s appearance has been given too much weight in determining our value.
Despite the feminist movement, the situation is getting worse. According to Dr. Nancy Etcoff at Harvard Medical School, the latest research shows that low body image in women is a global issue of epidemic proportions.
When we spend so much of our time and energy worrying about our appearance, we can’t spend it doing something really meaningful, productive, or that make a difference in your life and the lives of others.
