BALANCE

One Halloween, I restricted my food for days so I could eat candy on Halloween. I ended up with a migraine from the sugar my body wasn’t used to any more. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
One Halloween, I skipped a costume party because I was so uncomfortable in my skin, and knew I wouldn’t find anything to wear. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
One Halloween, I spent the entire day dreading all the candy that would surround me. Would I be able to say no? Would I stick to my diet perfectly? The fear of food paralyzed me. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Now, I no longer restrict, place foods off limits, or deprive myself of foods I enjoy. ⁣⁣
I no longer miss out on events, parties, or outings because of the way my body looks. ⁣⁣
I no longer let food dictate my day, or cause fear, overwhelm, or take up much space in my brain. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
If you struggle too, I promise you… ⁣⁣
You can find peace with your body.⁣⁣
Food will not always be the enemy.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Balance is possible. ⁣⁣
