As humans we want what we can’t have whether it’s carbs or a better paying job. Plus we think about, and tend to follow through on, whatever we give our attention to - even if it’s something we’re trying NOT to do. Have you ever told yourself not to say something around someone.... and then you end up saying it?? 🤦‍♀️⁣⁣⁣

Another reason we may be constantly thinking about that stop sign, or box of donuts, or joking that we’re hungry all the time, is because we are not eating enough. This is a survival mechanism, our bodies are designed to do this to try to keep us alive.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
What’s helpful: Work on letting go of food rules. We want to neutralize food instead of labeling it as good/bad; it’s just food. We also need to hit the pause button on dieting.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It’s more effective to think:⁣⁣⁣
+I’m working on honoring my hunger and fullness cues, and giving myself some wiggle room.
+I’m listening to my body about what it needs, prefers, craves, and what would be satisfying.⁣⁣⁣
+I deserve to eat no matter how much I had or moved before this.⁣⁣⁣
+I trust my body to take care of me and settle at the size it prefers to function at.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Do you have a mission statement or a helpful thought you’ve relied on to help you transition to intuitive eating? When I started I had made a promise to not diet for the rest of the year and could reevaluate in 8 months. It was helpful to get through the rough patches.

A "Thank You" hardly seems like enough for what you've done for me.
...
I'm sending out a virtual hug, handshake, salute, with prayers of Thanksgiving to all the Veterans.
...
May you all feel the love and appreciation so many of us are sending your way lately!
...
I will never truly understand the sacrifices you've made for me.

How are you doing with compassionate curiosity around your food?
..
Compassionate curiosity is the ability to look towards yourself with kindness and inquisitive inquisitive interest when it comes to noticing your hunger and fullness and your food choices.
..
The only way that we get better at this is through continuing to practice and bring ourselves back to compassion and curiosity when we notice our critical mind taking over.
..
It is normal to experience an increase in discomfort when you start practicing. Often it's because we notice how much we haven't been extending compassion to ourselves. This really means giving ourselves permission to be learners.
..
You can also give yourself permission to be curious. -What foods do I really enjoy? -What foods sustain me for longer periods of time? -When do I feel satisfied? -How does fullness feel different from satisfaction?
..
What are you doing to practice compassionate curiosity with food today?

Regrann from @zoe.dietitian.lovewhatyoueat - Restrictive eating is also the no. 1 risk factor in developing an eating disorder.
.
I am posting this after one of my clients expressed concern over how a number of her friends and colleagues are following restrictive programs and now showing disordered eating behaviours. .
This client came to see me after noticing how the restrictive gym program she had been following was starting to mess with her eating and that she was no longer getting any pleasure from food.
.
If you choose to restrict food based on ethical, environmental or religious reasons, or if you need to restrict for medical reasons, then of course this is ok.
.
I am talking about restrictive eating where there is a focus of changing how your body looks.
.
If this description of disordered eating is you, or someone you know, I implore you to consider if this way of eating is really benefitting you. Is it enriching your life; or is it getting in the way of your relationships to other people or things you would dearly like to be part of?

Couldn’t love this more! We so often use the clothes that we store in our closets as a gauge of our worth. Today, set the goal to donate one thing that no longer serves you. If it doesn’t bring you joy, it doesn’t belong in your closet, on your body, or in your life. Your worth is too important! 📸:@meandmyed.art 🧘🏼‍♀️

The jig is up. Diet foods don’t taste good. This just leads us to eat and eat and eat trying to find satisfaction but instead just ending up uncomfortably full. Can we just all agree to stop buying diet foods? 🤷‍♀️

This is probably not what you're expecting.

Pie day might be one of our favorite days of the year!
People think that to be healthy means you need to avoid all the tasty things, and only eating salads and chicken, leading to the perpetual cycle of dieting and falling off the wagon, or never trying to eat healthy because it’s too hard.
I’m happy to say that you can be healthy and eat your cake... I mean pie too 😉. A year ago, I was afraid to try to live healthier because it seemed so hard! Instead of becoming healthier I gained more weight and felt worse about myself.
I was embarrassed that I was out of breath because of the stairs, I didn’t straighten my hair because my arms got tired, I told myself that I was “loving myself” by being okay with gaining weight.
We get to choose our hard. It’s hard to be healthy, but it’s hard to not be.
A year later, I’m choosing to love myself and live a healthier lifestyle. I’m choosing my health for the sake of my kids, for my job, for my clients, and most importantly for me. The best part? I feel at peace instead of shame when I choose to eat pie.
Are you looking for food peace?

Take off the shackles!! ⛓

Have you ever made a diet vow? I have. Here is what I’ve learned.

Dietary vows are often made by so many who have pure intention or who have been moved by newly acquired nutrition knowledge; however, so often these vows lack proper perspective, projection, and preparation.

I have been here...and my advice is to be sensible about nutrition, instead of making vows you cannot or possibly do not truly desire to keep.

Celebrate the new knowledge you have acquired and allow that to bring light into your life as it unfolds.

The bottom line: you are free to choose, evolve, and change your mind regarding nutrition.

You also have permission to contradict yourself at times. This is a natural phase of growth.

You are FREE.

It’s that time again for some #sundayreflections. *
Love this one from @brendonburchard but I’m switching things up a bit! *
Intention ➡️ practice ➡️ behavior ➡️ habit ➡️ second nature 🔁 who you are
*
First, it’s an intention. Then a daily practice. Then a regular behavior. Then a consistent habit. Then it becomes second nature AND is simply who you are!
*
In other words, #dontgiveup #keeppressingon for the results your working so hard for. They will come with dedication and persistence.

“We don’t know what we don’t know.” When I first learned about Intuitive Eating, Health At Every Size, and weight stigma I felt like I was hit by a diet culture semi truck. Everything I thought I knew about health and weight was wrong. Every diet and weight loss attempt I tried was disordered. I unknowingly judged myself and made assumptions about people in larger bodies - which meant everything about my internalized fatphobia and nothing about anyone else. I was angry, embarrassed, sad.. you name it, I know how hard it is!⁣

We probably weren’t taught this but we have to give ourselves compassion every day. Confronting everything you’ve been conditioned to believe about weight/health/food/worth is hard, painful even. You thought you were doing the right thing, you were told the pursuit of thinness was healthy your whole life. And the people who told you this, often your loved ones... they don’t know what they don’t know either. They were probably doing what they thought was best and trying to protect you from future pain and rejection but didn’t realize how much harm this was causing. When you’re ready, give them grace, too.⁣

It is NEVER too late to change; to make peace with food and your body. To forgive yourself for your actions, causing pain, or passing along any harmful or disordered information to family, friends, and followers. You deserve forgiveness. You should have never been told you had to be thin to have value or that your purpose was to be seen as attractive to others - based on a vary narrow and unrealistic definition. We are here for so much more than that, you are lovable and worthy exactly as you are.⁣

This isn’t going to be all butterflies and sunflowers but I can tell you from personal and professional experience, it is worth it. Imagine what you’ll think about, talk about, and do when you aren’t thinking about food and weight all the time. You might be surprised by what you’re drawn to do, able to accomplish, and how your life will change and get bigger.

New mom life. I’m still figuring it out... And plan to always be. Because once one phase passes another one enters. A beautiful lesson in that there are always new lessons to learn 💕 Just like in life.
.
And right now in this season of life, everything is softer - my body, my emotions, my drive. It’s good. It’s needed. It’s life-giving.
.
I encourage you - whatever it is you’re moving through - to find some softness & to give it to yourself. Because you’re allowed to NOT be “on it,” you’re allowed to say “no,” you’re allowed to cry, and you’re allowed to let go of whoever you think you should be for who you are, right now, in this very moment. 💜 Because it’s worth it. And so are YOU.
.
Here are a few affirmations that may speak to you, as you find your softness
👇
✨I am allowed to let go
✨I heal easily & quickly
✨I am choosing to see things differently
✨Even though I feel scared, I am whole
✨I am enough
.
Note: affirmations never work if you feel like you’re lying to yourself. So you’ve got to find a phrase that speaks to you & feels true to you. Adding in “Even though I feel ______...” can be a beautiful way to acknowledge your current feelings while also allowing yourself to use an affirmation.
.
If you’re feeling big, bold & brave, practice below in the comments 💖.... Fill in the blanks 👉 Even though I feel __________, I am ___________.
.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
.
p.s. I’m moving away from blogging & just sharing in my newsletter. If you’re not a part of my email coaching community, sign up! Just hit “get weekly-ish coaching emails” via the link in my bio (@corinnedobbas ) 😘 #newmom #momlife

I went to a Mexican restaurant tonight 😍. I ordered Hawaiian shrimp chicken fajitas. I also had a strawberry margarita. I'm looking forward to my leftovers tomorrow for lunch. Also bonus...I didn't eat to the point of sickness this time. Everytime I went to this restaurant in the past I'd eat way past fullness and feel so sick afterwards. I'm making small strides towards finding balance every single day. ❤️

Hey, I can relate, when we’re feeling desperate we’re willing to try anything! Of course there’s a ton of great information on here, it’s just challenging to sift through what’s harmful and what’s helpful.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Things to be cautious of:⁣⁣
🔺Restrictive diets - they could provide temporary relief but will likely create even more chaos and distress on the body. ie. low calorie, low carb, no fruit, no sugar, etc.⁣⁣ They also likely do not address the actual issue.
🔺People who stand to make a profit off what they’re saying - obviously not EVERYONE, we all have to make a living right?⁣⁣ Some may bend the truth if their income depends on it.
🔺People who are not actually licensed or qualified to make medical or mental health claims and recommendations.⁣⁣
🔺Boat loads of supplements 💸⁣⁣
🔺Claims that sound too good to be true - “Stop binge eating in 8 weeks. Lose X pounds in X time without dieting.”⁣⁣
🔺Detoxes - your body naturally does this daily.⁣⁣
🔺Cleanses - unnecessary.⁣⁣
🔺All organic, non GMO, gluten free, non processed - this can rapidly develop into orthorexia⁣⁣
⁣⁣
You never have anyone’s full story on here. As you step away you’ll spot it hundreds of miles away: they can seem happy, healthy, and energized, though in real life they are anxious, addicted to their phone/likes/stories, no social life, no balance, lonely, meltdowns over what they ate and crying over how they look. I hear this all the time and there is help available!⁣ It is understandable why anyone would experience this in this culture.⁣
⁣⁣
Instafamous (and not so famous) accounts share some of the most disordered eating tips and macro hacks - even if they say they’re recovered from an ED. I’m sure they mean well and they think they’re helping but probably don’t realize it’s disordered right now. Bikini competitions and other diets are never recommended for anyone with a history of an eating disorder (or even without a history, there’s an increased risk of developing one).⁣

What’s helpful: tuning into your body and allowing it to guide you. It’ll tell you if something is off or right on. Intuitive Eating and Health At Every Size can help you reconnect with your body and improve health long term.

All diets (regardless of the credibility of the person recommending them) are still diets. They still don’t work. They still make us feel inadequate. They still result in binging. They still encourage guilt around food.

It’s active recovery day! 😂😂😂

There is absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying your food and what you eat, having pleasure is part of the human experience. .

"Bodies aren't meant to stay the same." -Robyn Nohling

Our bodies are meant to change over time! Whether it's puberty, age, pregnancy, menopause, illness, etc. bodies CHANGE and that's okay.
.
In fact , it's part of the beauty of living. We need to stop being scared of weight gain and fine lines and wrinkles and stretch marks...these are indicators that you have lived a full and happy life. .
I’m about to have a baby and the last thing on my mind is concerns over what my body will do. I trust my body knows what to do and there’s no me worrying about trying to control it. .
Don’t negate the wonderful memories with diet-culture, Beauty-standard bullshi*. Thank you @juliettendo for asking me to be your model and taking such wonderful maternity photos. You’re amazing!

The relationship we have with food mimics the relationship we have with other things in life: relationships, friends, work, school, parenting, boundaries, finances, chores, etc.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
☢️If you’re rigid with food, what else are you rigid with?⁣⁣
☢️If you binge on food, what else do “a lot” of?⁣⁣
☢️If you binge/purge, how else do you take on a lot before you hit the wall?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
When you are making peace with food, honoring your body cues, and tuning into your inner wisdom what else do you notice in your life? What is changing for the better? What else are you getting adventurous with and saying ‘yes’ to?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
With intuitive eating, you will either lose, gain, or stay the same weight - there’s no way to predict what size your body prefers to settle at. I say that loosely because our bodies will fluctuate the rest of our lives for various reasons - only Barbie stays the same.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
My point is, it can be challenging to accept the body we have been gifted when we make peace with food. I challenge you to look at the rest of your life and how much has opened up since you stopped restricting. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
You may choose to have the bigger, more meaningful life that doesn’t involve micromanaging your weight or every gram of food you eat. Many don’t realize how much time, energy, money, and brain space is spent on the pursuit of thinness until they begin to step away.⁣ The freedom that comes with that can be priceless.

The scary/exciting part: What will you fill that space with?

New food find for this Friday!
...
I love the convenience of ready to drink protein shakes!
...
This one is dairy free and NSF certified. This tells me it’s a quality protein drink, true to its claims. ...
180 calories, 7 gm fat, 12 gm carb, 20 gm protein. ...
Other flavors include vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry banana. ...
It’s been hard for me to find a dairy free RTD protein shake that tastes good and has a good reputation AND without a bunch of added stuff (ie ling ingredient list).
...
If you have one you like and think I should give it a try, let me know in the comments.

Time to get a bit uncomfortable!🤗
.
Weight bias is having negative attitudes, beliefs or judgements about individuals living in larger bodies. Weight bias is weaved through out much of culture from our healthcare systems to our education systems.
.
If you resonate with the concepts of thin = healthy and fat = unhealthy it’s time to look at your weight bias.
.
Here’s the truth, you can’t tell anything about someone’s health based on their body size. People in fat bodies are not necessarily unhealthy. People in thin bodies are not necessarily healthy. People of all sizes deserve respect. People of all sizes deserve sound medical advice.
.
It’s time we start talking about size when we talk about social justices!
