Food is Magical!

At 15 years old, I learned how to purge. 
⭐️
I didn’t really intend to learn how to do this, but my friends were doing it, and in the spirit of ‘Sisterhood’, I gave it a go. 
⭐️
Initially, it was a way to stop being “The Chubby Girl”. To stop feeling singled out, unloved, and unaccepted. 
⭐️
Over time, it became an escape. A release. A distraction. An obsession. 
⭐️
By the time I reached 25 years old, I was usually retaining less calories per day than are required by a toddler. 
⭐️
I had become afraid of food. 
⭐️
Scared of calories. 
⭐️
Joyless in life. 
⭐️
Distracted by my own thoughts. 
⭐️
I had forgotten a key fact about life on this plane: experiencing the Magic of food is my birthright. I was born knowing. I just forgot along the way. 
⭐️
Without the magic of food, eating is a chore. It becomes something that we do only to exist. 
⭐️
Or, it becomes something that we’re OVERdoing so that we can avoid the feelings that come along with presence. 
⭐️
In order to reclaim our birthright of Food Magic, we have to be present. We have to acknowledge and appreciate how we reached this point, release the judgement, and then reconnect to the Magic of food. 
⭐️
We were not put on this planet to weigh, measure, count, and obsess about the macros in food. 
⭐️
If someone else is telling you what to eat (diet plans, websites, magazines, or any other external source), you’re robbing yourself of the Magic of Food. 
⭐️
My goal in this lifetime is to show other women that food is not the enemy. It is Magical. The ability to appreciate food without using it as a weapon is also Magical.
⭐️
There is another way. It’s the way you were born. It’s magical. 
⭐️
I have a new program launching soon, and it’s magical.
