Your Weight won't be in Your Obituary
Your Weight Won't be in your Obituary First: Check out my new program! The Food and Moore Nutrition Counseling Program is up and running. It’s a 12-session, personalized program to help you improve your relationship with food so you can free up from compulsive and emotional eating. I’ll teach you a new approach to eating so you can feel confident in your food choices and – because the way you eat is a microcosm of the way you do everything – you’ll feel confident in every area of your life. Apply for the program here. Back to the matter at hand: Your weight won’t be in your obituary. Pretty grim topic, I know, but I want to put something into perspective. It’s spring, and I’m hearing a lot of women complain about their body size and shape and how they’re going to look in photographs. Weddings, graduations, vacations, etc, etc. I can certainly understand wanting to look your best in photos. In this day of manic photo journaling that memorializes every moment of our lives on half a dozen social media platforms, you see and judge your body size and shape all the time. But is that really who you are? Many, many years from now, your friends, sisters, brothers, neighbors, colleagues, and your kids are going to look at pictures and think back to these days and remember not your weight, but who you really were. Your love, your humor, the way you made people feel comfortable, that funny face you made when trying not to laugh, that other funny face you made holding back tears of joy because you’re so proud of him/her/them. That you were always there. And how you were forever grateful to be included in their lives. So, with all the things you have to focus on this spring, all the ways you want to be present for the people you love, please don’t focus on or try to diet or squish your body into a size or shape you’re not. They love you for who you really are. Get on board with that. Much love, Jennifer EXCITING NEW THING! I’m calling it "Meet ‘n’ Eat" – let me explain. On the first Tuesday of each month, you’re invited to join me and a fun group of women for mediation, dinner, and conversation. We’ll meet virtually so you don’t have to drive or find parking! It’ll start at 6:30pm, for an hour or so. We’ll start with a short meditation, eat a meal together from the comfort of your own home (BYOD), and enjoy casual conversation that will likely center around holistic nutrition, mindfulness, and self-compassion. I get so excited about the collective wisdom of a group! Women support each other so beautifully. A $10 donation is appreciated to join in. All you have to do is contact me to let me know you’re coming. Next one is Tuesday, June 7, so mark your calendar now.
