For example, just because your sister has never weighed more than 125 pounds in her life and your best friend stays at a solid 140, doesn’t mean that it’s a “bad” thing if you fluctuate between 160 and 175.
In reality, health comes in many different shapes and sizes, and what constitutes a “healthy” weight is different for each one of us!
In fact, you’ll be in the best place to take care of your own health and well-being when you learn to reject the cultural fixation on thinness and reclaim what “healthy” means for you.
This is hard work. This won’t happen overnight. You will need to put in the effort to rewire the way you think about food, but your body (and your mind) will benefit greatly from doing so!
