Do You Need Shame or Self Hate to Motivate You?

Let me ask you something.

When you aren't perfect on your food plan, what thoughts begin to swim around in your head?

Do you beat the crap out of yourself?

I used to.

But I don't play that destructive game any more.

Do you tell yourself that you blew it, so you might as well eat whatever the hell you want for the rest of the day . . . the week . . . until Monday when you start again . . . or next month?

Would you say the things that you say to yourself to another human being?

Do you love yourself enough to start treating yourself the way a child deserves to be treated by a loving parent?

Are there other ways to eat healthy without lapsing into old poor habits that don't involve emotional wreckage?

Could you be curious and not judgmental?

Could you move on from your lapse and get right back on your healthy eating plan immediately?

I'm totally sure you could. You just need the right mental tools to change your relationship with food.

I'm here to tell you that there are other ways to motivate yourself to stay on whatever version of a healthy food plan you choose. You can do the work that Jack Canfield and Dave Andrews lay out in The 30 Day Sobriety Solution.

If you missed my blog post yesterday, or you hesitated at jumping in to our private, virtual book club, you've still got a little time to join. We're going to end this crazy cycle of diet, cheat, beat-up, lose it totally, and repeat. It's just not a winning formula.

Just head on back to yesterday's post for the details, or go ahead and send an e-mail to healthygirlskitchen@gmail.com with the words "30 Day" in the subject line. It's going to require a bit of hard work and dedication, but you'll be so glad you did this for yourself. You are worth it.

Thank you to everyone who already signed up! You guys are DA BOMB! XOXOXO

P.s. For those of you that have already signed up, I will be sending out follow up e-mails today with next steps.
