Why Body Love Is BS

And here's how you can stop trying to "love yourself skinny."

On one hand, you have the diet industry telling you that your body weight is the entire source of your pain and suffering, and if only you could lose the weight, you would suddenly find yourself in a size 8 body, running along the beach with a sexy man (no sunscreen or hat, of course. That would mess with the fantasy)...

While simultaneously, you have the Instagram #bodylove Influencer...

My Secret Formula For Insane Happiness

You've made the decision.

Tomorrow you'll rise before dawn, work out like an Olympic athlete, and never eat cheesy fries again. Ever. And you mean it. Until your day turns to sh*t and you find yourself driving through the golden arches while the attendant asks you, "would you like guilt with that?"

Already wishing you could get a 'do-over' for 2018?

Let's talk about the gift of not giving a sh*t.

What is the gift of not giving a sh*t? It means I don't give a sh*t if I get my eating "perfect" or not.  I don't give a sh*t about "fresh starts" or trying to "get it right".
