money like?</h1>\r\nDo you see any correlation between your relationship with eating and spending money?\r\n\r\nWe often talk about “being in relationship” with someone or something: Our relationship with our spouse, with food, with our bodies, and yes even with money. And when we talk about being in relationship it really just means the way we feel, think and communicate around that topic or with that person. Like any relationship, feelings ebb and flow and change over time. Sometimes the relationship deepens, sometimes it sours and sometimes it has us feeling conflicted. But, most relationships are delicate and require ample communication, respect and trust. Today I want to talk about the similarities between how we relate to money and to food. You may be surprised at the commonalities and how we show up in relationship to both the same way. Do you agree? I look forward to your comments below.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>Scarcity vs. Abundance</h1>\r\nAs with money, the term of scarcity with food brings about great anxiety. And in times of economic downturns or recessions, there might not only be scarcity with money and jobs but likely also with nutritious food. Unlike with money, however, scarcity with food can sometimes be a psychological or self-prescribed phenomena by way of extreme dieting. Done enough times, self-prescribed scarcity with food can become a precursor for binge eating and an overall mistrust around food and one\'s ability to bring nutritional balance into their lives.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>Budgeting</h1>\r\nMany people who have ever dieted see calories as a budget that they have to spend on food and drink per day, much like a monetary budget. One thereby needs to decide where to “spend” or “save” that money or those calories and if the purchase was a sound investment (into their bodies or bank accounts). Unlike micromanaging money, however, micromanaging calories can lead to tremendous angst and can shut off our ability to derive pleasure from food.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>Excitement, Freedom and Pleasure</h1>\r\nHave you ever had a windfall of money come your way unexpectedly by way of a bonus or scratch card? Your heart may soar, excitement builds and fantasies arise about how you’ll spend, save or allocate that money. Now imagine that feeling arising from an unexpected neighbor popping by with a batch of fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies. Or the pleasure derived when a delicious cold drink is served to you on a beach. With both money and food, there is the opportunity for feelings of excitement, joy and pleasure. Sadly, however, like money that feeling of bliss is often tainted by our own conflicted feelings about that food or complications that can arise from eating it. The pristine moment of pleasure is interrupted by our own narrative and stories around the choice to eat or drink it much like the way we feel with an indulgence purchase. It\'s a mixture of both pleasure and guilt. This speaks much more about our societal views on indulgence, hedonism and pleasure than anything else but no less plays a role in dampening our experience.\r\n<h1>Investments</h1>\r\nInvestments in your long term financial health or long-term investments into your physical health and longevity by way of what you eat.\r\n<h1>Waste</h1>\r\nWe can draw correlations between terms like “you’re just throwing away money” or “That was a complete waste of money” or “Money doesn’t grow on trees!” (like food) with the type of food waste and guilt associated with that that occurs in restaurants and our households daily. The concept of waste or unnecessary use of commodities is a charged area for many of us and speaks to a larger socio-economic and environmental issue in our society.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nDoes our relationship with money mirror our relationship with food?

What other ways do you see connections between money and food?\r\n\r\nSound off below!\r\n<div style=\"display: none;\"><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/money-and-food.png\" /></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:34:\"What Money and Food have in Common\";s:12:\"post_excerpt\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_status\";s:7:\"publish\";s:14:\"comment_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:11:\"ping_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:13:\"post_password\";s:0:\"\";s:9:\"post_name\";s:17:\"money-food-common\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2017-06-21 08:12:15\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-06-21 12:12:15\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=1870\";s:10:\"menu_order\";i:0;s:9:\"post_type\";s:4:\"post\";s:14:\"post_mime_type\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"comment_count\";s:1:\"2\";s:6:\"filter\";s:3:\"raw\";}i:1;O:7:\"WP_Post\":24:{s:2:\"ID\";i:1982;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2017-09-11 19:52:49\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-09-11 23:52:49\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:6897:\"<img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-1983\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/How-to-Stop-Mindless-Eating.png\" alt=\"How to Stop Mindless Eating\" width=\"800\" height=\"800\" />\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">One of the number one things I hear my clients tell me is that they often eat mindlessly, when they’re not hungry and often because the food is “just there.”  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Raise your hand if you too have fallen prey to the “If it’s there you’ll eat it” syndrome.  Brian Wansink of the book Mindless Eating (which I highly recommend by the way!) discusses this phenomenon a lot.  The simple act of having food in front of you makes you far more likely to eat it, even when physically our bodies do not need food.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">This fact can benefit us or be to our detriment.   How can it help you ask?  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Well, making sure there are fruits and vegetables in ample supply in your fridge and countertop, for instance, can make it more likely that you eat those foods.  When I have cut up cukes and red peppers on the counter when my kiddos get home from school this is what they eat!  If I have crackers and chips out, well...you can guess what they’re snacking on.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">It can be a detriment to us, however, when we are attempting to make more balanced or healthier choices in our diets but end up snacking on “whatever’s around” just because it’s easy and in front of us.  Then we overeat, almost without awareness, feel frustrated and question whether we can ever sustain these newer behaviors for the long haul.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">When I talk about <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/empowered-eater\">eating empowerment</a>, this is exactly what I mean.  We can take the reigns and plan for steps in our environment that will honor our hunger and prevent us from being in situations where we feel powerless around the foods that are in front of us.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I call this type of eating empowerment - <a href=\"https://app.convertkit.com/landing_pages/263580?v=6\">Location Organization</a>.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1 style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400; color: #ff0000;\">&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; <a href=\"https://app.convertkit.com/landing_pages/263580?v=6\">Download my 11 page workbook on Location Organization and set yourself up strong to avoid mindless eating.</a> &lt;&lt;&lt;&lt;&lt;</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">What this is is actually structuring our environments (home, work, car, travel) to have us feeling in control and with a thoughtful plan with respect to eating.  Will it always work?  No, of course not.  But, with time, persistence and practice, we can begin to detect patterns in our eating habits and especially when we feel vulnerable to mindless eating to short circuit what we’ve always done and replace these outdated, unsupportive behaviors with more intentional healthy ones. </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Here are just a few ways to do this:</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Home Environment.</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<ul>\r\n <li><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Have baggies of cut up veggies or melon prepped and in the fridge</span></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<ul>\r\n <li><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Keep foods that you tend to snack endlessly and mindlessly on more out of reach.</span></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<ul>\r\n <li><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Avoid the kitchen when you know you’re not hungry, move into a different space of your home</span></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Work Environment</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<ul>\r\n <li><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Ask if you can utilize a fridge or rent one for your office to keep fresh snacks in.</span></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<ul>\r\n <li><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Plan to eat beforehand with what you had already decided to eat before joining co-workers for pizza.</span></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<ul>\r\n <li><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Keep nuts, bananas, dried fruits, baby carrots at your desk.</span></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">In your Car</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I don’t usually advocate to people to eat in their cars it can be unavoidable at times and I’d rather a client feel full and grounded than walk in the door completely starving at their destination and feeling less in control.  Here are some ideas.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<ul>\r\n <li><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Keep a cooler filled with snacks you enjoy and that are filling and balanced to avoid the ravenous cabinet raid when you get home.</span></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<ul>\r\n <li><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Bring a thermos with a pre-made smoothie with you.</span></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<ul>\r\n <li><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Keep trail mix and other non-perishable healthy snacks in the car as an emergency stash.</span></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Also, with all of these situations, I want you to bring intention and <span style=\"color: #ff0000;\"><a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/5-myths-mindful-eating\">mindfulness to your eating experience</a>,</span> whenever possible.  Limit distractions like eating in front of the TV or computer and check in with yourself.  Are you eating out of boredom?  Because it’s there? Because other people around you are picking?  If at a restaurant could you ask the waiter to take away the leftovers or pack them up?  Can you move into the living room where there is less an association with eating? Bringing awareness to what is happening around you and inside you will help you take a stop, look and listen approach to eating in general which will mitigate the mindless eating loop.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Good luck and be sure to <a href=\"https://app.convertkit.com/landing_pages/263580?v=6\">download this free supplementary 11-page workbook</a> to help you more carefully plan out your eating environments for greater empowerment and peace surrounding your eating episodes.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Join me LIVE on Wednesday, September 13th at 4:30pm eastern on my <a href=\"https://www.facebook.com/groups/1738140356456267/\">Wellness warriors</a> page and again at 5pm eastern on my <a href=\"https://www.facebook.com/jennyedencoaching/\">business Facebook page</a> for an interactive workshop on 7 pillars to eating empowerment.  See you there!</span>\r\n<div style=\"display: none;\"><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/7-Unusual-Ways-to-Relieve-1.png\" /></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:27:\"How to Stop Mindless Eating\";s:12:\"post_excerpt\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_status\";s:7:\"publish\";s:14:\"comment_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:11:\"ping_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:13:\"post_password\";s:0:\"\";s:9:\"post_name\";s:20:\"stop-mindless-eating\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:45:\"\nhttp://jennyedencoaching.com/empowered-eater\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2017-10-22 15:13:49\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-10-22 19:13:49\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=1982\";s:10:\"menu_order\";i:0;s:9:\"post_type\";s:4:\"post\";s:14:\"post_mime_type\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"comment_count\";s:1:\"1\";s:6:\"filter\";s:3:\"raw\";}i:2;O:7:\"WP_Post\":24:{s:2:\"ID\";i:2044;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2017-11-06 12:24:00\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-11-06 17:24:00\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:11306:\"<img class=\"aligncenter wp-image-2045 size-full\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/11-Reasons-Why-I-Stopped-Dieting-and-why-you-should-too.png\" alt=\"dieting tips\" width=\"800\" height=\"800\" />\r\n<h1></h1>\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Many people who know me are shocked when they find out I stopped dieting for good.  </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Why?  Because I was a dieting champ and it\'s pretty much all I talked about.  In fact, I made dieting and weight loss <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/i-was-a-professional-dieter\"><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">my profession</span></a>!  </span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">So why the abrupt change?  </span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Basically I woke up to the fact that dieting was detrimental to me in so many ways.  The only good thing about it was the actual (temporary) weight loss, which inevitably lasted about 2 minutes before I went back on the upward swing and I’d start again anew.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">And the downsides were infinite.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">What a crazy and miserable cycle.  I started to call the whole process <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/dejavu-dieting\">“Dejavu” dieting </a> because it was all so familar!</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">So below are my top 11 reasons why I officially stopped dieting made some powerful mindset shifts.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I get it.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">There is this amazing promise and hope that dieting gives us.  When we boil it down to our most authentic desires though, it really isn’t about the weight loss.  It’s about our need to feel good in our skin, our desire for love and acceptance and admiration and our pursuit of health.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">And guess what?  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I can guarantee you that you can have all of that and way more without ever dieting again or stepping on a scale.  Below are 11 reasons why I stopped dieting and some powerful mindset shifts to help give you what you really want in life.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">1.To reduce stress response and inflammation in my body</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Your body perceives dieting as an actual stressor on the body.  I mean why else would we be depriving it of food when hungry or specific nutrients or food groups unless there was a famine or some other type of crisis.  When we undergo a stress response day-in and day-out through dieting, our bodies respond by secreting stress hormones which alter our hunger hormones, create inflammation and increase fat storage while decreasing muscle mass (after all, your body is in preservation mode). Stopping the dieting and adopting a <a href=\"http://jenny-eden.teachable.com/p/my-7-day-email-course-fast-track-to-slow-eating/?preview=logged_out\">mindful/intuitive eating</a> approach can stop the inflammation and allow your body to release weight naturally and with flow rather than force.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">2. To develop internal wisdom vs external wisdom</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">When I dieted, I only focused on external factors: What the scale said, which expert suggested what and what time it was. (because even if I was hungry at 4pm, I’d force myself to wait until 6pm to eat).  Developing and honoring internal wisdom is far more useful because it means you’re listening to your body rather than an expert who doesn’t know you and your own biochemical and lifestyle needs.  Honoring your internal hunger cues can guide you to a place of eating when your body is communicating to you it needs nourishment, thereby rewarding you with satiety.  Again, it’s about flow, not force.  It’s about accepting and honoring your appetite.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">3. To be less fearful of food </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Dieting made me orthorexic.  I was literally scared of certain foods and made food a moral issue when it’s simply energy.  I felt victorious when I ate certain foods and guilty when I ate others.  That is giving food a lot of power!!  Now I realize that food is to be enjoyed and not to be fearful of (unless of course you have a life-threatening allergy to food) and that paradigm shift in my mind about food has made such a difference in my ability to truly bring awareness and pleasure to the eating experience again.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">4. To trust my body more </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I did not trust myself….at all.  I trusted diet experts who never met me more than my own body and the communication and feedback it gave me throughout the day.  Stopping dieting gave me an opportunity to trust that my body, like all bodies, need our care which includes trust, communication and respect.  We trust our bodies to breathe naturally and correctly so why don’t we trust it to eat naturally and correctly too?</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">5. To not base my self worth on a scale</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> Down a pound or more meant I was awesome and successful and felt incredible.  Up, even a half a pound, meant my day was ruined, that I was a failure and I felt hopeless.  Now, that I rarely weigh myself, I focus instead on the self-care and healthy behaviors I do daily.  Because ultimately that is WAY more important than what the scale said which never takes into account fluid shifts, constipation, hormone shifts, medication changes or any other variables which could affect the scale that particular day.  I cannot say enough how particularly freeing this aspect of diet cessation has been for me.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">6. To stop obsessing about food </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">If I tell you right now to not think of an elephant, where is the first place your mind goes?  Right, exactly!  Telling yourself not to think about food and to manipulate and control our appetites, trying to tame it, only makes us obsess about it more.  Creating random food rules makes us apt to break them.  Creating false scarcity around food makes us fearful and keeps food in the forefront of our minds because we will be fearful of someone taking it away.  I now adopt an abundance mindset around food.  Every and all foods are available to me, whenever I want, and as much of it as I want.  And guess what?  I don’t obsess anymore.  I eat when I’m hungry and stop when I’m full.  I mostly choose healthy, nourishing foods and don’t sweat it when I don’t because I savor every bite of the comfort foods, which allows me to feel satisfied with much less of it.  And since I know it will always be available to me, so I don’t create a “last supper” syndrome and go off the deep end.  If you want to learn how to make this critical mindset shift, <a href=\"https://jennyedencoaching.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php\"><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">click here to set up a 6-week 1:1 session package with me</span></a>.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">7. To stop being my own food police  </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I created false scarcity and would police myself with arbitrary and random rules that I would often break.  The penalty for the “crime” was deep loathing and frustration with myself and being angry at my body for what it was.  Now that there is no more food police around and I’ve been set free, there is no more shame, frustration and force.  Truly, this is a gift you can give yourself.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">8. To enjoy being in social situations again  </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I was scared to go to parties.  I dreaded going on vacation.  I often refused to go out to dinner with a friend.  Why?  Because I was scared of overeating or “breaking” my diet.  When dieting and the pursuit of weight loss prevents you from being with people you love and enjoying yourself in social situations, you know it’s time to look at things differently.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">9. To stop intermittently being ravenous and miserable </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">No two ways about it.  Dieting made me resentful, bitter and miserable.  I hated being hungry all the time and just watching the clock until I could have my next snack or meal.  I hated being left out of social situations and longingly looking at other people enjoying food. I hated being irritable with my friends and family.  And, feeling lightheaded, irritable, and ravenous with 3 little girls to take care of is kind of a nightmare. So is trying to workout when you feel that way.  I even remember waking up in the middle of the night, starving, just waiting until morning when I could eat again.  Make no mistake.  I believed I could not lose weight UNLESS I went to these types of extreme measures.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1></h1>\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">10.

I needed a career change and stat.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nThat was 2 years ago, when I changed my illustrious dieting career for good.  I remember it vividly.  After a year of unproductive  gluten-free and vegan dieting, (which had promised to heal my body and help me lose weight and didn’t), I caved and <span style=\"color: #ff0000;\"><a style=\"color: #ff0000;\" href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/how-giving-up-gluten-made-me-orthorexic\">gorged on pizza and bread sticks</a></span> at my local block party.  I felt so scared, so ashamed, so worried that it would result in an immediate weight gain.  So back again, I thought, to scouring the “dieting classified section”, searching for my next diet, my next challenging “job”.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nAt the same time this event happened, I was also studying to get my Certificate in Eating Psychology.  I had gone to see my endocrinologist to monitor my hypothyroidism (one of the many things I blamed for my career in yo-yo dieting), and I was shocked, absolutely shocked when I saw the number on the scale when she weighed me.  So much higher than I ever thought possible for someone who was literally vegan and gluten free for a year and exercised vigorously and regularly.  What was wrong with me?  Fantasies of full-on starvation diets ensued, which left me with waves of sadness and anxiety.  It dawned on me in that moment …..that nothing was wrong with me.  This is me.  This is where my body wants to be and why do I keep bullying it relentlessly into a shape and weight it simply doesn’t want to be at?  If I continue to focus on balanced, healthy, unrestricted eating, yoga and joyful exercise (kettle bells are my jam!) then why isn’t that good enough?  Bottom line:  It IS.  I gratefully ended my career as a professional chronic dieter that very day and haven’t looked back.  I have not stepped on a scale since.\r\n\r\nAre there days that I long to be thin again?  Absolutely.  The feeling of being thin is alluring and addictive.  This ideal of thinness continues to be perpetuated  in our society and is an unsustainable goal.  You know what I don’t miss, though?  Obsessing about every calorie, spending 70% of my day thinking about what I will eat, what the number on the scale will be that day, my self-worth being defined for the day on whatever the scale reveals, and exercising in a relentless and punishing way that caused me injury, and grief.  Can anyone relate?\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/i-was-a-professional-dieter/professional-dieter_\" rel=\"attachment wp-att-1163\"><img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-1163\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/professional-Dieter_.jpg\" alt=\"dieting\" width=\"800\" height=\"800\" /></a>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nAre there days that demons creep up and poke me on the shoulder saying “Time to diet!  You’ve got a wedding coming up!”  Yes.  And when those demons visit, I welcome them in and ask them why they’re there and what I can learn from them.  I question them.  And ultimately I heave a huge sigh of relief, realizing that I don’t in fact have to diet again.  This makes me feel freer and happier than ever.  And it’s this absence of the need to diet that has made food pleasurable to me again.  I know I won’t overeat or binge because nothing is off-limits.  I don’t have to be afraid of food anymore.  And even though I don’t weigh myself, I know that I’m maintaining (albeit a little heavier than a few years ago) because my clothes fit.  I am stronger and more fit than ever and most importantly, I am at peace.  My friends and family constantly remark to me that I don’t look stressed anymore -  that I’m more at ease and that I look  healthy and happy.  It’s because I am!\r\n\r\n[bctt tweet=\"And ultimately I heave a huge sigh of relief, realizing that I don’t in fact have to diet again\" username=\"coachjennyeden\"]\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nI’ve chosen to stop dieting and weighing myself, but as a traditional weight loss counselor for over 13 years, I’ve been able to make the conclusion that previous, rigid  methods of dieting do not lead to permanent weight loss.

Beyond Weight Loss


Trust me.  I know what it’s like when you have a goal around your health or weight and your body seems to have a different plan.  I know the frustration when you’re “doing everything right” and yet your body won’t seem to comply with what you’ve been told will work.  I even know the pain of hating on your body when it doesn’t do what you want it to do or behave in concordance with your myriad shoulds…


“My body SHOULD be able to run 5 miles by now.”


“I SHOULD have lost 8 pounds by now.”


“My symptoms SHOULD have healed by now.”


“I’ve done x, y, z and my body SHOULD be feeling amazing.”


With all of our “shoulds”, expectations and stories it’s no wonder our bodies can’t keep up!


What we end up doing with all the “shoulding” is disconnect from listening.  We move from honoring our bodies to beating up on them.  We go from being fully functioning and healthy selves to bodies that we think need to be “fixed” or tamed or self-shamed into obedience.  Also, too much “shoulding” creates low-level stress in our bodies which eventually causes inflammation which makes your body even less likely to feel healthy or release weight (if that is something you’re looking to do).


Before I officially stopped dieting, 2 years ago, I would chastise my body for not complying to the norms of my typical weight loss trajectories.  “What?” I would say.  “Last time I dieted, I lost 5 pounds the first week, and now it’s only 3!  What’s wrong with me?”  I would wonder.


I didn’t stop to honor what was my reality right now: That my 41 year old body was different than my 31 year old body.  That the body that hadn’t yet housed 3 babies was different than one that carried my 3 beautiful daughters.  I didn’t think to think that nothing was wrong with me and that was simply what the behaviors I did that week earned me.  I didn’t realize that it needn’t be a call to arms or a redoubling of efforts to accomplish what once was.  I didn’t understand that I didn’t need to bully myself through excessive, stressful exercise or by skipping dinner that night.  I learned later that those games merely set me back further and made me miserable, resentful and irritable.

Let me save you the element of surprise:


Your body won’t always cooperate with your timelines, your judgements of what is successful or adjust itself to your external whims and expectations.  Your body, thankfully, is smarter than that and above all else wants to protect you.  


Your body won’t always cooperate with your timelines Click To Tweet


What it will do, however, is communicate with you, give you feedback and teach you how to care for it – your job in return is to listen closely, honor and trust what it tells you.  For it’s this intrinsic wisdom and deep listening that ultimately and completely bring you happiness in your skin – apart from the “shoulds,” stories and beseeching.  


After a lot of soul-searching, I realized that my body only cooperated when I cooperated and “played nice” with it.  When I jettisoned my own version of what my body should be and honored, loved and accepted what it actually is, I finally found peace and freedom.  


It was this paradigm shift that changed everything for me.  And it can for you too.


How many “shoulds” have you placed on your body today?  This week?  This lifetime?  


Don’t belabor what your body is not doing or how it is not cooperating and shift your thinking towards how you can cooperate with it.  Where can you dig in, get curious, and start listening? And more importantly, where can you let go of stories, judgements, fear, and shoulds?


Are you “shoulding” yourself to the point of where your body has ceased to cooperate with you?  Take my quiz to find out!
