When I hit the taboo age of 40, after being married for 17 years and still being able to fit into my wedding dress, I realized I had been doing some things right.
As a photographer and actress in Los Angeles I was intimately aware of women’s bodies and how they change but I saw how mine wasn’t really changing. One day a woman asked me, “How do you keep your shape?” Just as I was about to chat with her, a friend cut me off and said “Don’t ask her, she’s naturally thin!” It really ticked me off. And I bit my tongue and thought “Heck no! I’m in my 40’s and live in a toxic world of fast food and processed food, so I MUST be making some conscious mindful choices when it comes to eating.”
And that’s exactly what I now work on with people; how to make food choices that aren’t based on only how you will look but also how you will feel. Little by little you will completely change the your relationship with food. My daughter’s body type is very different from mine but it’s been so rewarding to see how she has adopted my mindful eating habits even within the fast paced, fast food culture of a teenage lifestyle.
I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got.” Having been raised by my New York – Italian family I’ve figured out how to have the delicious AND the discipline.
In life you’re either getting better or you are getting worse. Nothing stays the same, it’s a law of the physical universe!
I find anything that makes you happy and isn’t harmful should be enjoyed. All the time.
