This was me since I was 10 years old. Obsessed with my weight and my body shape, always comparing myself to others. This only got worse as I got older and had more control over my own food and exercise. I would restrict, binge, then punish myself and feel deep shame. My happiness seemed dependent on the numbers on the scale. I was miserable. I was desperate to learn how to be ok with my body the way it is, to finally break out of the dieting cycle, and I was so scared of passing my body image issues onto my children.
Five years ago I was looking in the mirror and I didn’t like what I saw. I wasn’t happy in my body. It affected everything about me. I wasn’t dressing the way I wanted to dress. I was avoiding outings and events. I was punishing myself with exercise. It consumed me.
I was constantly in the middle of one diet or another, I was never excited, and my body image and self-esteem overwhelmed me.
And the worst part is, I have a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Teaching, and yet I was struggling.
But one day I was again in front of the mirror, and it just struck me. “Alison, this is you. You only get one life, one body, and if you don’t love you, what kind of life is that?” And then it struck me that I was nice to everyone else, I was nice to my friends, I was nice to my students, I was nice to everyone around me, except Alison.
And that day I held myself in front of the mirror, and I said “Never again”.
And so I went back to the things I have learned, in my Bachelor of Science, in my Body Positive Facilitator certification (the irony), and I started creating a system to fall back in love with my body. I drew on my years of experience as an educator to create this system, and by the time I created this system, it took me from a place where I hated looking in the mirror, I hated putting on clothes because I felt like they show the kind of body I have, to a confident, proud, happy woman. Confident to make conversation at parties, confident to wear beautiful clothes. Confident to create and run courses, to host live events, to put myself out there.
And this is coming from a woman who was too afraid to even stand in front of a mirror. And it was because I moved away from body shame to body acceptance.
That’s what I invite you to do today. I invite you to take a step away from the shame, away from the same issues, all the things the world has put on you.
And that’s what I want you to do, to be able to look at yourself in the mirror and say “I am a goddess, I am amazing, and I am ready.”
And if you need the tools to do that quickly and more effectively, welcome to Your Body Your Rules.
