Molly Galbraith - Body Acceptance- Summer Shorts 2014, #4 -youtube video
I love Molly Galbraith's take on body acceptance.
Here are my "notes" below:
From someone who has been all over the scale, this is worth 20 minutes. Great messaging- IMO.
Pick one trait: When I lost weight, I don't look like the super skinny minnie's. That's okay, I'm the short curvy one with a little lose skin and stronger muscles. I'll take that.
Food as fuel: Yes, as long as it doesn't trigger. And, not using food to "numb out"
Find your must have: Good quality fat- avocado, coconut oil, etc.
Aesthetic goals: my strength training is for my bone health, it gives me a nice look, too- IMO.
Scale: doesn't make me crazy, I use it as a tool. Photos, too.
Measures: Water jug at work!!, Inflammation- hs-CRP is low,
Other people: If people say bad things about you, it's about how they think about yourself.
Train because you love your body: for me, I love my bones and good bone health.
