Additional kilos? How to accept your body as it is

What a beautiful and tasty looking dessert

So I am just going to consciously and fully savour it even though I wish I were a few kilos lighter. 

The reason I am able to do so is because I HAVE A TOTALLY NEW RELATIONSHIP WITH MY BODY. 

I now love my body and I have a healthy relationship with food. But that has not always been the case.

I have struggled for years to “lose” weight. Until the moment I realized that my “extra” kilos were actually not “real overweight”. 

Indeed, THOSE KILOS THAT I KEPT considering as “additional” served a VERY SPECIAL FUNCTION FOR MY BODY. 

Here are some of the multiple yet unconscious motives for holding onto additional kilos

  • owning one’s personal or professional place or space in life
  • owning one’s place in the family 
  • being more present by taking more space
  • memories of sexual assaults, whether on oneself, in the family, or in the bloodline
  • need for belonging
  • need for control
  • need for protection or security and so on

Since I have found the personal challenge I need to address, I have stopped hating and blaming my body. 

I have finally come to understand myself in this matter! I have realised that my body is on my team and that it is my best friend and always acts in my best interest. 

This change of perspective was essential to enhance my relationship with my body. And I managed to do it thanks to kinesiology sessions.
