How I’ve Learned To Accept My Body

I’ll tell you a short synopses of my workout routine throughout my life. I danced from a child until high school graduation. When I stopped dancing after high school I was shocked to see my muscle (specifically in my legs) disappear. The reality is that I wasn’t working out at all so naturally my body would change. However, because I’d been used to seeing my body a certain way for YEARS it felt different seeing it change.
When I was in my late 20’s I came to accept my body for what it is. I’ve learned that if I maintain a consistent workout schedule, my body will be toned and for the times I don’t it will change again.
I’ve come to recognize that the relationship I have with food determines how my body will function. I’ve realized my body will change for the rest of my life and that’s okay. I’m learning what I can control with my body is to ask myself, what foods I’m addicted to and WHY I want to eat something-is it because I’m actually hungry or because the food is in front of me or in the building or am I just craving it?
My point in telling you all this, is to not be so hard on yourself when it comes to your body because you only have one.
