Let me guess. You have a confusing relationship with commitment because you've tried so hard in the past to commit to this diet and to that diet, and you've ended up failing at all of them.
You feel like a failure, and that nothing's going to work for you, so why commit at all?
I understand. You are not alone. I used to struggle with that myself.
I want to reframe commitment. Don’t commit to a diet. Don’t commit to a new way of eating.
Commit to yourself and to the life that you want to be living.
Commit to learning what you need to learn in order to get over the food crazies and start to have a relationship with food and with your body that feels easeful.
It might sound impossible, but I promise it is possible with the right teachings and with the right mindset.
Commit to the journey. Commit to the life-long journey that it is to live in a body. Commit to the life-long journey that it is to understand how to eat in a way that leaves you feeling at ease instead of out of control.
I guarantee it, in this commitment, you will stumble along the way, you will fall, you will trip up, and that that is all part of it. That is where you get to learn how to grow and change even more.
Today for your tiny action, I want you to understand what it is that you want your life to be like in that life-long journey.
Not about what size you want to be or what food you want to eat, or any of those things. But what you want to experience on the life-long journey of living the way you want to live.
Commit to it, and then realize that all you have to do is take just the next step.
You're not trying to get to the end of the journey, you're just trying to keep taking your next step and your next one and your next one along the path.
Commit to the journey.
