The Dreaded Month of January

I don’t think you need to only eat soup for a month and I definitely don’t think you need to try drinking charcoal lemonade or a juice cleanse.
I think it’s great if January motivates people to try to change their lifestyle with the goal of health… but I generally hate the way people seem convinced to do it. I didn’t write this piece to discourage people from changing their lifestyle but to encourage them to love themselves at any size and know that the number on the scale doesn’t equate to healthy or unhealthy. Small tweaks can change the trajectory of your whole life. Those are the things that will make you feel healthier, have more confidence and more energy. Shifting priorities can help you make up your mind to stop dieting and start living a happier, healthier lifestyle
