    @MadisonMolly2017 shared this self-reflection and wisdom regarding the power of how we choose to think of ourselves...

    So I think I’d the Identity of someone who maintains effortlessly...
    I think of friends I know who are normal weight, active, make healthy food choices...and food is not a “pull” on them.

    So, Inwas walking down the sidewalk to do a Starbucks pick up, and Really took a look in the store windows as I did so (usually haven’t in my life)

    And the Identity comment popped into my head.
    “I am a person who: stands tall & lean with a long confident stride.” And then a feeling came over me -and these friends- and I began to image what they would be doing/saying to themselves. Inhabiting or trying on their identity. They would have ordered differently- less sweet, smaller sizes.

    So I then adopted that
    “I am a person who orders small sizes & chooses the healthiest option, but prefers to eat at home with her own delicious meals”

    That instead of:
    I can’t eat out
    Ok you can have a “treat” once a day
    Oh well at least it was a grande not a venti
    No bargaining
    No fighting my old habits & family of origins modeled eating..

    A NEW identity -
    eats when hungry, wouldn’t think if it otherwise

    Would never overeat, feels awful

    Looks in store windows at svelte self- happy confident

    Uses her energy to pursue interests & help others - not fill time eating out

    Handles emotions is ways that work - wouldn’t think of eating to squelch them

    Etc.

    Then I realized before I’d called it a new mindset, but your Identity is embedded, it’s who you are... deeper. And it’s no longer a willpower thing

    Hope this help,
    Maddie

    Amazing! Thanks so much for sharing @MadisonMolly2017 I really got alot out of this!!!
