A client told me this was the first Thanksgiving she wasn’t worried about eating — how great is that?!
So I want to invite you to check in with yourself — if you participated in Thanksgiving, how was it? How were you? How was Friday, how was the rest of the weekend? How are you feeling this morning?
Seriously. Did you have any rest from obsessive food thoughts or were you constantly judging yourself for what was on your plate, on your fork, in your belly...? Were you mad at how you looked on Friday? Did you set some New Year’s Resolutions a few weeks early? Does today mark (yet another) fresh start on food?
If the answers to any of those Qs were yes, I want to let you know — it’s possible to not be afraid on Thanksgiving. It’s possible to not feel guilty for how you eat. It’s possible to approach your body and food with equanimity, even with pleasure!, instead of with shame and self-hatred. I know because I’ve done it, and I help women do it.
The holidays will just keep coming around. What if the way you felt toward your food and body was revolutionized by this time next year, in a way that meant that there was never a meal, including Thanksgiving, you were ever afraid of, or had to atone for, or detox from, ever again?
I want this for you. I can make it happen. Reach out for help.
About Holland Hettinger
Hi, I’m Holland Hettinger, and I help women stop binge-eating. I believe your life doesn’t have to revolve around food. Your mind can think about something other than what you eat. You don’t have to shrink yourself and hide your body. There is an alternative to food guilt and body shame. And none of it includes dieting, meal prepping, weighing yourself, or forcing yourself not to binge-eat for just one—more—day. (Insert sigh of relief here.) Through training videos, coaching emails, and one-on-one work, I teach women to stop binge-eating for good.
