“For some reason, we are truly convinced that if we criticize ourselves, the criticism will lead to change. If we are harsh, we believe we will end up being kind. If we shame ourselves, we believe we end up loving ourselves. It has never been true, not for a moment, that shame leads to love. Only love leads to love.” – Geneen Roth
In this episode of IMperfectly Healthy, I interview Kyla Sokoll-Ward – a self-love coach on a mission to change the way women relate to themselves. She teaches women to love their fears, trust the universe, and redefine their worthiness so that they can fall in love with themselves and step into their badass feminine power. She spent years perfecting her body and diet, hoping it would bring her happiness (spoiler alert: it didn’t). But once she kicked her limiting beliefs, found body bliss, and embraced unconditional self-love, there was no turning back.
Kyla and I share a lot of truths about the food/body struggle. We have both been there. If you struggle in this area, I know it is hard to hear — its not about food and your body….b/c it really feels like it is. We totally get that. I am encouraging you to dive a little deeper for yourself. Really think about how what we talk about, could apply to you and your life.
In this episode, you are going to hear Kyla and I chat about:
- her path to finding freedom from orthorexia, body shame, the diet/binge cycle, over-exercising and clean eating righteousness.
- how struggling with your body/food is only a symptom.
- how your beliefs are at the core of your suffering.
- why the end goal is not to always love your body.
- the pattern we call the “Weighting” Game.
- what you must give up to experience food freedom.
- how the foundation of health is mental/emotional.
- why we as humans hold on to struggle.
- how disconnection and the food/body obsession go hand and hand.
- how clean eating is often an excuse for disordered eating.
- how we are seeking desired feelings through external means.
