Dear women -- my friends, or people I would like to know but don't yet,
I spent many years as someone who looked like she "had it all." I got a good job at a management consulting firm, and lived in Manhattan, where I ate at fun restaurants and had friends and boyfriends.
I am grateful for all of it, but I also struggled for years with feeling crazy around food and my weight. And I couldn't shake the sense that, despite all the good in my life, I was on a scary treadmill to a life I didn't actually want.
Here's what I wish someone had told me then.
For the record:
- You are allowed to want what you want.
What kind of life would you live, if you knew that you were allowed to do whatever you want?
The repercussions of this lesson so powerfully and positively changed my life that I now coach others about how to resolve their food issues and live their best lives.
