A Quick Note on Your Body from Geneen Roth

“When we give up dieting, we take back something we were often too young to know we had given away: our own voice.  Our ability to make decisions about what to eat and when. Our belief in ourselves. Our right to decide what goes into our mouths. Unlike the diets that appear monthly in magazines or the thermal pants that sweat off pounds, unlike a lover or a friend or a car, your body is reliable.  It doesn’t go away, get lost, stolen. If you listen, it will speak.”
