Wednesday Wisdom ~ You are not Your Body!

Happy Wednesday Friends!

On today’s ‘Wednesday Wisdom’ I share about the idea of loving every part of your body. This morning I was all bummed because I woke up with this lil teeny tiny patch of psoriasis under my eye. It’s so small (and you can hardly see it) but to me it seems huge! It is so easy to get all caught up in teeny, tiny little flaws in and on our bodies like a blemish, a grey hair or a few extra pounds. But our little blemishes are not who we really are; so let’s agree to not let them define us! I know that I am not my body ~ I am a loving, beautiful soul and so are you!

Check out this week’s video blog to learn how important it is to love who you are on the inside!

I would love to hear your wisdom! How do you cope with the things about your body that you think others will judge you on?  How do you learn to love who you are on the inside?

Please leave a comment on the blog so we can all learn from you!

All love

    Hi Jodi: This installment was/is of particular interest to me and here’s why:
    When I started seeing a weight loss physician at Duke Medical Center last year, he commented on my psoriasis found on my knees, elbows, a few knuckles, a thumb and fore finger, and hidden in my scalp. Wow, in writing this I realize how pervasive this condition was. His comment was “Oh we’ll take care of that, it will go away in time.” True to his word, all but a small lingering site on my right knee have gone away. The culprit? Sugar!

    Dr. Eric Westman studied with Dr. Atkins of low carb fame and now offers his own clinic and several books on updated studies and information on the largest epidemic in our world today, that of our obsession and addiction to carbohydrates, particularly of the refined variety and most egregious of all, sugar in all of it’s forms.

    I have lost 32 pounds in 14 months, my B/P has descended from 160/95 to 130/62, my cholesterol numbers have improved in every way, and my metabolic syndrome indicators have begun to recede as my ability to process food more efficiently has been restored. I could go on and on, but the truth for me is that protein is king along with fat – the very things we’ve been taught to shun. Perhaps the book “Why we are fat and what to do about it” by Gary Taubes explains it best. I commend it to you and if you wish, I will share Dr. Westman’s six page primer on how to start and do a low carb diet where everything turns around in favor of ourselves as we were intended to be fed and cared for.

    As always, love to you,

    John
