The following is a pledge from Dr. Linda Bacon’s groundbreaking book, Health at Every Size; The Surprising Truth About Your Weight, reprinted here with her permission. I thought making this Pledge could be a wonderful way to begin this very weekend. What do you think?
LIVE WELL PLEDGE
Today, I will try to feed myself when I am hungry.
Today, I will try to be attentive to how foods taste and make me feel.
Today, I will try to choose foods that I like and that make me feel good.
Today, I will try to honor my body’s signals of fullness.
Today, I will try to find an enjoyable way to move my body.
Today, I will try to look kindly at my body and to treat it with love and respect.
