Riots Not Diets, Boo

You are about to be bombarded by January redemption narratives. Spandex-clad preachers selling the salvation myth that if you just eat seaweed for the next 30 days or pay for a live-in chef or buy their exercise DVDs at the low, low price of just $19.95/day you will drop those nagging 50 pounds and suddenly! magically! wondrously! fall in love, get the job, catch the boy, land the promotion, find $100k for the down-payment.

Don’t get suckered in. Don’t waste one more second of your precious life energy believing that you’ve gotta shrink in order to live big.

Start living big now. Be the person you think you’re only allowed to be after you lose the weight/get the degree/land the glamorous partner.

Our culture is steeped in these kinds of salvation myths. The idea that if you just transform your too-much body, you’ll transform your too-little life.

We have to start from a place of wholeness. You are exactly perfectly awesome as you are. You aren’t lacking a damn thing. And your success doesn’t depend upon your shrinking.

My greatest joys did not come when I was a size two. (Some of my loneliest moments did.) Happiness isn’t predicated upon a number on the scale. So put your energy into feeding yourself well and buying local and moving your body in ways that bring you alive. The joy will follow. Joy doesn’t give a f**k what size jeans you wear.
