Go Kaleo’s Amber Rogers on her Facebook page:
The reason I struggled unsuccessfully with my weight for 25 years was because I was struggling with my weight.
My weight wasn’t the problem. My weight was a symptom of the problem.
The problem was my habits. I treated myself poorly. My internal dialogue was abusive and unkind. When I exercised I did it to punish myself, and when I dieted I allowed myself an inhumanely small amount of food. These are not behaviors and habits that will produce a healthy body. These behaviors tear a person down, reduce self esteem, trigger binge eating, make exercise unpleasant, reduce a human to nothing more than a collection of body parts that are treated with contempt. And I did it to myself. And I bet many of you reading this do it to yourself.
