Do you ever feel like you must eat perfectly to be healthy, lose weight, or feel good? Do you find yourself obsessing over every calorie, macro, or food choice? If so, I want to remind you that there is no such thing as perfect eating, and it's okay to let go of that illusion.
The truth is that PRETTY GOOD IS GOOD ENOUGH to achieve any goal you want with your health, weight, or life for that matter.
You don't have to follow a strict diet, eliminate all your favorite foods, or punish yourself for every slip-up. You don't have to be perfect to be successful.
In fact, the more you obsess over trying to make it perfect, the slower your progress will become.
You might get trapped in all or nothing thinking:
"I'm either following the plan 100% (perfectly) or it's not worth doing at all." This kind of thinking can be paralyzing and demotivating, and it can lead to a cycle of guilt, shame, and self-sabotage.
Instead, I invite you to focus on progress, not perfection.
Celebrate your small wins, learn from your mistakes, and keep moving forward. Embrace a flexible and balanced approach to eating that allows you to enjoy your favorite foods, listen to your body, and honor your values.
Remember that health and happiness are not about being perfect, but about being content with who you are and where you are in life.
It's about finding balance and making choices that support your physical, emotional, and mental well-being. It's about cultivating meaningful relationships, pursuing your passions, and finding joy in the simple things.
It's about accepting your flaws and imperfections and learning to love yourself just the way you are.
Ultimately, health and happiness are about living a fulfilling life that brings you peace and satisfaction and not about eating perfectly.
