Hey soul sister!

You are in for a real treat. Today’s soul sister chat interview is filled with a lot of juicy stuff.

We chat with our mentor, coach and friend Jill from Jillfit. We learn so much from her and know you will too. She is fanastic, real and passionate about what she does.

How to end the obsession of your physique and food

Share the video with your girlfriends that would love this.

Jill teaches women how to create a healthy lifestyle that’s stress-and shame-free. She is a business and fitness coach.

We have so much in common with Jill. Our stories are similar yet a little bit different as she did fitness competitions as we didn’t but we all had an obsession with getting lean and eating clean all the time.

She was always looking for the “next” thing and we were like that for years. We love how she says, “The goal is not perfection.” We couldn’t agree more. We are all about embracing imperfections and being purely us.

Jill likes to keep her diet and fitness easy because she has other things to do and can’t afford the mental energy to keep focusing on food and diet. Amen to that. Right? You know we are all about doing less to live more.

I don’t usually leave negative comments, but I think this is worth bringing up. The title of this post is: “How to trust yourself around food and break the obsession of looking lean to feel worthy”. Focusing on the second part of that title – break the obsession of looking lean to feel worthy, I’d like to say that putting a picture of a woman who has a gorgeous physique, i.e. who is lean, does not induce self-acceptance. I understand that this woman is the woman you are talking with in your video, but it’s like hearing it’s o.k. to go make-up-less from a fresh-faced, airbrushed, neutral make-up-wearing pre-teen…I appreciate all you’re doing for women and the body confidence you try to project. But it’s little things like these that play to our subconscious. I hope you don’t take this the wrong way. I do love you ladies and all you do.

Thanks for the comment but to be honest we are a bit confused on what you are saying. Are we understanding it right – you are saying because she has a pretty physique she can’t have body acceptance? Are you saying that you can’t be lean and still love yourself and have body acceptance? Because our message is that all body types are worthy of love and acceptance. It’s more of the mindset that you FEEL you have to be lean to be considered worthy and that you go to extremes to get there and not enjoying the process.

you are misunderstanding me.
I am saying you are sending mixed message.
By putting a picture of someone lean but telling people not to be obsessed with LOOKING lean, you are sending a mixed message.

I agree that every body is worth.

But my comment is still worth noting.

And…I still love you gals. Hope you’re not mad <3

Thanks for responding back, we aren’t mad, we love ya too! We don’t mean to send mixed messages. This is a very sticky topic and has lots of layers. We will work on some follow up post to hopefully help with the message. Because we feel even if you are “lean” and have nice pictures you can still love and accept your body. As not all lean people are obsessed, they just have a lean body. Does that make sense? It’s more of the obsession with body image and working out like crazy that it takes over your life that we want to shed more light on. You can still want to look good (every one does to a point and we all have different meanings for what looks good) but when people go overboard with exercise and dieting that’s when we feel there’s a deeper issue going on. At least that is what it was for us. We hope this makes sense.
