What you can gain by getting off the diet wheel.

We’ve all seen the Special K adds “What will you gain when you lose?” (a topic for a future post…); however, this image throws it back in Special K’s face (*huzzah*) and asks a much more important question:

- Self-acceptance: realizing I am more than my weight, more than my body shape or size, more than what’s on my plate, and more than a number.
- Peace of mind: no longer beating myself up over what I have or haven’t eaten.
- Brownies. And nachos, and chocolate chip cookies, and all my favourite foods.
- Time: no longer wasting time tracking calories, fat, carbs…
