The first time I ever remember judging my body I was four years old.
My mom was attempting to keep me warm on a crisp summer night in the alluring Rocky Mountains of Alberta. It was beautiful and I rode my horse on meandering trails, and under splendid trees. As she informed me that I would be putting on the “too puffy” sweater, I lost it. There was tears bigger than me streaming down my sweet little face as I opened to my mouth to say I can’t wear that, it will make me look fat….
WHY on God’s green earth would a four year old have the point of view that wearing a sweater would make her look fat, well it always confused the shit out of me and I always wondered what the hell was wrong with me. It was as if that loop was in my head even before I knew what the hell being “fat” really was, just a judgment!
As I grew, so did the judgment I had of my body. Every time I opened a gift and it was clothes I cringed inside. Did they know that my body was huge compared to girls sizes in every single store, we ever walked into when we went back to school shopping?
As a 32 year old this ugly destructive thing we call judgment was really rearing it’s head, and as I was crying and on my knees wondering what it was going to take to change any of this crap that kept looping over and over and over and over and over and over again in my brain. On Facebook one evening shortly after the demand I had made, actually looking for the “miracle” product to change my body, I came across something called the No Judgment Diet.
What the hell is a No Judgment Diet...?
I immediately started seeking more!
I checked out this program and this page and then as many videos as I could find on facebook that Katherine McIntosh had posted and then I signed up for a couple programs that Katherine offered, No Judgment Party and A Course of Possibilities and there was no going back. It was shifting, the judgment that I had of myself was way less. I wondered what it would take for me to be at one of her 3-day No Judgment Diet classes, I had to know more about Katherine and the tools she was sharing. When Katherine spoke on any platform I always wondered if she was talking directly to me and I had never even met this phenomenal woman!
There wasn’t an event that I didn’t attend that I didn’t judge what I was going to wear, how it would look on my body or what other people would think. I would always go to the space that the jeans I had on for that event looked way better last year when I attended that same event. There was so much time and energy put into judging me….And I had no idea how to change it, or choose something different! Until Katherine and the No Judgment Diet!
This November was a game changer!
I attended a 3 day No Judgment Diet with Katherine, and it was amazing!
Everything was different after leaving that class! I carried my body completely different, I would get dressed and would actually stand in front of the mirror and NOT JUDGE me. There was so much space in my world, I wasn’t even sure what to do with it all!
Before attending the 3 day event, I had scheduled a photographer. I love having pictures in my Christmas cards. But this would send me into a spiral of judgment, self loathing and upset. One more year of pictures where my body was way bigger than I desired it to be, OMG what was I going to wear that would hide my body. And every year before I would pick a picture to send out that only showed my face or was at a flattering angle that hid the size I actually was. So much time wasted on something that wasn’t ever going to create the life and living I truly desired.
Yesterday, was the appointment with the photographer, and things were so different. I didn’t freak about what I was going to wear, I just let my body choose what was going to work for it, I didn’t stand in front of the mirror looking at my jeans and the judge the muffin top that was there. As we walked out the door, I was actually excited and wondered how much fun we were going to have instead of thinking over and over again how fat I was going to look in pictures! It was amazing and so different from what I have ever chosen in the past! I am actually looking forward to what I can create in my life and what else is actually possible instead of JUDGING absolutely everything in my life and what my body should look like and that it doesn’t look like.
Consider this your invitation...
Katherine and the 3 day No Judgment Diet class has changed everything in my life!
I can walk by a mirror and be grateful for my body and not go down the rabbit hole of self loathing. If you have ever had any type of loop in your head that you can NOT seem to get out of or choose beyond it, get to a class with Katherine! I’m telling you from one self loathing woman to another, you can choose something different. And how I did that was with the assistance of Katherine and her creation called the No Judgment Diet!
You have been invited to choosing you and the life you have always desired...
