I mean, motivated how? Do you need to be motivated to break free from the diet binge cycle and make peace with food and your body above all else? Yes. Do you need the motivation and willpower to control food? No.
You need to be motivated by the idea of feeling at peace with food and your body and willing to show up for yourself with compassion as you learn this new way of living and relating to food. The process involves eating and listening and feeling your feelings. It involves a lot of learning, applying and embodying. It’s not a start/stop, pass/fail or on the wagon/off the wagon thing where you have to get motivated and pumped and muster willpower. It’s a gradual paradigm shift. So, “motivation” doesn’t quite fit the vibe here.
