I'm growing out of this phase. I used to work out A LOT and then really strictly monitor my diet in order to alleviate the feeling. But there's more to it than just being really strict on my diet all the time now.

I'm trying to find a balance between peace with myself and peace with working out and eating right. So an overall inner peace. I backed off on the guilt- and fear-driven training and dieting, and enjoyed my own habits for a few months, accepting the fact that I'm actually human like anyone else. And my own bodyweight, workout and eating habits naturally are not as bad as I thought. Also, I look pretty good and I accept my visual flaws.

Once I can 100% accept myself the way I am (after just settling into my current looks and habits) then I will move forward on another appearance goal. But working on that self-acceptance along the way is a real challenge for me.
