Chrissy Metz: I don’t have to beat myself up if I have XYZ food


I’ve listened to the clip of Chrissy Metz speaking about Alison Brie at the Golden Globes multiple times, and can’t decide what I think said. Sometimes, I hear “bae–” and sometimes I hear “bi–.” I’m not sure why she would tell other people that she thinks Alison is a “bitch” even if her mic were off, but who knows.

Chrissy is on the cover of the January/February issue of Good Housekeeping. In her interview, she shared some of the ways that she’s trying to be more mindful and take care of herself as she works toward her 2020 goals: she meditates daily, she’s found therapy useful, and she’s very deliberate and thoughtful about what she posts on social media. Here are some of the highlights from her interview:

On nurturing her newfound confidence:
“I don’t want to compromise a sound or a note or a word. I want it to be on my terms, which is new for me.”

On how therapy has helped her cope with her past: “We have to talk about our feelings, and I physically have been stuffing them all my life, so to have someone listen to me, without judgment … It was like, ‘Oh, OK, this is different.’”

“My upbringing was very different and often tumultuous, but all those things shaped me to be who I am. I realized those things served me in what I wanted to do, in being vulnerable and having the ability to be very emotional … [I] think [to myself], ‘There’s a reason I went through all these things: to become the person I am and to accept myself through it all.’”

On not losing her spirit when trying to be healthier: “I’ve battled weight issues, but I realize that I don’t have to beat myself up if I have XYZ food. Instead, I change my perspective and think, ‘What is it that I’m angry about?’ since we tend to want crunchy foods when we’re angry or ice cream when we soothe ourselves. All these things I’m just trying to be cognizant of.”

On blocking out the haters: “Those people [the haters] are in the cheap seats; they’re not in the ring with the blood, sweat and tears, and they have no idea what my daily life is like. Let me know when you’ve walked in my shoes, but oh, you’re in the cheap seats. That, to me, is how I sort of reconcile whatever you want to say. It’s absolutely your opinion and your perspective, but it’s not the truth.”

On using social media more mindfully: “Every single time I post something [I think]: ‘What is my intention? Am I seeking validation? Do I want somebody to think I look pretty because I’m feeling bad about myself today?’ I always start with that. Sometimes people come to my page to look for positive encouragement … but the only thing I can do is be myself, and hopefully that inspires people.”
