If you’re reading this chances are you have tried multiple ways to lose weight:
Detoxes, cleanses, pills, and maybe even wraps
Along with these diets:
… You’ve also probably experienced losing some weight only to have it come back once the “diet is over”
…You may have seen some progress then decided that “you earned some treats” and it doesn’t stop because you keep eating all the foods that were NOT allowed on your diet and couldn’t eat before
… You may have gotten to your goal weight and once you did, you didn’t know what to focus on because you ‘made it’ and the old habits came rushing back… and so did the weight
… You may feel overwhelmed with the amount of stress at work and the fact you find it hard to make time for yourself to do the things you value and that are important to you
… You may find yourself being stuck in the trap of saying “YES” to people and obligations that you really don’t want to be involved in leaving you feeling burnt out and exhausted.
… You may find yourself trying to be ‘perfect’ in order to gain the approval and validations of others to fulfill your feelings of self-worth and value in the world
… You may have found yourself being “good” all week but that one slip up on Friday at the office or after a long day of work made the wheels come off the wagon and because since you already messed up, you might as well keep going….
…You tell yourself that you’re going to “start fresh” next week and keep eating what you said you wouldn’t over the weekend
But next week has come and gone many times now… and if you had to be honest with yourself all the hard work, effort and trying to make it work, hasn’t worked
You may find yourself tired of battling food and your body, trying to make a change that’s such a struggle and your goal feels forever away.
If this resonates with you, you’re not alone.
In fact many people struggle with EXACTLY the same set of problems and challenges I listed above.
And have also tried to lose the weight over and over again
By trying to solve the “diet problem”
By trying to control and restrict food
By trying to be ‘perfect’
By trying to live up the expectations and desires of others rather than living in alignment with what they WANT for themselves and WHO they want to be.
But what most people also don’t realize is that all this battling, all this fighting all this trying to force and create change has come down to the world view and perspective they have about what the best way to do it is.
And unfortunately, the traditional weight loss approach you see on TV, in magazines, in Facebook groups really isn’t the best way to go about it (at least in my experience).
If what you’re doing is supposed to work…
It may be time to ask yourself…
“Why isn’t it?”
“Why is it that no matter how much willpower, discipline and motivation I try and use, I still find myself hating the way I look, not seeing the change I want to see and continue to feel frustrated overwhelmed and defeated?”
“Why is it that other people can lose weight and I can’t?!”
“What is REALLY going on here?”
Why is that you seem to be doing EVERYTHING right and yet it’s still not working?
If this approach hasn’t worked after all these attempts
…why are you so committed to repeating it over and over again when you just plain feel MISERABLE and can’t wait for it to end?
You see, most people don’t have a “diet problem” they have other challenges, beliefs and perspectives that manifest themselves as a diet problem and until those are addressed
…Nothing seems to work.
Because you also are probably telling yourself
“I know what to do but can’t seem to do it”
and that creates even MORE frustration, negative self talk and feelings of inadequacy.
Which ultimately leads to more eating, more skipping workouts, more breaking the promises you make to yourself.
Which leads to a lack of self confidence, feeling self conscious about your body and a fear of showing up in the world for who you really are.
It sucks, I get it, but I also want you to know that
… you don’t have to continue to fight and control food
… you don’t have to keep wearing the same clothes over and over again that you don’t want to wear
… you don’t have to keep struggling with the shame around the number on the scale
… you don’t have to put other people above your own well being and the values that are most important to you
And you can finally break free from the prison you have found yourself in
And you can…
- Fit back into the clothes you have saved in the back of the closet
- Have more energy and time to do the things that are important to you
- Go out in public without fearing the judgment of what other people are thinking and saying about the way you look
And you can finally lose the weight and keep it off for GOOD.
