Episode #97 - Holiday Eating & Lessons Learned

mindset Aug 19, 2022

Join me as I get personal on this episode about how I ate on holiday, how much weight I gained, how I lost it again and what I learned about my relationship with food, myself and my life.

One of the fundamental principles of the ‘My One Life’ approach to weight loss is based on a continually learning about your relationship with food and yourself so that you can enjoy figuring out what works for you and what may work better.

I told members of The Academy that I wanted to really enjoy my holiday, eat intentionally, enjoy the food and not gain weight. I ate in a way that I wanted to eat at least 80% of the time, which is a good outcome. We’re not striving for perfection here – just a balanced way of being. And I gained 5 lbs and they weight was lost within a week of getting back.

Listen in as I share what worked for me, what didn’t work so well, what I learned and how the changes I might make to my holiday eating next time I am away.
