Weight loss mindset
I can’t lose weight because_________________!
I’ve tried everything and nothing works!
I must be doing it wrong!
A few of you this week have asked me what you (specifically you) need to do to lose weight because you’ve tried everything and nothing’s working.
You’re frustrated and wishing things were different and you’re looking for the answers.
You’re looking for the one thing that’s going to make the difference for you.
And I hear you. I really do.
It’s what I did for 25 years.
And I want you to know that I don’t have the answer.
I don’t have a magic formula and nor does anyone else.
The only person that has the magic formula is you.
What I want to tell you (and you may not appreciate this) is that the answer lies within you.
It’s not our ‘there’ waiting to be found.
The diet industry has been lying to you!
That’s the bad news.
The good news is that every single one of you...
Did you know that any feeling is available to you at any time?
You get to use feelings as fuel to create whatever it is you want in life.
For example, many of my clients want to feel motivated to lose weight.
Most of us haven’t been taught that we can generate feelings on purpose.
We spend time wishing we felt motivated, or inspired or passionate and we wait for those feelings to appear.
We think we must wait for something to happen to create those feelings for us.
When it comes to weight, we sometimes want the pain of being overweight, whether emotional or physical, to get so bad that we are motivated to do something about it.
And whilst we are waiting, we feel worse, we get more disappointed, and the feeling of disappointment drives us to eat for comfort!
So, imagine how valuable the skill of generating feelings on purpose would be for you.
I often say that the benefits of weight coaching with me far exceed losing weight and changing your relationship with food for life.
