I’m constantly hearing about the newest and greatest “diet”. Weight Watchers, Volumetric, The Dash, Mediterranean, Paleo, Keto…..yikes!
In all the years that I have been in the health and fitness field, I have seen so many women go on a diet, deprive themselves and lose weight, only to put it right back on because they could not continue their life on their “diet.”
If you want to lose weight and keep it off, you must do something vastly different from dieting.
You need to learn new skills. Skills that will help you make cravings go away. Skills that will help you deal with trigger eating situations and skills that will help you conquer every excuse and feeling that causes you to overeat.
Learning these skills will teach you how to make your struggles work in your favor. And it is challenging work. It is certainly harder than being on a diet. Because the fear associated with change runs deep. So deep, that many would rather stay stuck and continue to avoid looking at themselves in the mirror.
If you really want to change, the most important thing you can do to ensure your success is to work with a mentor or coach. One who will not only be supportive but is also skilled at asking you the tough questions that will be your catalyst to change.
Someone who will help you push through the hard part of becoming consciously aware of how awful you feel about yourself and the feelings associated with that.
One who will give you an action plan to turn those awful feelings around, so they work for you. A plan that will build your confidence, so you know how to make every feeling, craving and excuse work to your advantage.
When you try to go it alone or even in a group you stay in isolation mode, where fear and doubt easily take hold. You end up trying diet after diet and eventually just give up.
You are worth so much more. You only have one body, why not learn how to love it?
