Emotions all over the place? Yup … me too. Look…please listen to me on this…unless you are superwoman…this not the time to try to lose weight. Say what?
Yup…as your weight loss coach I’m begging you…please don’t focus on dieting right now.
Can you guess why? Because dieting causes stress and your body doesn’t need any more stress.
We are all experiencing a heightened level of stress. There’s no reason to add to that by berating yourself about what you are eating.
Now I’m not suggesting you indulge in eating packages of Cadbury eggs.
Here’s what I suggest. You give yourself as much external comfort as possible. Text a friend, go outside and take in a deep breath of fresh air. And if you feel sad or anxious, instead of eating, give yourself permission to feel that emotion. If you need to cry, cry. If you need to take a nap in the middle of the day because you feel exhausted from stress, go take a nap.
Just don’t wallow in your negative feelings because those negative feelings love to linger and stick to you like glue.
I get it…the stress of this pandemic gets to me too. So, let’s work together to get past this hurdle.
I’ll be holding a free week-long event April 13th-15th to see what we can do deflect lockdown weight gain.
You can find information on this event here. If you want to be a part of this, you can register for free. And please share the link with your friends.
I’m looking forward to your thoughts, questions and shared ideas as we work together to get over this hurdle.
