If you are already doubting your ability to deal with the things that get you off track, then no matter what other goals you are setting for yourself (start a new healthy eating plan, join the gym, stop eating carbs after X o’clock) I encourage you to ALSO explore joining me in the Love Your Way to Weight Loss programme so I can support you using a food psychology approach.
The Love Your Way to Weight Loss programme supports you to focus on the reasons ‘why’ you are eating, rather than concentrating on the ‘what’ and ‘how much’ of your food choices.
If you’ve struggled to adopt the healthy way of life you’re longing for so far, it’s likely you just need some extra support.
To change certain habits, you simply need to understand why the habit began (the purpose it served) and how it can be altered for good. The ‘Love Your Way to Weight Loss with Dr Jen’ programme guides you with simple, step-by-step processes to support you to understand why you have developed your food-related habits AND what to do to change these for long-term transformation.
I want to share a profound truth with you right now:
If you’ve struggled with your eating and weight up until now, there is nothing wrong with you.
The truth is, if ‘eat less, move more’ approaches were going to work for you, they likely would have already.
Many people struggle to manage their weight (often for years) simply because they are using the wrong ‘tools’ to fix the problem. It’s a bit like trying to drill a hole using a hammer!
I hope you can see that you’re not a ‘failure’ (or whatever other names you’ve been calling yourself). You simply need some extra support to develop the skills to deal with the obstacles you’ve identified.
The one powerful step I encourage you to take now you’ve discovered this, is simple.
It’s to make a commitment to yourself to learn the skills you’ve identified are missing, so you can immediately know how to get the result you really want.
Imagine the Future You in 2019, who knows exactly how to resist tempting food, how to handle a bad day, how to stop evening grazing, how to comfort and reward yourself without food, how to stop yo-yo dieting (or fill in your desire of choice).
This Future You has put food in its rightful place – as a pleasure to be enjoyed because you now have the skills to eat when your body is hungry and stop when you’re full. You've also got a whole load of extra 'head-space' available now you're not wasting it thinking about food.
If that feels impossible to you right now, please be reassured. Just like you needed help and guidance to drive a car, speak a new language or learn any other new skill – you likely need some help to develop new skills so you only really think about eating when you are physically hungry (like those so-called ‘normal’ eaters you know and love/hate!)
It’s not your fault if you can’t do this yet. In our food abundant environments, it may sound easier said than done, but the great news is, it’s a learnable skill, and I’d love to support you.
You don’t need to struggle on your own.
