I never thought it would be possible to lose my desire to overeat comforting food. I really like comfort food, especially the extra sugary kind. It’s an easy way to make me feel better. I just didn’t realize at the time that I was making myself feel the same effects of doing cocaine and it was keeping me detached from achieving long term results with my weight loss. The truth is it never made me feel better. If anything it made me feel worse. Especially when I would see the number on the scale creep up afterwards.
Overeating, mindless eating, emotional eating were all my go-to solution to help quiet whatever nagging thought was going on in my head.
It seems harmless. It’s just a little treat, right? But when that treat turns into obsessing over it, then Houston we have a problem! It’s one thing for someone in control of their eating to just have a piece of cake and be done with it, but when you start scouring the fridge or going back again and again for another piece then you have to stop and realize that you’re eating behavior is an indication that something isn’t right. And that is how I lived my life for years. Constantly losing and regaining weight because of a pesky little thing called emotional overeating.
With each failed attempt at keeping the weight off, I’d feel like crap when I had to start over again. I was stuck in a cycle, and I started to doubt I would ever figure this out.
You don’t need to be stuck anymore, because somehow you made your way here. When I was searching for my answers I couldn’t find anyone who was able to tackle my specific problem. They just wanted to share another dieting tactic or talk about will power without getting to the root of why I was yo-yo dieting to begin with. This is why I became a Life Coach specializing in mindset management for permanent weight loss.
So when I tell you I know exactly what you’re going through…I know exactly what you’re going through! And I know how painful it can be to feel like there isn’t a solution. But I promise you there is. I figured out the answer, and it has very little to do with which nutritional theory you follow (vegan, paleo, keto, etc) and everything to do with how you think.
I want you to get your power back too.
Once I understood more about the power of our thoughts and how they form our beliefs and how our beliefs impact our actions it all began to make sense. When I started to learn how to allow my urges to just be there until they dissipated I realized I didn’t need to act on them or try so hard to resist them (only to create a greater urge). All these years, I convinced myself that I must not have enough will power or discipline to stick to a plan long term. Turns out that my brain was causing the problem and yet would also become the solution. If you want to change how your eating, or approaching your weight loss journey you first have to radically change your thinking.
You want to now the best part? You can stop beating yourself up and get on with your life as immediately as today. It takes only ONE THOUGHT to completely change your life and the direction it’s going. ONE THOUGHT! That’s it! You are wasting so much precious time on your weight loss battles right now. My mission is to help you get freed from that so you can put that energy towards something so much more productive in your life!
You don’t need to be comforted by food. The best version of yourself isn’t waiting at the end of your fork. She’s waiting for you to find her with the way you think about yourself!!
