It sounds simple enough...but here's the problem:
You're up against multi-billion dollar beauty, diet, fitness, and weight loss industries that concoct all sorts of rules, counting, measuring, and guidelines...
...and they promise that if you follow their plan exactly, you'll lose weight fast which is the answer to loving your life!
They're smart. They know you hate the extra weight
and you wanted it gone yesterday.
But the faster you lose it in a way that's vastly different
from how you normally live...the faster you put it back on.
(Plus a little extra because now you're in "F**K IT mode".)
Why bother losing weight if you'll just end up gaining it back?
YOU DON'T QUIT BECAUSE YOU LACK WILLPOWER...
You quit because while they're busy talking about points and bullshit food rules...
You're trying to navigate Thursday night happy hour with the coworkers,
Friday night pizza with the fam, and a weekend of doing the finances, running errands, and going to your kid's friend's birthday parties (hello chips and cake).
There "solution" is too far-fetched from the lifestyle you're already living.
It's impossible to sustain even with copious amounts of willpower.
YOU ALSO DON'T QUIT BECAUSE YOU LACK SELF DISCIPLINE...
You quit because no one is offering real solutions to your self-sabotaging behaviors, or teaching real tools that REMOVE THE BLOCKS that keep coming up for you so you can expand your capacity to FEEL YOUR FEELINGS, instead of using food, booze, or shopping to numb them out.
Here's how it really works:
You hold on to extra weight because the oldest part of your nervous system that runs below your conscious awareness believes it's keeping you safe by keeping your body exactly where it's at today.
And since this part of your nervous system is responsible for 80% or your behavior... it really doesn't matter how badly you want it.
You actually have to heal and teach this unconscious part of your nervous system that it's safe for you to release the weight. It's safe for you to live in a body you love that's healthy and thriving.
The way you do that (if you want to lose the weight, never gain it back, and actually like your body), it's going to take 2 things:
1. Create new habits that aren't so far fetched
from the life you're already living.
You should feel like you can keep at it even after you've lost the weight.
2. Remove the Unconscious Blocks that keep you stuck
in old self-sabotaging patterns.
This overlooked yet crucial part teaches your nervous system it's safe to lose weight, and you're safe to have the body and life you so deeply desire.
YOU CAN NOT BYPASS THIS PROCES.
THE ONLY WAY OUT IS THROUGH.
