I have so many clients who come to me so tired and spent from obsessing about food and their weight.
They feel like no matter what, they have to keep this rigid plan and fear that any little indulgence will undo all of the work they have done.
It’s such a huge drain on them mentally and emotionally
This is why flexibility is such an important goal and mindset to achieve and my final Body Freedom principle.
For long term success, you want to reach the point of Flexibility where you don't feel so rigid and restricted, otherwise you can never truly achieve freedom in your body.
This is the final step you need in order to move from weight loss fatigue, feeling stuck in your body, and having sabotaging behaviors with food,
To Body Freedom…
where you're comfortable in your body,
you are in control of your body and food,
you enjoy eating well and it becomes second nature.
What does this mean to you? Yes, seeing numbers go down on the scale is great but the bigger picture is also about how you feel in your own body and how much mental effort it takes to maintain that lost weight. It's not just about weight loss. It's about feeling good and free inside your body and loving yourself inside and out.
To really have body freedom you need to have a solid plan that’s right for YOU. It’s totally understandable, there is A LOT of information on how to lose weight. And it can be overwhelming and get very confusing. This is where having clarity and structure through a Game Plan will help eliminate the confusion.
When your reason for wanting to get healthier and lose weight resonates with the things that are most important to you it will make it so much easier to stick to your plan so you can reach your goals. Your "why" doesn’t just mean an impulsive urge to lose weight. To achieve true sustainable motivation you need a deeper, intrinsic reason.
When you create sustainable habits you have a healthy mindset and it starts to become something automatic you don’t have to struggle to think about. It becomes a way of BEING. It's not just about hitting a number on the scale, it's about truly being liberated from the whole experience of having to deal with weight loss again.
Healthy living is all about BALANCE!! It’s about knowing you can indulge, enjoy the moments in your life, have a glass of wine…and it won’t be a detrimental setback in your overall healthy lifestyle. You need to have a game plan and mindset in place so you’re ready and know what your strategies are for course correction. So it doesn’t have to be a huge issue when you’ve gained a little bit of weight or indulged a little.
