Do you keep doing the same things and expecting a different result?
Habits are hard set. Do you find that despite your best effort, you tend to slowly revert back to your old unconscious ways of doing things before you even realize it? This especially applies to yo-yo “dieting” and trying to go on yet another restrictive plan in the hopes of losing the same 10+ pounds you chase around year after year.
Many women revert back to the old formula of calorie restriction and long bouts of cardio exercise for quick weight loss, only to gain it all back plus more. This is a recipe for feeling confused, drained and self-defeated.
It’s complicated . . .
It’s not as simple as calories in – calories out + running like a hamster on the treadmill = losing weight and feeling good. Maybe for a chosen few. . . BUT perimenopause, menopause, chronic busyness, lack of exercise and always putting yourself last also contribute to unwanted weight gain.
Not to mention you may now be up against high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sluggish thyroid, insulin resistance and increasing belly fat.
There is a ton of information floating around on the internet and from well-meaning friends about diet, nutrition and lifestyle. A lot of this information is wrong, doesn’t apply to your individual needs, or just reminds you of what you should be doing but can’t for some reason.
It doesn’t have to be complicated . .
Instead of searching for yet more information or another magical diet, have you stopped to ask yourself what it is that you really want and need in your life? Nutrition is about nurturing . . . not math. Food that nourishes your body and supports hormonal balance is the key to looking and feeling good. Food and lifestyle are medicine. Weight loss is a side effect.
This requires a BIG shift in consciousness. What is it that you really want? Write a story, daydream, make a list, the key here is to have a vision of yourself being who it is you truly want to be, living the life you want to live and believing that you can have it!
