About six weeks after the start of the new year is when people start abandoning their New Year’s Resolutions—if they haven’t already.
Many people will blame busy-ness or laziness, but there’s one reason that is often overlooked: They sabotaged themselves when they started to see results.
“What? Why would I do that? My whole goal is to drop this extra weight!”
To the everyday person, they might think sabotaging one’s self when they are making progress makes no sense, but to an experienced coach like me, the reason is super clear: Somewhere inside of their mind, the person has a much stronger need to keep the weight on than to lose it.
If you started seeing results (on the scale, looser clothes, receiving compliments from others) and you’ve noticed yourself engaging in self-sabotaging behaviors such as overeating, sneak-eating, binging, skipping workouts, drinking extra glasses of wine or soda, etc., maybe it’s time to try a new approach.
Doing the inner work to understand WHY you are carrying the excess weight in the first place can eventually help you stop sabotaging yourself and stick to your healthy habits so that you can enjoy the results you create with your efforts long-term.
It’s okay to ask for help.
I did. I would have never released the 40 extra pounds I was carrying, and I would have never developed the peaceful relationship I have with food today if it weren’t for working with a coach.
Let me be your coach.
Let me help you make the necessary shifts in mindset required for permanent change.
