I was coaching a client this last week on how and why she gained 2 lbs back.
She said that her neighbor dropped off a large zucchini.
She made chocolate chip zucchini bread from the gift.
And ate some.
I asked her why.
She said she didn't want it to go to waste... Then she said there are hungry children all over the world and she thought if she didn't eat it she would be ungrateful.
Do you do this too?
I thought this way for YEARS!
I grew up believing there was a Clean Plate Club...
Where I was encouraged, by my well-meaning mom, to eat all the food on my plate.
If I left a few bites, I watched my mom finish them off before rinsing the plates to put in the dishwasher.
It's so fascinating what we think of as WASTE. We think:
"If I don't eat this, it will go to waste."
"If I don't eat this, I'm ungrateful for what I have."
What if both of these thoughts are, not only not true, but sabotaging your goals and harmful...
It's true. You can lose weight...
Lose the weight that comes from feeling overwhelmed, worried, anxious...
Lose the weight of feeling stressed out in their relationships.
Lose the weight that comes from crushing financial situations.
Lose the weight of feeling so busy with a chronically overbooked calendar.
Lose the weight that comes from their inability to follow through.
Lose the weight of feeling out-of-control with anger, frustration, or depression.
Lose the weight of feeling like you're a slave to your food cravings.
Lose the weight of not showing up the way you'd like to in your life.
Lose the weight of anxiety and sleepless nights.
Lose the weight of feeling like they have no control over their health because their families aren't supportive of the changes they'd like to make...
You can lose weight and not feel any lighter if...
