When you don’t recognize the woman staring back at you in the mirror, it doesn’t matter how spiritual you feel on the inside. It’s hard to feel congruent.
So many of the conversations I’ve had with women over the years echo the same theme…
“I just want to be comfortable in my skin! I want my outsides to match my insides.”
I remember one conversation in particular with a coach named Diane.
Diane knew being comfortable in her skin wasn’t all about weight, but even as we spoke, she admitted how hard it was to be present on our call with her size-too-small pants cutting into her stomach, bringing up all her guilt, frustration and shame.
“I don’t get it! I KNOW what to do! Why is this still happening!”
Diane, like so many smart, high achieving women, had tons of nutrition knowledge and had tried the diets, detoxes and eating plans, but that didn’t stop the binge, obsession, anxiety cycle from stealing her peace.
Diane was getting stuck in the same way I’ve seen countless women who struggle with weight loss getting stuck:
Trying to fix a problem they don’t fully understand with an incomplete solution and applying strategies that are actually sabotaging their efforts.
Which is why, I agreed, when asked, to speak into this and what to do instead on the upcoming Permanent Weight Loss Summit my friend Laura Frontiero is hosting.
I’m excited to share a perspective that is often missing from this conversation of weight loss and food addiction – as well as the proven tools to have real freedom and permanent weight loss without obsessing, counting, tracking, depriving or controlling…
So women worldwide can be free of the shame, guilt and self-doubt that comes from the vicious cycle so many of us find ourselves in.
If that’s of interest to you… or you want to learn more about how to keep weight off without dieting or obsessing…
I look forward to seeing you there,
p.s. I got a gleeful email from Diane the other day to tell me that after applying the very strategies I’m going to reveal in the Permanent Weight Loss Summit, the pair of pants she met me in were now falling off her!
