What's Normal For You?
Do you normally spend a lot of time and energy thinking about the food you eat and how much you weigh? Are you tired of allowing what you weigh to dictate how you feel about yourself? Tired of feeling judged because of your weight? Tired of the constant cycle of shame around the struggle with your weight?
I hear you and I understand exactly how you feel.
At my heaviest, I weighed 330 lbs. I was on a diet of one sort or another from the age of 8 until my early 40's. That's a lot of diets and a lot of years of feeling like there was something wrong with me, like I wasn’t good enough because I was overweight, obese and then morbidly obese.
No wonder I never felt like I was "normal." So many well-intentioned friends, family and "experts" tried to help by encouraging me to try the latest diet or silver bullet solution. Problem is, no diet, silver bullet or well-intentioned person is going to understand the emotional pain and shame that comes with living in an obese body. I remember the humiliation of having to ask for a seat-belt extender on a plane.
It wasn't until 2006, when my brother was diagnosed with cancer, that I understood that I was using food to cope with life. Once he was healthy and cancer free, I focused on changing my life. It was a long road but I lost more than half my weight. No diets. No pills. No gastric bypass surgery.
How did I do it? I educated myself and gradually shifted my habits and choices from unhealthy to healthy ones (most of the time!) and have kept the weight off, give or take 10 lbs, for over a decade now.
What you eat, when you eat it and how you move your body is the science behind weight loss, and if you’ve struggled with your weight for any amount of time, you probably know as much as I do about how to lose those unwanted pounds ... but how do you keep it off? How do you manage your weight while navigating all of the other things you want to do and achieve in life?
The secret lies between our ears: our mindset; our thinking; our choices; our habits. It's about how we are choosing to cope with the ups and downs of life.
I’ll share my weight loss journey and some tips & tricks along the way but for now, I want you to know that it is possible for you too.
