If you’re doing what you’ve always done (dieting), expecting that it’ll be different this time (you’ll keep the weight off and live happily ever after), but, despite all your efforts, you just keep getting the same old results (weight regain and more food and body obsession), you aren’t alone. In fact, you sound just like me (and many of my clients) before discovering that there are proven ways to ditch diets and still achieve and maintain a weight that is healthy for you.
Now, let me be VERY clear here. When I say “a weight that is healthy for you” I’m not referring to that ridiculous number on a scale you’ve been shooting for (ie. your high school weight, your weight on your wedding day after you dieted down to fit into your dress, some 3x/4x/5x your inches over 5ft calculation, Jennifer Aniston’s weight) or even some supposedly-official number your doctor pulled from an insurance chart. In fact, I’m not even talking about a number. I’m talking about the physical state at which you sleep and feel your best, have enough energy and drive to do all the things you want to do, and most importantly, a state your body will comfortably allow you to maintain without deprivation or food obsession. I know you are skeptical (I was too!) and if you’ve spent any time at all living in our weight-obsessed culture, it might take some time for you to come around to this way of thinking, but I am patient and you are worth it so stick around…browse the posts and articles on this site. Ask a question. Learn about the challenges and rewards of giving up dieting forever. Give it a try. After all, what do you have to lose, right?
