Is this the conversation about weight loss going on in the background of your mind?
“I’m afraid I’ll fail on another diet or plan.”
“I fell like a failure because I can’t lose weight.”
“I’ve failed at every diet before, why would this work?”
“I’ve tried everything, why would it work this time?”
HOW DOES IT FEEL TO SAY THOSE THINGS TO YOURSELF?
TAKE A MOMENT……
Sad, frustrated, ashamed? Something else?
NOW, LET’S LOOK AT THE FACTS:
How much weight did you lose?
What did you learn about yourself?
Was it healthy?
What foods did you like?
What parts of the diet or plan were sustainable?
What types of exercise felt great?
HOW DOES IT FEEL NOW TO LOOK AT IT IN A FACTUAL WAY?
Calm, in control, curious? Something else?

Food: What foods feel amazing in your body?
Activity: What’s a way you love to move your body?
