So you are thinking that you need to fix your relationship with food. But you have extra weight that you have to get off.
And the idea of keeping that weight on your body for the rest of your life really feels unacceptable.
So you say, yes, I have to do something about this, but I have to get some weight off first.
As soon as I reach the weight that I want to be, then I will stay there by fixing my relationship with food. But I just can't do that right now at this weight.
So you go on a diet to get the weight off. And it's awesome at first and you are losing weight, but then you slip up.
You have a piece of birthday cake, and then since you blew it you eat everything "off your diet" for the rest of the night knowing you will go back to your diet in the morning.
And you do, you start fresh, but then at dinner, you have an extra serving and you blew it anyway so you have dessert...
After 2 weeks of "day 1" every morning you resolve to stick to your diet 100% but you find that your cravings for sugar are stronger than they ever have been. And when you crash you crash hard and you eat more than ever.
I coached a woman who came to me and said "Lydia I have spent a year on this diet, it has cost me $3,000 to go to support meetings, and I am 2 pounds heavier now"
With all the up and down and misery, she paid $3,000 to GAIN 2 pounds.
If you are concerned with losing weight, what if you just simply took out all the extra calories that you were eating BECAUSE you were trying to lose weight and just see what happens?
Eating normally, without weight loss expectations actually puts your body in a place where it can, maybe for the first time, release the extra weight...WITHOUT YOU TRYING TO LOSE IT. It feels like magic.
But to do it, you need to be aware of your thought patterns around food.
