Wanna Lose Weight? Part 2

This is Part 2 of 2. Part 1 can be accessed here

Do you want to lose weight? 

If so, you are not alone. I was there for many years along with millions of other women just like you.  

The truth is 91% of women are unhappy about their body and seek weight loss as a solution. 

First, let’s level up on one fundamental point: No one wakes up one morning wanting to be fat, carry extra weight or not be able to lose weight. 

It’s basic human need to be accepted by our tribe and peers, therefore to be “normal”. 

All we want to be “normal”, we want to be confident in our body and image.  We are ready to do, what needs to get done to feel “normal” in our body 

For most of us in this community, this desire to be “normal weight” has gone one of two ways: we did lose weight at some point but it didn’t “stick” OR we haven’t yet attempted to lose weight because we are so afraid of failure and change.  

Why is it that we can’t do what we deeply desire?

That’s what we will cover in this 2part podcast series: episode 173-175. 

In this episode I discuss

  • What you need to consider in your desire to lose weight
  • Why do we want to lose weight
  • Does Thinness equals Happiness? 
  • How I changed my relationship to food from overeating, binging and emotional eating to food freedom

Last episode I talked about a very common tendency for women in our community… letting your past define you. Do you let this happen to you, too? Do you let your past failure define your today? Perhaps you think you are limited in your future possibilities because of your past failure?

The truth is… You are not the choices you’ve made. You are not the child you once were. No, you are not your failed marriage. You are not the setbacks of yesterday. Neither you are the bad things that have happened to you.

You can be that woman that wakes up tomorrow morning and that say I’m not doing this anymore… Curious? You don’t wanna miss this episode! Click here!
