How much of what you think about yourself do you believe?
I hear a lot of clients tell me about their struggles and how they used to be so happy when they exercises, or lost themselves in a hobby and how they have lost their way due to the internal negative natter and the beliefs they have about themselves. I like to remind them that a thought cannot be seen, touch, tasted or smelt. That a thought has no texture, flavour or scent. Its therefore not factual or even real. If these thoughts are not serving you well, the answer your looking for is to let it go and change what you believe about yourself to a positive belief that will serve you well and allow you to remove the emotional blocks that are holding you back from what you want in life.
I promised never to diet again and I have never felt as free as I do now. I have put on weight, this is the best thing that has happened to me. I now know how my body looks and how its responds to the lifestyle that brings me joy. I have a body that works for me and allows me to carry out what I love everyday.
I exercise to release the happy hormones now and not through punishment for eating something that wasn’t on my meal planner. I have an idea about what food I want to eat in a day. In fact when I took a step back I realised that I actually crave healthy food over processed food. Because these natural foods are already in there own packaging. Banana is already in a wrapper that is biodegradable, apples, oranges to name a few. Vegetables also are wrapped up and all you need to do is give them a quick wash! Hey presto! Fast Food!!! Oh and saving the planet from less waste. Winner!
I will never fall victim to a quick fix again. It’s taken me until my 39th year to get that light bulb moment. I truly hope it doesn’t take you as long.
As humans we want accountability, we crave connection and someone we can check in with. You can have this, please don’t go for a quick fix like a tea tox or a laxative or diet pill weight loss scam. This will only make you feel even more shame when you have a ‘oh shit i just smashed a packed of biscuits binge’.
Please talk to someone. If not me, a friend that you know will listen.
Enjoy relaxing and being more present. Let go of your addiction to shame.Posted on: February 3, 2019, by : Sindy Matthews
