How to Never Blow Your Diet Again
Learn how to never blow your diet again! Instead of starting diets and then giving up, here is a new way to do it.
Imagine your life this way.
- You never blow your diet.
- You never worry about going to parties or special occasions.
- You eat real food and love it.
- You like who you see in the mirror.
- Mondays are never about having to start a diet again.
- You are peaceful about food, and you know you are the one in control.
It may sound like a fantasy at this point, but it is possible.
The first step is to realize that you’ve been caught up in diet mentality, perhaps for as long as you can remember.
This is how to never blow your diet again. Diet mentality never works for the long-term. Developing a new mindset means no more diets.
We women think about food and our bodies all the time.
How do women’s magazines sell? They always have some diet on the cover!
It’s our dream to lose weight and have a great body.
But after years of suffering, a lot of women just give up and accept that nothing is really going to work for them.
I know, that’s what I did.
Each decade, I got a little bigger. In my forties I stayed a size 14 for 10 years, except for a brief period where I dieted but then immediately began gaining the weight back.
Why I Quit Dieting After 50
By the age of 50, I was done dieting. I accepted my size 14 body. Fortunately, I didn’t give up on taking care of it. I ate real food and I exercised. I believed that I would never get thinner, but I still wanted to be healthy.
I believed then, and I still believe, that being thin doesn’t mean being healthy. They are two completely different things.
I believed that I could never get a better body or lose weight. I had totally given up hope.
Yet, in my early fifties, I discovered some new ways of thinking about eating that changed my life. I lost about 30 pounds and I had the cutest body of my life.
At that time, I didn’t have the mindset or all the tools I do now. I gained some back, but I never gained it all back; I was definitely on the right track.
For the last year and a half, I have had the mindset and tools to keep my weight in a range that I love. My weight doesn’t change by more than a pound or two. I wear a size eight and that has become my normal.
I don’t have to worry about it, diet, or obsess about food. I don’t have any crazy exercise program I follow. And I am never going to blow my diet again!
Why Diets Don’t Work for Women Over 50
The secret to never blowing a diet is simply to never diet again.
Dieting can definitely help you shed pounds.
Here’s where they go wrong though. When you are on a diet, you are always in danger of going off of the diet.
When you change how you eat, without changing your thoughts, then you never develop the mindset that allows you to eat with confidence, compassion, and love for yourself.
Before you ever try to lose weight, you first have to have compassion and love for yourself.
You have to understand why you are the size you are.
Diet mentality says it’s because you eat too much.
Diet mentality is an asshole. It actually keeps you miserable. It tells you that you have to suffer to lose weight. It tells you that you need to be punished for eating too much. It tells you that there is something wrong with you because you are a certain size or weight.
Diet mentality is not your friend. And you will rebel against it. Your body will rebel. Your brain will rebel.
How I Can Help You Lose Weight and Regain Your Life
I offer a six-month coaching program to help women lose weight. It’s six months because, one, of course I want you to get weight loss results.
More importantly, I want you to have success each and every day, that is not dependent on what the scales says.
It takes about six weeks for women to start to get, that so much of their food and weight drama is all taking place in their brains.
This isn’t something I can just tell you. Well I can, but you have to experience it yourself and get coached on what is going on in real time.
Women usually come to coaching feeling like shit. They hate how they look, and they hate that they let themselves get into this situation.
We have to deal with that first. You cannot EVER hate yourself into looking or feeling great.
It takes time to break through all the ingrained and poisonous thoughts you have. It takes time to develop new thoughts and patterns. It takes time for your body to trust you enough to shed weight.
And the absolute best way to do that is with a coach.
You see, we all have blind spots. We can’t see how we are thinking is affecting what we are doing. But this is the most important part of losing weight.
The other thing that is priceless, is a coach will not let you quit or fail on yourself.
You’ll want to quit. We all do. But in my program, there is no such thing as true failure. You might try something, and it might not work, but that’s just information.
A coach is with you, for you, and always on your side.
My clients tell me, that they hear my voice in their heads when they handle something differently that in the past would have thrown them off.
How Weight Loss Coaching Works
As I said, the first few weeks are adapting from a diet mentality to a way of eating that is compassionate and loving.
There is no one way of eating that is perfect for everyone. You have to experiment and discover what works best for you.
This time though, you won’t be alone!
Changes to your diet will be incremental. When your brain resists, I help you find the most strategic ways to work with it, so that you never feel deprived.
You will gain more confidence as you go along. You’ll learn to trust yourself in any eating situation. And you are going to lose weight.
Losing weight though, will just be the cherry on top. All the things you accomplish along the way are what is going to really change you.
- You’ll be eating real food that tastes great and fits your unique lifestyle.
- Food will not be an enemy or something to fear.
- You’ll understand how your body works and what works best for it.
- You’ll celebrate wins every week and you will understand EXACTLY what YOU did to make it happen.
- You won’t ever have to feel like you’ve “blown it” ever again.
Doesn’t that sound like way more fun than going on a diet?
How to Get Started Losing Weight
I believe that weekly one-on-one coaching is the BEST way to achieve all the above. I care deeply that you get the best results possible in the shortest amount of time. I don’t want you to ever have to diet again.
If you have struggled with an extra 20 to 40 pounds for years, then six months to clear that up for good can be an amazing investment for you.
I’m not saying it will feel easy all the time. It will feel doable and you’ll never have to do it on your own.
I believe that all women who come to coaching already have determination, commitment, and even willpower. None of that is the problem.
If you are functioning well in most areas but this one is driving you crazy—then coaching is the best decision you can make for yourself.
In six months, you will be amazed at how far you’ve come!
To get started, let’s talk. I’d love to see you getting results RIGHT NOW, instead of waiting until the next year, which usually turns into another year.
