I don't know about you, but I really, really LOVE to eat!
I eat when I'm stressed, bored, happy, sad...you name the emotion and I love to eat!
I am also a bartender/server so I am around food ALL day. And not what you would consider to be "healthy" food either.
Oh no, sweetheart! Where I work is considered to be more of a "comfort" food type place.
You know what I'm saying...mashed potatoes, gravy, burgers, and fries, oh my!
Chances are, on any given day, I'll encounter some stress, boredom, happiness, and/or sadness.
Hahaha! Well, that's just hilarious!
Seriously, who am I kidding?!
I experience ALL those emotions EVERY day. And that doesn't even include the hormonal cravings.
Can you relate?
When I was considering "going on a diet" two years ago I knew I didn't want to give up the foods I loved let alone entire food groups.
No carbs? No thank you!
I knew I didn't want to live in restriction, fear, or guilt mode anymore, constantly worried about what I was putting in my mouth.
Counting calories, macros, carbs, fat grams, sugar content...I was just SICK of it all!
None if it worked anyway!
My life is packed with way too many emotions on a daily basis. Worrying about what I am going to eat just added more stress!
I wanted to just LIVE my life like all the other normal weight people I see bee-bopping around.
I mean seriously, people come into the restaurant and order whatever they want...they are not overweight! How do I do that, is what I really wanted to figure out!
So I did something radically different than anything I'd ever done before! I started LISTENING to my body and what MY body was telling me I needed for the first time in my life!
I stopped counting calories and started counting on my body to let me know what it needed.
What I didn't realize until I had lost all my weight is that I actually adopted two powerful lifestyle changes that are simple, effective, and sustainable for life.
They are so simple in fact, anyone can do them even you!
I am no longer afraid to work around food all day. I no longer have the shame or guilt I used to feel for eating something "off plan" or "falling off the wagon".
I actually enjoy meal time these days! I love to try new restaurants and recipes I've found in my mom's old cookbooks!
But what I love the most about my new lifestyle is actually being able to sit down and share the SAME meal with my family and friends.
So, let me ask you, where are you struggling?
Are you an emotional eater like me who's sick of being afraid or feeling guilty around food?
Are you ready to end the yo-yo dieting roller coaster you've been on all your life and finally make lasting, sustainable changes to your weight and overall health?
How can I help you finally be successful with your weight loss goals?
I can't wait to hear from you!
