It’s Not Worth Beating Yourself Up Over the Past

This was a massive one for me, and I know it’s a massive one for my clients as well.
I always used to blame the past for where I was at.
Of course, what I did in the past, e.g. overeating, eating crap and not exercising regularly, and just not taking care of myself lead me to being overweight.
I was angry with myself for not taking better care of myself.
At one point, I was off work for 3 months, as I was in between jobs. It could have been the ideal time to take myself in hand and go to the gym every day, and eat better, etc.
However, the uncertainty of not knowing when I would have another job took the best of me, and I comfort ate, and didn’t really feel like going to the gym.
I remember that when I started the new job, I was angry and disappointed with myself for not using that time.
Still today, what I have done in the past, leads me to what I am today.
I know very well, that I am not where I want to be today, partially because I had a car accident some years ago, and it took ages to get the injuries sorted.
However, beating myself over it, won’t help.
It is what it is. It’s a reality.
I was then what I was, and I am now what I am.
All I can do, is make sure that the future is different, by acting differently every day as of today.
I can’t go back to the past and change it. So let’s move on and focus on today and the days to come.

"I was very unhappy, overweight and low in confidence. Although I cooked relatively healthy meals, I was eating unhealthy things every day and quickly getting bigger and bigger. Before starting the programme, I was worried it wouldn't address the underlying issue of why I ate that way or change it, meaning that it wouldn't result

Be Ready to Become a Different Person

Losing masses of weight every week is not normal and doesn’t lead to long term results

Achieving the so called “perfect body” requires hard work

We’re all influenced by the media, and what we perceive as the “perfect body”.
Slim legs, toned arms, a nice small bum, and a flat tummy (I won’t even go as far as a six pack).

It’s something, we as women somehow all aspire to, and are made to belief that it’s the ideal.

Life will always happen

I’ve always been very harsh on myself.

At school, was a good pupil, and if I struggled with something, I used to study a lot to get it right, and have good grades.

Same at uni.

And later on workwise, I always wanted to be successful. Be the best. Overachieve on targets, and working in sales, it was a great environment for me.
I rarely missed a target.

You can have a social life when on a “diet”

Whenever I tried to lose weight and went on a diet, I tried to make sure I didn’t have to go out socially.

As going out socially for me always meant having a dessert, potentially some alcohol, and generally a 3 course meal, with chips (always chips).
