You want to lose 20lbs. You look to your past and think, “I’ve done it before, I can do it again.”
Even though you ended up gaining the weight back that you lost, you think you shouldn’t need help, you’ll just do what you did back then.
And you don’t want to look for help because you’re a Life Coach and you should “know” how to do it.
This is where we get ourselves into trouble.
How you did it in the past isn’t what’s going to work now or in the future.
It wasn’t sustainable or you would have easily kept the weight off.
But we avoid asking for help to “save” money, time, and energy (and to save face if we’re being honest with ourselves).
So instead we:
👉 look to the past,
👉 do those quick-fix diets, juice cleanses, and crazy exercise regiments we’ve done before,
👉 lose weight,
👉 stop doing those things because they were just quick-fixes,
👉 gain the weight back,
👉 go into a shame spiral,
👉 rinse & repeat.
I have done this. My clients have done this. And maybe you’ve done this, too.
