Here’s how it goes down:
You promise yourself you’re not gonna eat ‘x’ food (ie. the bread from the bread basket out at dinner)...
And then the bread arrives, and you have some.
You think to yourself:
‘Dammit, what’s wrong with me?! I said I wasn’t gonna have any. How am I ever gonna lose this weight? UGHhh. Well, I already messed up, so maybe I’ll just say eff-it - and start on Monday’...
Typically, what ensues is a whole lot of eating. A whole lotta eating, even past the point of what actually feels good for you in your body. (aka: You eat until you feel stuffed. And awful. I know because I used to do the exact same thing).
THIS IS WHAT I LOVINGLY REFER TO AS THE ‘I ALREADY MESSED UP’ PHENOMENON.
(yes, trust me. It’s a thing. But also, you can totally de-condition it!)
One of the MOST common questions I get is - Brenda ‘HOW DO I STOP OVEREATING AND SABOTAGING MY GOALS?!’
In order to ‘stop’ it’s important to first understand what’s causing this...
THE CAUSE OF OVEREATING IN THIS WAY IS: ALL-OR-NOTHING THINKING.
On todays’ episode I break this down in a brand new way, and I also invite you into a new and upgraded possibility for your weight loss AND your life:
LOVE, AS THE NEW BASELINE FOR DECISION-MAKING.
Now, listen- before I get any eye rolls… ; )
And I know, I know this may initially sound way too over-simplified and cheesy, let me tell you: THIS IS THE MOST PRACTICAL AND EFFECTIVE THING YOU CAN DO.
It’s also essential for you to know that your current baseline for decision making is PERFECTIONISM and it’s JUST. NOT. WORKING.
I’M INVITING YOU TODAY INTO A COMPLETELY NEW POSSIBILITY.
*If you are willing to make this one upgrade (from perfectionism as your baseline, to LOVE as your new baseline) ...
Get ready to be done with the struggle.
Get ready to be done with the sabotage.
Get ready to be done with the ‘eff-it’ moments and overeating.
Get ready for SO MUCH MORE LOVE for yourself & your body AND those next-level results.
You do NOT wanna miss this one.
