Lasting Weight Loss: First You Must Be Kind to Yourself

Lasting Weight Loss: First You Must Be Kind to Yourself

Don't underestimate the need for being kind to yourself. Most of us are our own worst critics.

We continuously judge ourselves and find it hard to let go of the self-blame, shame, and regret. 

But, if you want to get off the hamster wheel of dieting, you really must start to be kinder to yourself…

Before we continue, I want to give you a link to a free guide called Designing the Greatest Me. It's about designing the life you really want.

One of the most detrimental things we can do to our bodies is “go on a diet.” You're already on a diet. Your diet is the collection of your eating habits. 

Eating is so much more complicated than “calories in vs calories out.”

There's a good reason you crave so-called "unhealthy foods"

We didn’t evolve as humans with a desire for eating healthy foods. We evolved as a species by eating nutrient-dense foods to survive. I'll put a link to a really interesting article called "Our Moods, Our Foods" in the show notes on the site. Check it out. https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/03/our-moods-our-foods/284238/

Start first by being kinder to yourself

One of the most harmful aspects of modern dieting is the toll it takes on your self-esteem. Your body is biologically driven to survive. But, psychologically, we’re programmed to eat food for cultural, and emotional reasons. The fact is, food is necessary for survival.

Take a step back

If you find yourself having one of those internal monologues or conversations with yourself, and what you’re hearing is hurtful and mean, it’s time to take a minute and step back. 

The basic truth is that most of us could do with some adjustment to our bodies- or at least we think we need it. What we need more of though, are healthier relationships, a healthier mental attitude, more personal kindness, and acceptance of who we are.
