Since I began my business in 2009, I have had the honor to work with so many amazing people. Each client encounter is personal, individual, and enlightening; for them and for me.
While everyone is different, there are so many commonalities.
Oftentimes when we are battling with our own weight and body issues, it is easy to think that we are the only one who struggles.
In this post, I wanted to share some of the comments I have received. I do this in the hope that you will see that you are not alone’
“I had no sense of portion control and thought about how I would eat, and what I could eat, much more than I wanted to. I was more involved with food choices than I wanted to be, and felt very stressed about not being able to lose weight.”
“I tried other weight loss programs and saw food as numbers. I thought I was doing all the right things. I even tried to be vegan for a while, thinking that the vegan diet would slim me down. I was at my highest weight ever when I contacted Annette. I felt like I was trapped in someone else’s overweight body. I didn’t recognize myself, and started to think I should just accept the weight gain as part of life.”
“I was out of control – alternating between starving, overeating and trying different diets. I was completely stressed out about food, not knowing what to eat, when to eat, what not to eat, and as a result, not eating healthfully and gaining weight.”
Does this sound familiar to you? Have you felt this way in your own life?
If so, it is up to you to decide when enough is enough.
Every change starts with a single action.
When you can see what is possible, you can achieve it. All it takes is the courage to believe that it is possible for you.
Here are some comments from a few of my clients who believed in themselves and their abilities to change:
“I am more relaxed around food and understand how to eat to enjoy food and feel satisfied. Food has become something I enjoy and want to choose wisely, but it no longer occupies my thinking…”
“I am much less stressed about food now— I can eat healthy foods which I enjoy now and I am not alternately starving and overeating. “
“Now I see food differently than before.”
“Annette taught me that my rollercoaster approach to dieting wasn’t necessary, and that it is possible to live without constantly thinking about my next meal.”
How would your life be different if you called a truce on your battle with food and dieting?
Now that you know that you are not alone, and that you can change your thoughts and behaviors around food…
