DESPERATE TO LOSE WEIGHT?
I 1000% UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU'RE COMING FROM.
A few years ago, I was in exactly the same place. I had uncontrollable cravings, frequent mood swings, addiction to sugar, zero motivation to exercise, and I was desperate to lose weight.
It sucked. I had a notebook (this was before apps!) where I tracked my calories. I carried it with me everywhere, spent hours looking up calories in different foods online, and avoided friends and family because they “didn’t get it" and called me obsessed (Pshhh). I worked out for hours each day and abused diet pills. Okay, so I guess I was obsessed. But it felt like extremes were my only option – nothing else had worked. Can you relate?
On one hand, I desperately wanted to lose weight. On the other hand, it felt like I had to be obsessed and dedicated to nothing but food or I'd be fat but at least kind of enjoying my life. Both options sucked, but I thought that being skinny would somehow make it all better – if I could just get there.
Eventually, I realized that neither option worked. There were healthy, fit, and happy women out there who weren’t starving and lonely. I decided to start health coach training just to learn about nutrition for me.
