Real change comes from working inside to outside

“As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I'd still be in prison.” - Nelson Mandela

When our desire to have the body we know we want goes unfulfilled for too long, we can feel like a prisoner in a body that we do not want. We can start feeling resentment toward ourselves, towards others and we can start to hate what we see in the mirror. These negative feelings actually hold us back from change often times encouraging us to stop dieting, cheat on our meal plans, skip our exercise and generally make our fitness transformation journey miserable and impossible to complete. 

The truth is in order to transform our bodies we must leave behind all of our negative emotion related to our bodies. We must create within ourselves the changed identity before our physical body will truly change. 

I had a client Mellisa not too long ago who felt this way about her body.  She desperately desired to lose weight and love her body, but she struggled for several years trying to get just 20 pounds off. I started working with her and in the first week she had an old belief that made her believe that she would always get stuck losing weight at a certain point. Like clockwork once she hit this magical number on the scale she would literally stop losing weight and things would get difficult. We dug into this on her discovery call and she came to realize that this was her limiting belief that had been holding her back for years. Once we cleared this, she lost all the weight she wanted and actually several pounds more than she expected. 

Know Mellisa is still at her ideal weight just 2 years since and she knows now that she is in control. If this sounds anything like you, then let’s talk. Before I make an offer to work with anyone, I do a free discovery call so that we both can get clarity on what might be holding you back. I love these calls because no matter if I make an offer to work with you or not, I walk away with a new friend and you walk away with more information to help you on your journey. 

If you want to discover what might be holding you back then book a Discovery call with me (link below) and let’s just talk. 

I am love. I am joy. I am so very good. And so are you!
