I Wasn’t Always Slender!

I Wasn’t Always Slender!

 

People who know me now usually think I’m naturally slender and don’t need to do much to stay that way.

 

While that may be true now, that was NOT always the case! Actually, I struggled with my weight (and overall health) for years and years and YEARS (and was almost 30 pounds heavier than I am now, with pre-diabetes). Nothing was working – believe me, I tried it all from diets to exercise to injections, to natural (and not so natural supplements). I tried cleanses, skipping meals and fasting, even going 19 days on only vegetable juice and water. I tried acupuncture, hypnotherapy, diuretics, and so much more. Nothing would happen or (worse) I’d lose weight only to gain it back. I had pretty much resigned myself to being overweight.

 

Except I knew the healthy me was in there somewhere. I kept experimenting until I finally discovered how to easily and almost-effortlessly be healthy/slender (I am 5’7″ and easily maintain a healthy weight of 130 pounds). My struggles motivated me to guide others!

 

There’s no need to keep struggling, ~Contact.FirstName~ – don’t take my word for it, check out what my clients have to say

 

 

My success is in tying together two critical pieces:

1) internal work (happiness that isn’t tied to external factors, mindset, beliefs, blocks, etc),

2) strategy, action-taking, addressing pathogens, shifting behaviors and sticking with it long enough to become new habits

 

Both are equally important and both MUST be synchronized – that’s why diets or traditional programs don’t tend to have high success rates (success = losing AND keeping the weight off for over 1 year).

 

In my experience, both parts require external guidance, direction, encouragement, accountability, etc…i.e., a mentor.

If you’re saying to yourself, yes but being overweight runs in the family (possibly true, possibly all lifestyle-created) so genetically I can’t be healthy/slender (totally untrue), you’re creating a false self-fulfilling prophecy for yourself! I used to cite that reason too…expect, it’s A LIE, a limiting belief that can keep you stuck your entire life.

 

I do not view excess weight in terms of appearance. Weight/body mass index (BMI) is an indication of overall health. I do what I do to create more health and happiness in the world! 

 

Complications/risk factors that arise from being overweight or obese include heart disease, stroke, diabetes (type 2), some cancers, gallbladder disease, kidney disease, liver disease, osteoarthritis, gout, infertility, problems during pregnancy, breathing problems such as sleep apnea and asthma. 

BMI (body mass index) is a more accurate indicator of healthy weight (as compared to weight alone). Use this calculator from CDC to calculate your BMI.

 

A healthy BMI is 18.5-24.9. If your BMI is 25 or above, it’s time to make changes.
