How Coaching Can Help You Achieve Your Weight Loss GoalsJun 19, 2021
Ever had this happened to you?
You get really excited, you get started on your goal to slim down, you're doing really well, you see the scales moving down, your clothes feel looser, then something happens. You get off track and struggle to get back ‘on.’
This is where working with a coach can help. Its not so much to keep you on track, but to help you navigate life's circumstances that come up and get in your way – and things are always going to come up.
There will be times when you feel you’re struggling to do what you know is best for you, what will help you reach your goal. Don’t ever be embarrassed if this happens. I see this all the time and this is why I became a coach and chose to specialise in HOW to do what you know!
Weight loss is not only about what you eat, but the when, why and how much and this is more to do with what's going on in your mind rather than your knowledge.
We all overeat at times, but if you are doing it often, or at least more than you'd like, you need to look at why. There is always a trigger, in fact there will be many triggers in your life that encourage you do to so. Its about exploring what they are and finding ways to manage them.
Overeating is a habit and habits by their very nature are hard to change. That’s why working with a coach can help you through this process. Change feels uncomfortable as your brain wants you to keep doing what you have always done, even if its not getting you the results you want. A coach can also help you identify blind spots - areas in your life, how you are thinking or feeling, or what you are doing that are getting in the way of you making the changes you seek, without you realising it.
The brains main job is to keep you alive and one of the ways it does this is by being as efficient as possible. It controls EVERYTHING your body does as well as all the decisions you make every day. That is an incredible amount of work for such a small organ to do. It needs to be efficient in order to get all of this done daily and make sure you don’t die along the way!
Change brings up fear of the unknown, the brain can interpret this as danger and give you all the warning signs in the form of uncomfortable feelings and/or excuses which most people take as a sign to give up.
Such excuses can include:
“This is so hard”
“I just don’t have the time”
“It doesn’t matter what I do, I won’t succeed" or
"Even if I do lose weight, it will just come back on anyway”
Your brain can provide a very convincing argument encouraging you to get 'off track' or give up so it can return to doing what it's used to, what it’s most familiar with.
In coaching we describe this as a 'thought error.' Your brain is concerned that what you are wanting to do may threaten your survival. This is leftover programming from tribal times when the world was a much scarier place!
But this is why it’s so important to get help during this process.
It’s hard to navigate change on your own, so know that I am here to help, never to judge.
Your time with me is a judgement free zone, because judgement NEVER helps, it only every hurts. It keeps you stuck doing the same old thing and getting you the same results.
