In this episode of the podcast, I go deep into the inner workings of the journey to self-love. It takes serious work, and you aren’t going to get where you’re going over night.
There are a lot of things that go into it – it takes time, discipline, commitment, energy, and let’s face it – WORK. But don’t get discouraged just because it can get hard sometimes. All good things take time and energy.
This is a journey to having a relationship with yourself – to loving yourself unconditionally. It’s about learning about yourself and starting over. If you really want to heal your relationship with food and your body, it will undoubtedly take some work.
But you need to know that you are WORTH the effort and the hard work. You have to know without a shadow of a doubt that you can get through this, because on the other side is freedom. Freedom from food, freedom from the scale, freedom from the fight with your body.
I’m still going through this myself. I have hard days and then I have really hard days. But the difference now is that I know that my old behaviors are not going to get me to where I want to go. They aren’t in alignment with who I want to be, so I don’t engage in them.
You cannot go through this alone. You have to believe in something bigger than yourself. Ask God for help, and if you aren’t religious, ask the Universe and use the Law of Attraction. But I promise you that you cannot do this by yourself. I tried – and I failed until I could not try anymore.
To heal and recover, we have to get real with ourselves and look at parts of ourselves that we don’t love. That can be painful, but it’s also necessary. That’s why you need the support of others, and God (or the Universe) to help you through.
Change does not happen overnight. You have to stay committed and ask for help when you need it. The bottom line is that you do not have to struggle anymore.
I created my program, Body Redeemed, to help support you in your journey. I help you break old habits and guide you to a place of self-love and acceptance; which ultimately helps heal your relationship with your body and with food. Lose weight (or gain weight if you need it) without dieting. I created a free e-book download for you, and you can sign up for a free discovery call with me if you are interested in learning more about the program.
You don’t have to struggle anymore, as long as you’re willing to do the work!
This episode is all about your confidence, and how to start increasing your confidence starting right now! We’ve all been somewhere and seen a person enter the room and completely own it. This person exudes confidence – they’re funny, smart, captivating, mysterious, and sociable. They own their presence, and everyone is attracted to this person. Well what if I told you that person could be you??
In this episode, I teach you six ways that will help you start building your confidence right away. Confidence is a muscle – the more you use it; the more you practice it; the stronger it gets! But on the other hand, if you don’t use it, you lose it! I want you to fully own your journey, and that means owning all of you! So use my top six tips on how to start building your confidence as soon as you finish listening to this podcast.
#1. Stop speaking negatively about yourself to fit in. Instead, change the conversation to a more positive, uplifting topic. Compliment someone for something they do well; or talk about something that you’ve recently started working on to improve.
#2. Know who you are! Know your strengths. Ask yourself what you’re really good at, and write it down.
#3. What do you really like about yourself physically? What do you really like about your personality? Write all the things you like about yourself down on the same piece of paper as #2.
#4. Do something that gets you outside of your comfort zone and builds your confidence. The more you prove to yourself that you can do new things, and do them well, your confidence increases!
#5. Show interest and engage in other peoples’ lives. Ask questions! Be curious.
#6. Surround yourself with people who lift you up, and rid yourself of the people that drag you down. If you can’t eliminate them from your life, create boundaries with them. Tell them what you’re comfortable with discussing, and what you’re not comfortable with!
