How many times are you going to “diet” – only to find yourself returning to said “diet” because you couldn’t stick with it?
Yo-yo dieting is quite real, and a very common struggle for many women who come to me for help. Mainly because, they have never learned HOW to maintain their lifestyle.
When you take on a goal of fat loss and then you have reached your goal, what do you do then? Do you have a plan? What are you going to do?
It’s really easy to just go back onto auto-pilot and return to what you have done prior, and what you are familiar with. However, this behavior, is just going to lead you right back to where you started, and feeling the need to diet again! It’s not called yo-yo dieting for no reason. And it’s not something that you want to continue doing.
Having a goal, and working towards it is a fairly simple process. The application of it is not always easy though, because many you may be missing the know-how and the support that is likely the missing link to why you haven’t been able to reach your goals and maintain them on your own in your past efforts.
It is much easier to navigate when you have a structured plan to get you there. Little by little, those small action steps that you take, day by day, start to add up to a lot of steps that will take you from Point A (where you are now) to Point B (your goal).
Statistics show that 95% of people who lose weight don’t keep it off.
True success would be if you followed a method that you could keep doing, and keep the weight off for good.
If you are part of the 95% of the population that has dieted, it’s likely that you’ll slowly start adding back foods, behaviors and habits that caused you to feel like you needed to “diet” in the first place, especially if your methodology was not sustainable which in turn also makes it not maintainable.
It is hard work getting to your goals, but it’s even harder learning to maintain those goals once you get there. So while dieting, in general, does have a goal, it’s really hard for people to see the value in learning the skills needed to maintain their lifestyle.
Diet’s do not teach you those skills. You have to be able to change your mindset & behaviors around the process itself.
If you’ve been following me for some time, you know that I stress simplicity, because simple = sustainable = maintainable. It allows you to see things from a different angle, one that is not complicated and easy to digest, step by step, until you have rewired your thoughts, habits and mindset – turning this process into a Sustainable & Maintainable LIFESTYLE without being tied to counting calories, macros or weighing your food.
If this sounds like you, if you can relate to any of what I have mentioned in this post, let me know in send me an email or a message, and let’s chat about some way that can help you can change this for good.
My success is your success – I am always here to help so never hesitate to reach out if you have any questions at all!
