Keeping Excess Weight Off

By Lisa Goldberg, Licensed Clinical Nutritionist

Why do you think sustainable weight loss eludes you?  You’re smart, savvy and you know what healthy is and what it’s not. You’ve probably read a million books and articles on eating healthy for weight loss. You have all of the information.  So how is it you know what to do but you just can’t do it??

Your struggle with weight just drains you. You wrack your brain wondering why the weight just won’t come off no matter what you do. You have tried every trick in the book. You lose weight but over time the weight slowly comes back on. Or maybe for you it quickly comes back.

What do you think that’s all about? Lack of motivation? Lack of willpower? Laziness?

I want to let you know its not any of those things. It’s about your self-defeating behaviors.

What exactly are self-defeating behaviors? Actions or attitudes stemming from faulty or limited beliefs that once worked to help us cope with hurtful experiences, but now they prevent us from responding to life in healthy ways.

These behaviors lead us to make choices in all aspects of our life, health, work, relationships etc that perpetuate cycles of failure. Samples of this include: My metabolism is broken so why should I try? Nothing works for me. I am destined to be overweight. No matter what I do the weight will come back. I’m afraid to fail again… Do any of these sound Familiar?

It is your self-defeating behaviors and faulty beliefs that keep you stuck in your struggle with food, weight loss, relationships and anything else you haven’t been able to sustainably change in your life.

This is why the weight always comes back. Because all you’ve done is focus on changing the food. You’ve haven’t yet addressed the “Why.”

You can continue to try every diet on the planet but unless you change what you believe about yourself and the behaviors that follow…the weight will always come back.

Close your eyes for a few seconds and imagine what it would feel like to continuously replace self-defeating behaviors with life-enhancing behaviors. You continuously make choices that make you feel good, happy and proud. Imagine how that would feel? Pretty darn good, right? Well, I want to let you know this is possible.

I want to let you know that by learning the right tools and strategies you can change your self-defeating behaviors to new, habitual life-enhancing behaviors so you can overcome your struggle with food and lose the weight for good.

After all, you know its never really about the food. It’s about changing the habits, behaviors and your old coping mechanism that causes you to eat to soothe your feelings with food. If you are done with the quick fixes and you are ready to address the root cause of your yo-yo dieting, don’t wait any longer to set up a call with me to see how I can support you.

Don’t let fear of change, fear of failure, indecision or caring what other people think stop you. Life is just too short to stay stuck in old patterns that no longer serve you. Over the last 16 years I have had hundreds of clients put their trust in me to help them change the behaviors that keep them stuck in their struggle with food and desirable weight loss. Here are some of their discoveries and Ah-ha moments:

“Thanks to you for the large part, I have not been bingeing even through all this! I haven’t lost anymore but I haven’t gained either.  I already knew everything you taught me however you say it in a magical way that I truly get it!”

“I am a totally different in terms of how I eat and how I think about food. All the techniques we have discussed were extremely helpful in getting me to this point which I call “autopilot.” I have started focusing less on restricting my intake and more on eating healthy foods”

“Posting a few wins that happened this week. I received a few compliments that I have really “slimmed down” and it shows in my clothes. I think by not letting the number on the scale stress me out and dictate my mood for the day – I have been able lose more inches.”

“I’m really understanding now when you said it’s just food – it has NO magical powers. It might make me feel good for a few seconds but that is nothing compared to how long the great feeling for losing weight and being healthy lasts. I’m going to remember that at difficult or stressful times and in the heat of the moment when my mind thinks of nothing but food and I start reaching for the food that I think will “solve” my unpleasant feeling.”

Take the first step at this very moment to start to change your self-defeating behaviors and stop saying “What if I can’t?” and start saying “Yes, I can!”

You will feel inspired and ready. Not to mention fully equipped to meet and maintain your goals, free yourself from the dreaded “dieter’s mentality,” master your own mindset and change your life forever.

I remember when I was a little kid and saw one of the first curse words I’d ever learned written out (and even appearing in public no less!) in the form of a bumper sticker that read, “Sh*t happens.” While the saying got a chuckle out of me at the time (much to the chagrin of my parents), little did I realize that said bumper sticker was offering up an insightful life philosophy worth pondering.

Like it or not, it turns out that sh*t does happen. And yeah, this is me (an eternal optimist as many of you faithful readers know) blogging this. But when you think about it, acknowledging that sh*t does happen doesn’t make someone a pessimist. It just makes them wise to acknowledge that it does sometimes happen. Whether or not life’s “sh*t” (however you define it) disrupts our everyday, it’s how we handle it that really matters (and, therefore, actually determines whether one is an optimist or not).

Recently, the sh*t has hit the fan for a couple close friends of mine. And given that I’ve dealt with my own forms of sh*t over the years, my friends often turn to me for advice. These days, I’m all about being proactive. So recently when a friend told me he was worried about losing his job, I told him to plan for it. Same was true when a girlfriend recently confessed that she was scared about getting a divorce since she still loved her husband and they had several young children. Again, I suggested she plan for it.

Now, I wasn’t telling these friends that losing a job or a spouse was inevitable. I was letting them know that having a “Plan B” would actually help them sleep better at night – not to mention give them the knowledge to know that no matter what transpired, they had a plan and, thus, they would both be okay. In fact, I firmly believe that sometimes just having a plan in place keeps the bad (or sh*tty!) things from happening all together. But there will be days that bad things do happen. So we might as well be prepared for them.

In the past, when I feared something would go wrong or that I’d be hit with devastating circumstances, I would worry, moan and shift into victim-mode. This was basically a way of letting evryone around me (along with the universe) know that I was useless and couldn’t handle any life altering event thrown my way. What a wimp I was.

The fact of the matter is, challening things are going to happen from time to time. But again, it’s not these life events that define us, it’s how we handle them.

One day I simply learned that knowing how I would handle any situation I was worried about happening took away all of the situation’s power (whether it eventually happened or not). Don’t get me wrong. I want my friend to keep his job. And I want my girlfriend to stay married to her husband (for their sake and the sake of their three kids). But if either of these situations do not work out, it will be for the best. The choice is theirs how quickly ‘the best’ arrives into their lives. It might be days after the supposedly devestating event. Or it might be weeks. Or, as it was with me in regard to some of life’s past blows, it might be years. Again, the choice is theirs… And mine… And yours.

Is there something you’re facing that’s infecting your life with fear and worry? Whether smallish or potentially life–altering, I suggest you sit down and begin to write out your Plan B. You might not arrive at all the answers and strategies you’ll need to rise like a phoenix from the ashes right away. But starting your Plan B is just that – a start. And a very fine way for you to prove to your boss, to your spouse or whomever (even the universe – or, better yet, yourself) that you’ve got what it takes to not only survive, but to thrive.
