Happy Tuesday! Here we are 5 days away from Christmas! It has been my pleasure leading you from the fall into this season with helpful tips and action steps to launch you into better healthy habits, especially at this difficult time of yummy temptations and treats galore. I hope you took at least one strategy and tried it.
If you tried to avoid gaining holiday weight and it worked, good for you! If you implemented some new strategies and lost some weight, good for you! If you gained some weight, today can be the day you make some changes. The point is that there is no right or wrong place to be right now. The power is within yourself. YOU get to decide the direction in which you move your health.
Now is a good opportunity to step back and pause to think about what you did differently and how it worked for you. How much effort did you put into getting results? How did you shift old ways of thinking to newer ones? How do your results feel? How do you feel about your overall health today and how is that different from a few months ago? This is the time to assess what you did and what you didn’t do so that you can move to the next step.
The new year is soon upon us and most people jumpstart new eating patterns and new resolutions thinking that they should wait until then. I’d like to suggest that you start one new habit TODAY! Why wait? What are you waiting for…really! Something to think about!
I will be guiding new clients as the year begins, so why haven’t you invested in your health yet by working with me? I’m ready to help you look better, feel better, and be your best self on the inside and out! Contact me today to set up a complimentary discovery session so that we can get started on your journey! I’m ready…are you???

Happy Tuesday! When you want to start losing weight, the biggest question probably is, “WHERE DO I START?” Chances are, the thought of getting started feels big and full of overwhelm, right? Other questions can pop up too, like “This is so out of control, so what do I do? Where do I start? How do I know what to do to make changes? How did I get here? Will this work? How long will it take?” These are just a few of the typical questions that your brain loves to ask with panic and stress when weight loss comes up. It’s normal for your thoughts to create a story of it being too big for you to handle.


Here’s a great visual that I use to help clients sort through the overwhelm with anything, but with weight loss in particular. Imagine yourself sitting on the living room floor and all of the loads of laundry that you just spent hours washing and drying is poured over your head. Every single piece of laundry is scattered on you and around you all at once. How does that feel? Probably very overwhelming! It’s too big to handle! It’s a big mess! Well, we tend to view weight loss in the same way: it’s too big, it’s too much, it’s a mess to figure out.


When your laundry is scattered about, you simply fold it, sort it in piles, put it neatly back in the basket , and distribute it to family members’ rooms. SIMPLE! So, I offer that you look at weight loss in the same way. It can be sorted into smaller chunks of what needs to be done and can be dealt with step by step, one action at a time. Getting started takes courage because you are facing the fact that change needs to happen and that it will be work. When you make that decision based on where you are now, you’re ready to move forward. Not looking back with unkind, punishing words to yourself allows you to move forward to where you want to be. When we drive a car, we don’t look in the rear view mirror the entire time; we look forward. Weight loss is the same.


So, as fall approaches and the holidays will be here before you know it, I invite you to decide what you’d like to set for a weight loss goal and simply take the first step to sort through the overwhelm in order to move forward! I’d love to work with you one on one to get you started, so reach out to me to begin your journey! You are worth it!
