Weight Loss

woman-arms-up

Imagine experiencing a day in which you didn’t once…

  • Obsess about your weight and your body.

  • Feel dread or fear about releasing weight.

  • Doubt your ability to release weight once and for all.

Imagine what it will be like to release weight from a body that you actually love and cherish!

If you’re like most people who want to lose weight, you probably know what to do. You’re educated about proper nutrition and you know the importance of exercise. You’ve read the latest tips about keeping a food diary, drinking lots of water and eating mindfully. Maybe you’ve tried all the popular fads, and yo-yo dieted for years… but you gain it all right back.

Most likely that’s because releasing weight isn’t only about you “doing” all the right things. Sure, healthy nutrition and exercise are important. But to permanently release weight from your body you must change how you think and feel.

It’s an inside job.

Your body, mind and spirit are connected. As you release negative thoughts and limiting beliefs from your mind and heaviness from your spirit, you’ll feel lighter on the inside. As you feel lighter on the inside, you’ll naturally be guided to healthier foods and activities that help you lose weight and create a lighter body.

Losing weight is not only about improving your diet… it’s about changing your consciousness.

You see, for many people—and perhaps you, too—extra weight is the symptom. To release weight permanently and create a thinner body, you must get to the root cause as to why the weight is there to begin with and why you may use food for comfort. For example:

Suzanne struggled with her weight her whole life. Diet after diet. Nothing worked until she realized her overeating episodes were her way of trying to avoid difficult emotions. She committed to look deeper and addressed the root cause. Pain and sadness had lived in her heart for a long time. As she found healthier ways to allow and express those feelings—and forgive herself and others—the weight began to release. Change happened only when Suzanne stopped trying to find the next best diet and began finding herself.

I know on some level it’s easier to believe the solution lies outside of you. The media hypes this to us all the time. We’re constantly bombarded with the latest weight-loss supplement (Burn Away Fat While You Sleep!), the next “Lose Weight Fast” diet (30 pounds in 30 days!) or those meal replacement and “craving crusher” shakes “guaranteed” to get you slim in no time.

So of course you may think, “All I have to do is stick to this diet and I’ll lose the weight.” And maybe you will…for a time. But are you making a permanent lifestyle change? Or simply taking a lifestyle detour?

Why Dieting Alone Won’t Work

The problem with restrictive diets is that even if you lose weight it’s hard to sustain the loss long-term. That’s because when underlying painful feelings and limiting beliefs resurface, it’s easy to revert back to your old comfort zone of compulsive eating and carrying the emotional protection of extra weight. For example:

Danielle worked with a dietician to help her lose the 50 extra pounds she was carrying. As the pounds dropped off… so did Danielle. She canceled appointments with her dietician, resumed her old haphazard eating habits and stopped taking daily walks in the park. And she began feeling anxious. Her dietician knew something emotional was going on, so she referred Danielle for counseling.

As I got to know her, I learned Danielle had been sexually abused by her stepfather for most of her childhood. Danielle began to discover that the extra weight on her body helped her feel protected. As she made the connection between being sexually abused as a child and her struggles with weight, she realized, “As I get thinner I feel scared that men will take advantage of me.” 

No matter how many diets Danielle followed, the weight could not come off until she felt emotionally safe. As she began the journey to overcome the effects of being sexually traumatized as a child, only then could Danielle begin to feel safe to release the weight. If you relate to Danielle’s story, learn more here about the connection between early sexual trauma and obesity.

It’s Time To Explore Your Emotions

Unless there are medical conditions involved, if you’ve struggled with weight issues for a long time chances are the difficulties are more emotional. Contrary to what you may think, weight loss has nothing to do with willpower. Whether you’ve experienced some kind of trauma or had difficulty coping with painful feelings for other reasons, don’t blame yourself, okay? It’s hard to overcome weight issues when you’ve been given the message to focus only on the weight and not the root cause.

Here’s how I can help…

Along with following a healthy nutritional plan (I suggest my clients meet with a registered dietician) and exercise program (walk, take dance classes, yoga, anything you enjoy doing that gets your body moving), here are some ways I can help you build a strong emotional, mental and spiritual foundation to make those lifestyle changes and release the weight… for the long-term.

Why I (often) use the phrase, “release weight” rather than “lose weight”

The terms “weight loss” and “losing weight” long have been associated with shedding those extra pounds. Because people search for information using these terms, I often use them, too.

But I’d like you to consider another way to think about letting go of your extra weight.

Words are powerful beyond measure. The meaning and intention of each word emits energy. This energy is on a continuum: From a high energetic vibration that uplifts you to a low energetic vibration that drains you… and everything in between.

When I work with clients, I’m vigilant about listening to the words they use. I teach them to change their energy—and their perspective—simply by using higher vibration words.

So when it comes to creating your slimmer body, think about this:

“LOSS” means “the state or feeling of grief when deprived of someone or something of value.” That definition doesn’t make you very happy, does it?

“RELEASE” means “allow (something) to move, act, or flow freely.” Sounds more uplifting, right?

The thing is, emotional eating and long-term weight issues are symptoms of something deeper. It’s not really about food and “losing” the weight. It’s about those painful feelings you’ve been holding in your mind, heart—and energy field—and learned to numb with food. As you allow the pain you’re holding onto to release—little by little—you lighten your heart. As you lighten your heart and no longer use food for comfort, you free yourself to gain confidence and unconditional self-love… and release the extra weight.

Here’s a simple exercise so you can see what I mean.



  • Get quiet. Close your eyes. Take a few breaths to relax.

  • Then, say to yourself three times: “I want to lose weight.”
  • Notice the sensations in your body. 

  • Clear that away and then repeat to yourself: “I want to release weight.”
  • Notice the sensations in your body. 

  • Open your eyes.



What do you notice?

How does your body feel?

Does your spirit feel light or heavy?



Several years ago I posted this exercise to my Facebook page. Here’s what people experienced:

“Saying ‘losing weight’ caused me to tighten up. ‘Release’ was a much softer request allowing me to let go.”


“Freeing and pleasant versus yucky.”


“’Lose weight caused me to feel anxious. Release weight left me feeling calm, determined and optimistic.”


“Lose weight immediately made me feel tight and release weight felt light.”



“It felt like to release something is to own my freedom to really love me and my body. No stress attached to saying release weight.”
 


You still may decide to say “lose weight” depending on who you’re talking with. But when you talk to yourself or like-minded people, practice using the term “release.”

It just may help lighten your journey.

And your body, too.
