I became morbidly obese in the early '90s due to my inability to live authentically. I wasn't comfortable being myself and struggled to find my truth. Food became my comfort, from secret meals and snacks to a lack of self-love and self-worth. I was eating into an inactive lifestyle filled with anxiety, type two diabetes, and various other medical and personal issues. I was also blaming everyone else for the bullshit I was creating!
I also realized I was demonstrating shitty leadership behaviours. I wouldn't, however, make this connection for several more years. At work, I was choosing to be impacted by my struggles and sometimes took my anger, sadness, frustrations and hostilities out on my staff. I wouldn't be blatantly rude to them, but I wasn't being overly supportive either. The aggressive, yelling boss isn't the only way to demonstrate shitty leadership behaviours. Sometimes the demonstrated behaviours and actions can be quite subtle.
Ask yourself, "Are you ready on the inside to make lasting changes on the outside?". Your solutions are already inside you; all you have to do is take that first step towards changing things for the better, including how you think, feel and behave.
The only thing stopping you is YOU!
You've tried and failed, and tried again and failed more. Forgive yourself because today is a new day and it is time for something different.
NSL focuses on the inside first. We won't talk about calories, low fat, exercise, nutrition or the mysterious magic pill. What we will discuss is YOU! How you think, feel and make choices.
We will discuss your current self-awareness, self-worth, self-love and even self-loathing. We will take a forward lens look as to what you will do different starting today!
There is work here to be done, and if you're tired of getting the same old results, then contact us and let's make today the first step toward becoming the best possible you!
I am not a personal trainer or nutritionist, and I am not a weight loss professional. These programs are great for those who are ready and able to follow them.
What I eventually was able to recognize was my patterns of behaviour. I started to understand my sabotaging ways and fears of weight loss success. Once I could get real with myself, and learn why I was staying morbidly obese, only then was I able to make lasting changes. It’s always a struggle, but the magnitude lessens with each positive change or action I take.
If you’re ready to get real with yourself and stop lying and worrying about what everyone else thinks, it’s time to start Unshittifying Your Life.
