Those were the words he/she uttered behind a quivering voice after sharing a story full of struggle, self-loathing, frustration, and disappointment…
My client had put on weight and had been in denial about it for a while. Unwilling to accept the reality and unwilling to commit to changing behaviours. Months went by then it turned into a few years. She couldn’t explain how she ended up speaking with me that day.
Where had time gone?
How had they gotten so out of control?
How had they not seen it coming more clearly?
And most frustratingly, why hadn’t he/she taken action sooner!?
Have you ever been there?
This is the experience the majority of my clients have when we first speak, before they’ve taken their first step. We are motivated by PAIN to change, and it’s in the moment that remaining the same feels more painful than changing that we’re actually able to commit. Sitting in shame that day, she finally committed to making the change. She couldn’t imagine another week or another month feeling this way.
So, she said yes to me and to herself. We worked on food, fitness, and mindset. She had the support and accountability necessary to follow through. The results weren’t just physical – getting back into old clothes, etc.
They were so much bigger than that…
A newfound confidence.
Proud of what they’d accomplished.
A closer connection to their spouse.
A better social life.
Feeling like her formerly vibrant self.
