Like many of us, weight and everything that comes with it have been an issue for me for quite some time now. And after many different attempts, where I lost weight but then couldn’t sustain the program, and then gained back all the weight and more, I finally realized that I was tired of doing it this way. If it were going to work, it would have by now. I’m ready for a new way to do this, even though I have absolutely no idea what that new way will look like, or when I might possibly discover it.
So I was talking about all of this with my coach, and she said, “The only way weight loss works is if you do it in a way that is kind and loving to yourself.”
I said, “Well, I hear the words you are saying , but I don’t know anyone who’s ever done that. So when you speak of these things, I feel the same way I do when someone claims to have discovered Big Foot in the North Georgia mountains. I mean, do you actually know anyone who’s ever done that?”
“I do,” she reassured me.
“Well, you’ve never lied to me before, so I guess I’ll take your word for it.”
“No, I’ve never lied to you. And I promise, this is not a Weight Loss Urban Legend.”
