Life & Weight Coach

elections and weight loss

When we feel stress, anger and judgement …we spin around questioning everything that is going on and “wishing” things were different, leaving us feeling out of control.

elections and weight loss

You’d have to be living under a rock not to know of the big election in the USA on November 3rd.

It is not my intention to be political…but rather…to be your coach.

To help you to show up as the best version of yourself…on days when it might be challenging.

To help you to choose joy…even when you don’t think you can.

Because as a Life Coach, helping you create a healthy relationship with food and with yourself is my priority.

And when we feel stress, anger and judgement …we spin around questioning everything that is going on and “wishing” things were different, leaving us feeling out of control.

We resist what is happening in our life and stay stuck from moving forward.

How does this effect weight loss?

Well, when we have emotions like stress, anger, judgment and frustration…we often turn to food for comfort.

As humans, we are desperate to feel in control – so we do things that we CAN control…even if they don’t move us closer to our goal.

We do things (often mindlessly) like eating a whole bag of chips, pouring a second (or third) glass of wine or scrolling on social media, instead of going for that walk.

“At least we are in control” our brain thinks!
But none of this is moving us closer to our goal.

 

So today, I want to remind you of what you ARE in control of.

YOU ARE IN CONTROL OF YOUR THOUGHTS.

The same thoughts that are making you feel stressed, angry, judgemental, frustrated and stuck.

The same thoughts that create you to turn to food when you think them.

YOU are in control of what you think.

I empower you today to be mindful of the thoughts you are having, when the only conversation is on something out of your control.

In love and light,

Laurie
