An Enlightening Lesson In Weight-Loss, Fear, & Why The Universe Is A Friendly Place

Lesson for your weight-loss journey

I believe the universe is a friendly place that’s always trying to help you. Here’s why:

Writing my weight-loss book was the hardest thing I ever had to do. I had to let myself be vulnerable and honest in a way I usually avoid. I had to offer healing to strangers with no idea of the outcome.

When I started writing it, I had two quotes on my desk. One of them was this:

Just when the caterpillar thought its life was over, it became a butterfly.

That caterpillar was in fear. It thought there was nothing left for it. It thought it was too late and it wanted to give up and just wait to die.

Lesson for your weight-loss journey: you’ll want to quit

I spent 4 years writing Start Where You Are Weight Loss®. I can’t tell you how many times I wanted to quit.

  • Every time I felt emotionally exposed.
  • Every time I had thoughts of self-doubt.
  • Every time I let fear creep in (what’s the outcome going to be, what if I can’t finish it, what if no one reads it, what if, what if, what if)

Lesson for your weight-loss journey: you’ll get what you need

And every time the wanting to quit got really bad, that quote showed up in my life.

  • It was on a greeting card somebody sent me.
  • Then it was on a paperweight I walked past in a store.
  • It was on a sign taped in a restaurant window as I walked in.
  • Later, it was scrawled on someone’s notebook at the table next to me in the coffee shop.

And on and on it went with that quote showing up over and over just when I needed it most.

 

 

Lesson for your weight-loss journey: all you have to do is keep going

I like to think it was the universe looking out for me.

I also like to think that Start Where You Are Weight Loss® was meant to be written so I got what I needed to keep me going.

I share all that to say this: whatever your chrysalis feels like right now (dark, damp, cold, smothering, or suffocating), I just want you to know that it’s not the end . . . all you have to do is keep going, even if it’s just one tiny step at a time, and something amazing and awe-inspiring will be on the other side.

My weight-loss journey & how it can help you with yours

I got free. Your life can be that way too.

I made my own path because I needed to get myself out of the crazy-making behavior I was having around food. I needed no restrictions, no weighing and measuring food, no off-limit foods, no more judgment around food, no more judging my self-worth based on the scale, no more you’re-not-doing-it-perfectly diet rules that were only fueling my constant thinking about and obsession with food. I needed to modify and change any weight-loss technique I found useful to suit my own personal needs.

  • I lost 160+ pounds naturally & have kept it off for 8 years and counting.
  • I no longer have any eating disorders.
  • I no longer have a fear of food.

Just imagine what you could be doing with your life, following your own dreams and reaching your own goals, cultivating your own passions, making both your inner and outer worlds a more blissful and peaceful place, if you weren’t running in circles on the diet-go-round.

I got that for my life. I want it for yours. My books will show you how.
