What You Must Do to Win at Weight Loss: Reframe Failure & Empower Yourself Right Now To Succeed

To win at weight loss, you need to reframe failure. So here’s a quick story: Once upon a time, there was a girl who had a dream, tucked in her ribcage right against her heart. She was afraid of risk, afraid of what might happen if she stepped out to pursue it, afraid of failure. But she did step out, telling herself to have faith, walking in the direction her heart told her to go. She put all her hopes on the line. And she failed. Publicly. Humiliatingly. That failure hurt so badly that the next time opportunity came knocking, she shook her head and whispered no and shut the door.

To win at weight loss, believe there are only two choices

But what if that girl stopped believing in failure?

  • What if she started believing that there were only two choices when she stepped out in faith and tried something, those choices being either success or learning?
  • How would her life look if she could simply reframe that experience so it served her better, served as something she could grow from instead of be defeated by?
  • What if she looked at that failure like it was an experience full of lessons for her to learn?

Well, her life would look a lot like a girl full of her own power. It would look like a girl making choices in her own best interests. It would look like a life free of the constraints of fear.

To win at weight loss, realize you’re going to fail at some point

I just want you to know that you’re going to fail at some point while you’re losing weight. You might overeat or binge or purge or do something else that makes you feel like quitting. You’re also going to fail while just living your life. You might fail quietly when it’s not that big a deal or you might fail spectacularly when the stakes are really high. You’re likely to fail many, many times.

Don’t think you’re alone in that. I don’t even know how many times I’ve failed. I stopped keeping track as soon as I stopped believing in failure.

 

 

To win at weight loss, simply change your mind

The trick to overcoming failure is to stop believing in it. All you have to do is change your mind, and reframe how you look at things. There is no failure; there’s only success or learning. Once you reframe it like that, the pressure’s off and you simply have to keep learning until you succeed.

My weight-loss journey & how it can help you win at weight loss

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.
