Weight and Wellbeing Tips: Step 5
1st December, 2009
So to step 5
You are now identifying your triggers, you are also more aware of your thinking. How easy is it to turn to the negative and to use yourself as the scapegoat for everything in your life? You’ve been turning to food to avoid how this makes you feel and YOU can decide to change. Have you noticed how your thinking can sabotage success, in absolutely anything? This internal dialogue trips you up regularly and you are now ready to change it!
So now you’ve got a mental list of some of the areas of ‘chaos’ in your life, remember to make this a reality by producing the list on your computer or in a notebook. I like to encourage my clients to do a ‘lifestyle audit’ regularly, looking at what they want to work on, what they are choosing to change, it’s their life, not mine.
You’ve now got choices of how to work on change for life, some will seek to explore this area through books, workshops, seminars, etc and others will contact someone like me who specializes in educating and coaching clients to succeed, where the diets have failed. It’s easy to work at a distance over the telephone, using email support or to arrange a one to one session.
So whatever you do, remember as you approach 2010 that the diets didn’t work. Are you ready to make the journey and change for life?
