THE LAST 10™ POUNDS PODCAST
EP. 251- PARTNERSHIP WITH YOUR BODY (*de-condition perfectionistic thinking)
Women ALL around the world internally struggle with emotional eating and sabotage.
Here’s how it goes down:
You were planning to ‘eat healthy’ or ‘follow your diet’ but then… you eat an Oreo.
Next thing you know, you’ve spent the rest of the night eating the full package of Oreos.After having eaten all the Oreos, you overeat and sabotage all weekend long. You think to yourself:
‘Ugh. I did it again. I’ll start over and be really ‘on plan’ AFTER that…’
The reason I know exactly how this goes down, is because THIS was one of the cycles I was stuck in for decades. I’ve also coached HUNDREDS of women, from ALL walks of life on this exact overeating pattern.
Believe it or not, the cycle I’ve described here is fueled by: (drum roll please….) PERFECTIONISM.
I know this doesn’t ‘sound’ like Perfectionism. (And in fact, you’re likely thinking this doesn’t even apply to you because YOU see yourself as being FAR FROM PERFECT. )Here’s the wild thing though:
Perfectionism is a way of thinking.
‘Perfectionism’ doesn’t actually mean ‘being perfect’.
When it comes to weight loss and weight struggles, perfectionism rears its little head by leading you to believe that in order to be ‘done’ struggling with your weight: YOU NEED TO BE ‘PERFECT’ and you’ll need to ‘eat perfect‘ FOREVER.
FOR-E-VER. (ugh. I’m exhausted just thinking about ‘being perfect’ forever.)
One of the MOST common questions I get is – Brenda ‘HOW DO I STOP OVEREATING AND SABOTAGING MY GOALS?!’
In order to ‘stop’ it’s important to first understand what’s driving the overeating and sabotage…
THE CAUSE OF OVEREATING IN THIS WAY IS: PERFECTIONISTIC THINKING.
On todays’ episode I teach you a new concept and break perfectionism/perfectionistic thinking down in a brand new way.
I also invite you into a new and upgraded possibility for your weight loss AND your life:
BEING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH YOUR BODY.
Now, listen- I know this may sound way over-simplified but DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE the absolutely life-changing POWER OF being in partnership with your body.
THIS IS THE MOST PRACTICAL AND EFFECTIVE THING YOU CAN DO.
(It’s how I have maintained an 80 pound weight loss with ease and JOY, and love for years now- after having struggled for decades…)It’s vital for you to know that your means of approaching your desired results (*PERFECTIONISM) IS JUST NOT WORKING.
TODAY, I’m personally inviting you INTO A COMPLETELY NEW POSSIBILITY-
*IF you are willing to swap out Perfectionistic Thinking for instead: BEING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH YOUR BODY:
Get ready to be done with the struggle.
Get ready to be done with the sabotage.
Get ready to be done with the ‘eff-it’ moments and overeating.
Here, at THE LAST 10, we’re all about UPGRADES BABY.
Instead of being at war with yourself, and your body —> DECIDE TO BE IN THE MOST AMAZING, CONNECTED, LOVING PARTNERSHIP WITH YOUR BODY.
