I don’t like using the words ‘weight loss’ at all! It’s loaded with emotion, it’s an ugly, unhelpful concept. The thing is those are the words most will google to get help. They will search for weight loss in a low defeated, painful moment. They might even write extreme or fast weight loss. This is the reason why I write these words together and here on this page. So that I can be found. Because if you’ve found me it’s because you need me. You need to begin something new, something different. A new long-term, health focused, confidence building approach. Maybe it’s time to mend a relationship with your body, your food and yourself instead.
– starting horrible restrictive diets, breaking them, then feeling defeated.
– Eating your emotions to feel better.
– punishing your body with unhealthy food. Because you believe it’s letting you down.
– gaining weight or wearing baggy clothes. As a way of keeping yourself from being seen.
No more feeling like getting the body you want is a battle you are never going to be able to win.
In this picture with my beloved Josefina I was at my heaviest. Miserable and working at a job I hated for four euros an hour. My confidence was so low I was grateful for it. I was too scared to step on the scales. Ignoring the fact that my clothes hurt because they didn’t fit. Never looking in the mirror. Pretending life wasn’t happening yet too scared to change anything. My self belief was too low to believe I could.
Back then I thought this was just how I was and this would be life for me. It was a miserable cycle and I couldn’t figure out how to break it. My way of eating had become a disorder and I was using food to punish and hurt myself. Using weight as a shield and a procrastination tactic. As long as I was overweight I was safe. All of my energy was focused on my obsession with my weight instead of my relationship with myself. To release the weight I would have to finally and permanently confront this.
I am now back in control of my weight after three years. It was so hard to sort myself out after having my baby and I felt desperate. I saw Jessica for three sessions and I listened to the download she made me nearly every night. Last Saturday night for the first time in four years I wore a dress I hadn’t got in to since before I had Emily. I called Jessica to let her know! If you are struggling with your weight please call Jessica. – Olivia
