If you’re reading this, you’re probably on a weight loss journey of some kind. You’re wanting to lose weight, you’re working to lose weight, or you’re thinking about losing weight. But how often do you ask yourself why?
How often do you pause and connect with what it is you really want and why it matters?
I don’t think everyone needs to or should lose weight. I think weight loss is just a conduit to finding freedom in our minds so that we can have freedom in our bodies.
I don’t think it’s a necessary step that everyone should take in order to be okay in their bodies. You know by now that doesn’t work.
Weight loss is a goal and a challenge that can grow you in amazing ways. Weight loss should be driven by and led by love for ourselves.
So I want to take this opportunity to just pause. I want you to pause and check in with yourself. Wherever you are on your journey, ask yourself the following questions — and require yourself to answer.
Take as long as you need. Notice what comes up for you. Dive deeper. Understand. And love yourselves enough to honor the answers.
- What do I want?
- Why do I want it?
- What is the story I’m telling about my weight loss journey?
- Do I like that story?
- Do I want to keep telling it?
- How can I tell a new story?
- Who am I now?
- Who do I want to become through this process?
- Why does that matter to me?
So much love to each of you wherever you are on your journey. I’m here for you.
