How often do you ask yourself why you want to lose weight? Maybe you’re currently on your weight loss journey, or maybe you’re thinking about it, but I have recently become Master Coach Certified, and it got me thinking about how it was a journey of reconnection to myself and what I want.
Weight loss is a goal and a challenge that can grow you, but it needs to be driven from a place of love for ourselves. So today, I’m diverting slightly from our usual format, and I want to give you a few questions you can ask yourselves to really check in, dive deeper, and understand what you truly want and why.
This is Weight Loss Success with Natalie Brown, episode 26.
Welcome to Weight Loss Success with Natalie Brown. If you’re a successful woman who is ready to stop struggling with your weight, you’re in the right place. You’ll learn everything you need to know to lose weight for the last time in bitesize pieces. Here’s your host, certified life and weight coach Natalie Brown.
Hello beautiful people. I want to divert from our regular programming today just a little bit. I made a commitment at the beginning of this podcasting journey that I would make weekly episodes for one year and then reassess the future from there.
So this episode marks the halfway point of this goal I set for myself. This podcast was actually a goal and a project. I have been training to become master coach certified at The Life Coach School for the past year, and as part of my training, I was required to come up with a project that would challenge and ultimately grow me of course, and this podcast is that project.
I just recently received the message that I had been anticipating and looking forward to and working toward, and that is that I am officially certified as a master coach. Amazing, amazing.
So naturally, it got me reflecting on the past six months of this podcast project born of love and of hope. And also looking toward the next six months, and of course, I then started thinking about you all and how you’re doing on your path.
It’s so important to stay connected to ourselves and what we want on any journey of change and transformation. And that’s something that I have really gained from this master coach journey is a reconnection to myself and what I want.
So you’re on a weight loss journey of some kind. Otherwise, you probably wouldn’t listen to a podcast called Weight Loss Success, right? 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. Y’all 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 just take this opportunity to just pause. I want you to pause and I want you to check in with yourself. Wherever you are on your journey, ask yourself these 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? And why does that matter to me?
So, so, so much love to each of you wherever you are on your journey. And I will see you soon.
