Body Beautiful Weight-loss 4: Weight & Self Empathy

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP

 

During this weight gain I am appreciative of having the empathy skills based upon years of practicing Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s model of Nonviolent Communication and empathetic listening of self and others.

  • Emotionally & Mentally

Gaining weight I could name my changing  emotional states as thresholds kept expanding all the while understanding what was happening in my environment to contribute to it.  I know that we are always meeting a need in dieting and weight gain.  It is never circumstances beyond our control as though some outside source made me gain weight.  We may have needs that are greater in the movement distracting us from focusing more attention to it. Discovering what this is brings attention to it and the value needs.

How to Loose Weight by creating a Foodie Lifestyle Naturally

Two immediate ways Renee can help you with your weight loss are 

  1.  Coaching Options:
    • Turning intentions into goals
    • Goals Setting & Home Audit and Support
  2.  Food Consciousness Building & Education

Steps to Loosing Weight

  1.  Commit by connecting to intention (separate fitness intention for diet, they are not married and if necessary create a second intention for fitness)
  2.  Foodie Lifestyle assessment to guarantee it’s doable (remember diet extends into the kitchen, fridge, garden and grocer.  It doesn’t extend to the gym or track)
  3.  Choose a diet plan that’s right for you remembering to make it about you and not about the diet.  (Remember that if you choose a trending diet eventually you will go off it and then what? where is the learning integration?)
  4. Get support for keeping your intention and turning them into goals. (Remember a mentor, group or community can  motivate increase incentive to reach your potential)
  5. Acknowledge results with a coach or in a journal.  (Noticing change is the point of mindful awareness and expressing regret or celebrating versus beating yourself up is the new change agent)
