A New Way to Make Resolutions

Happy New Year!

As I write this, we are a couple of hours away from saying goodbye to 2020, and looking forward to a blank canvas that is 2021.

Are you making new year’s resolutions?

I am thrilled that for the first time in a few years, I am not making any resolutions around my body, my weight, or anything around food (except to enjoy it immensely).

This is a little uncomfortable to share, but I am willing to be vulnerable here because I don’t want you to make the same mistakes I made… ever again.

These were some of my resolutions in the last three years:

  • In 2017, I had a weight goal: I wanted to achieve the lowest weight as an adult, just to see if I could (I did it). I called it a “project.”
  • In 2018, I had a body fat percentage goal. Likely, this was made because I wanted to “go back” to that weight I achieved in 2017 (I didn’t maintain that weight).
  • In 2019, I went gluten free for the year… this was out of curiosity, but probably also to see if I could also “go back” to that weight I achieved in 2017 (still disappointed that I could not get back there).

Do you see a pattern here?

Have you experienced something similar – making resolutions in the hope that you can manipulate (aka punish yourself) your body via resolutions?

Hindsight is 2020 (haha – that is NOT funny anymore!).

I never intentionally “dieted” before 2017, and now that I am on the other side, I never want to diet again.

What started as a “project” in 2017 became something of a dark cloud hanging over me. I had no idea what was happening when it was happening. I kept punishing myself for not being able to “go back” to what I was able to achieved. I viewed myself as a failure.

Worse of all… I started not enjoying eating/ food/ cooking — some of my favorite things in life!

THIS is what dieting does to our human brain – completely and utterly unnecessary suffering.

Research shows over and over again that dieting is a predictor of weight gain and body dissatisfaction over time.

You may lose weight with a diet, but most people will gain the weight back within a few years, plus some. It is a vicious cycle that does not undo itself until we see what is happening, and find way out.

Let’s stop making resolutions that create more unnecessary suffering.

I want to teach you how I got out of it in my my new free mini course, TRUST YOUR GUT.

For 5-days, I am ready to teach and share with you my experience through what I call my “accidental dieting” saga, and how intuitive & mindful eating is the only thing that helps me out of it.

Intuitive and Mindful Eating are backed by science, powered by mindfulness and grounded in our own innate wisdom. They are the keys to authentic health, my friend.

Let me show you how this “problem” has not been your problem, but a matter of Qi stagnation, a matter of Diet Culture, a matter of finding clarity fro within.

When you realize that it is not YOU, then you can get out of your own way.

Curious?

Sign up for the free mini course, TRUST YOUR GUT. It is totally free and can be taken from anywhere. I hope to you see in the course!

If not, because this stuff does not pertain to you, no worries!

I will see you back here next year when that light at the end of the tunnel is starting to get brighter with each new day!

Here’s to a happy and Healthy New Year (new Era) to you!
