WE ALL KNOW DIETS DON'T WORK
We start. We feel great. We are all in.
An unexpected event, a late-night, an illness, a hard day.
We fall off the wagon!
We give all our control to the diet and when it fails, we take no responsibility.
Food is your best friend but also your worst enemy.
We keep suffering. We blame ourselves for not being strong enough or good enough.
We think nothing will work and give in to just being this way forever.
I KNOW YOUR STRUGGLES.
I am a reformed binge eater who obsessed over food and obsessed over my body image.
I have finally lost the extra weight off my body and have kept it off!
BUT THE BEST NEWS
I have also lost the proverbial weight of dieting and self-hatred off my shoulders.
I have quit obsessing and have learned to love and respect my body and the amazing person I am.
My life has changed because I chose to put myself first.
I have chosen to think differently from the old me. This is what I used to think;
I am fat and disgusting.
Nothing will change so I might as well eat all my favourite things.
It is too hard to stick to a diet because I have a family/husband/busy life.
I love food.
My body is ruined after having my children.
My weight defines me as a person.
WOW! I mean, no wonder I was struggling.
I can honestly say I do not think like that anymore. This has changed my life!
What I know is that you will always struggle if you give the diet control.
You have to take back control and I will teach you how.
This is brainpower. Not willpower.
Here are some things I can help with;
Sticking to a food plan
Eating food right for you
Ending bad habits that keep you stuck (eating after dinner, afternoon snacking, eating junk food)
Blaming everything/everyone around you for your weight gain
How to stay on your plan even when you have failed
Loving your body
ARE YOU READY?
What people are saying
"In just a few short months of working with Prue, I have experienced what I can only describe as "The Next Level Personal and Professional Growth".
Prue has helped me understand my core values and how I was incongruently leading to habits that were not serving me. I am so grateful our paths crossed and my life will never be the same again."
"I completed the Ace Your Weight course and met the most incredible group of women. It showed me that I was not alone in my struggles to shed the extra kilograms. Over the course of the program, I learnt not only to gain control over what I was eating but also to control my emotions.
For me, this program has been about so much more than weight loss and I decided to continue working with Prue to get to the root of my overeating.
I've since lost 15 kilograms and plan to keep working with Prue until I reach my goal of 25 kilograms lost... something I now know is completely possible.
This isn't a diet, it is a lifestyle and mindset change."
All my adult life I have struggled with my weight. I've done everything, every fad, diet, program, plan... I've accepted that this is who I am, a 'big girl'. I have loathed my body, myself, my weakness.
I knew the theory of weight loss, calories in versus calories out, so why couldn't I just do it?
Four months ago an opportunity popped up in my news feed, Ace your weight. I went along full of hopes and wishes. By the time I finished the course the hopes were replaced by commitments, the wishes replaced by skills.
I am happier, healthier and well on my way to the weight loss goal I never dared dreamed of before.
I now have my head in the game and what was once impossible is now a choice and I have chosen me!!
Today’s the day; minus 15kg
What a journey!!
This is the most weight that I have ever lost and it has been the easiest lifestyle change that I have ever done!
Who would have thought all those weeks ago that we’d be saying weight loss is easy; the old me would have gone "good job" go and eat some food, but the me now is happy to not eat food and find enjoyment in the world around me.
To everyone having a good day, enjoy! To anyone who is struggling today, it’s only temporary #YouCanDoHardThings
