Sometimes you have to choose.
All my clients have their unique challenges but one that comes up often is putting body composition or weight loss in maintenance mode so that we can focus on health.
There is a point where better health = better weight loss.
But then there is a specific category of women where they maybe want to lose just 1/2 to 1 stone or tone up a bit.
They usually have some good exercise and good food habits in place and they start to restrict a little more and maybe up the exercise, push a bit harder.
Before they know it they're working out 6 times a week and dancing with a low calorie diet.
This can send the body into stress mode.
Which often shows up like:
✔️ Not getting the body comp results you are after, feeling increasingly frustrated and obsessive
✔️ Hormonal imbalances; heightened PMS, emotional outbursts, crying over small things or for no reason, hot flashes
✔️ Digestive imbalances; bloating, weird reactions to foods without being able to pinpoint which ones
✔️ Sleep disturbances or feeling unrested after a decent sleep
✔️ Low energy or feeling inappropriately exhausted by the end of the day or week
How do I know?
I've been here too and seen this is pattern in many clients.
And the biggest challenge is the mental work of letting go.
Taking that step back without guilt so you can take care of you.
You may find you naturally do better anyway when you start taking care of your body but you have to be prepared to put weightloss aside to rebalance your body and learn to love you now.
Until you can do this, you will find yourself running in circles again and again.
