Weight has been heavy on my mind lately. I make a good start on a new diet, do well, then for some reason or another get derailed. I’m not really sure why.
I took a test when I was on Weight Watchers (I think the second time) and it told me that the reason I don’t stick with losing weight is that I don’t believe I can. Why do I continue to hold this belief? I have no idea. In my head I know it’s possible. I’ve done it before. I also know what I have to do. Why do I lack the willpower? Am I just lazy?
I know I’m taking a risk posting about this again. I know some of my dear readers will write to me and suggest the GAPS diet, the Paleo diet, going gluten free, going vegan, or whatever has worked for them or what they’ve read online. I’m pretty sure that the underlying issue is about more than just which diet to follow, however. So I’m excited to be taking part in a teleseminar titled “Empower Your Eating: Six Weeks to a Healthier, Happier Body Image.”
I met the instructor, Laura Burkett, at one of our local Slow Food Meetings. She received her training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and has also studied at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. In exchange for posting about my experience, she is letting me take the seminar, and I’d love it if you would consider joining me.
Here’s the schedule:
1-hour Weekly Tele-classes June 5th-July 10th
Class #1: Tuesday, June 5th 7:00pm ET – What’s Your Body Image Style?
Class #2: Tuesday, June 12th 7:00pm ET – Culture and Collective Healing
Class #3: Tuesday, June 19th 700:00pm ET – Nutrition, Eating, and The Sacred
Class #4: Tuesday, June 26th 7:00pm ET – The Pleasure Principle
Class #5: Tuesday, July 3rd 7:00pm ET – Embodiment and Creating the Life you Desire
Class #6: Tuesday, July 10th 7:00pm ET – Claiming your Throne
The classes will be recorded if you can’t attend. The program cost is only $240, and I’m looking forward to the following benefits:
- Weight Loss, naturally as a result of a healthier relationship with food
- Clarity and empowerment around the nemesis we call food
- Reclaiming your “sexy” and feeling vibrant and beautiful
- More confidence in your own skin
- Self-care and Self-love becoming non-negotiable
- Learning what showing up in your own body really feels like
I can’t wait to share with you how this impacts my life!
