Can you believe that there are only 3 months left in 2015?? Around this time of year, I am often reminded of my work at Jenny Craig as a weight loss consultant. October, November, and December were notoriously slow months because with the holidays coming up, nobody wanted to think about dieting. We sat in the center for hours and twiddled our thumbs and called our MIA clients to leave them voicemails saying, "Hello and how are you and we miss you and come back we're bored."
And then January would come and we would be so busy we didn't have time to eat or breathe. It actually wasn't unheard of for me to work with 28 clients in a single day during the New Year's Resolution season.
So why am I thinking about this and why am I telling you?
I think you know by now my stance on dieting and the weight loss industry, especially as it relates to women. And in case you don't, let me try to summarize: Dieting is BS.
Yeah, that's it in a nutshell.
But seriously, dieting screws with your metabolism and does untold damage to your body and soul. The weight loss industry cares nothing about your health and everything about your money. And women deserve so much better than to constantly be told there is something wrong with us or that we're bad because we ate a cookie.
Isn't it time we stop giving our money to the diet mongers and start supporting the things in our lives that truly feed our souls?
This January, I am launching something that I am so excited about that I haven't wanted to tell anybody. I've been wanting to keep it close to my heart, keep it my little secret until I'm sure I have it all figured out.
Well, I don't have it all figured out. There are still a ton of details to work on. But here's the idea:
I'm creating a self-healing library where women can go to access workbooks, meditations, and workshops, connect with other women on a healing journey, and connect 1:1 with me on a regular basis for support and guidance.
I am working right now on curating all my previous online programs so that they're available in the library. And then I'm going to get started on something that's been brewing in the back of my mind for a long time: an e-course for healing your relationship with your body and food.
So come January, I invite you to consider investing in healing your body rather than continuing to hurt your soul while playing the diet game.
p.s. I want to create as many healing resources for you as I can, and to do that, I need to know what needs healing in your life. Can you take 5 minutes to fill out this survey? Once you're done, you can enter to win a free transformational healing session with me (valued at $300), which can be used for anything that needs healing in your life.
p.p.s. I will always support other men and women who are doing amazing work helping us all to heal our relationships with food. I think Isabel Foxen Duke's Stop Fighting Food class is amazing, and it's a great way to get started on your healing journey now, rather than waiting until January. Imagine if you could experience the holidays without the stress of worrying about your weight? Registration for Stop Fighting Food closes on Thursday so I encourage you to give it a look-see now.
