I was in denial.
I’ve been in the fitness and wellness industry for years now. I’ve gone through dozens of programs, tried MANY nutrition plans and was pretty much thinking, “I know this shit” My results were visible. I felt better, stronger and happier BUT when I was stressed, worried, etc I was guilty of diving into a box of cookies or carton of ice cream. Drinking. Eating LOTS of fried food until my belly felt so full I wanted a nap. I shrugged it off. I was still working out regularly and mindfully eating most of the time, what was the harm?
I couldn’t see the limbo I was putting my body in. I would get super strong, flatter belly and then gain the pounds back in a few weeks. Very small yo-yoing which is what kept me from admitting it for a long time. I had a big ego about what I know about food. I had heard a new nutrition course was coming out, created by a registered dietician and nutritionist and was fully prepared to ignore it. I don’t need that!
Then I started seeing the test group results. Then one of the people in the test group grabbed me and said, “I know all your reasons why not but Wendy, you need to try this. It will change your relationship with food."
My relationship with food? Hmmm. When I thought about food I largely considered it an adversary and the scale the god damn devil. So maybe there was something to what she was saying. Maybe. I was skeptical. Major side-eye skeptical.
I started a private group, The Mindset Movement, and invited some women I loved and trusted to do this with me. We began June 4th. There wasn’t anything in the course I had not heard before BUT and it’s an important BUT - I was seeing results 3 days in. The way it is put together is smart and I LOVE smart. There is a shit ton of content and value crammed in and a fancy water bottle and tracker (I love me some accessories). The women in the group with me can attest this fucking works and it makes food not the enemy. It makes losing weight doable and has completely shifted our brains into thinking of the scale as just a tool. I still have my cocktails and treats. Nothing is off limits but it implements some steps that make all the difference. I can do this the rest of my life and not feel like I am deprived or "dieting".
Guys I am down 14 pounds since day 1. OMFG 14 pounds used to take me 4 months to lose and I would feel like it was really hard and was angry during. Not with this. This has saved me and put me on the path to FINALLY getting to that place where I hit my goal and maintain instead of constantly battling to lose.
Best part? Workouts are extra credit. I do workouts 4 days a week but even the women not doing any are losing. The Mindset Movement is a group open to anyone else who could use a better relationship with food, with their body and needs a community. It’s affordable, it’s life changing, and I could not be more grateful and so HAPPY in my body.
