Fantasy Or Reality? Which One Will You Choose? - Issue #43
November 05, 2013
No one ever lost any weight by wishing and hoping.
Losing weight and overcoming overeating is difficult. Yet, it is amazing how many of us want to believe it should be effortless and easy. Many of us want to believe there is a magic answer out there waiting for us in the form of a new pill, book, surgery, or diet.
Some of us are magical thinkers. We may create vision boards, pray, do visualizations and endlessly repeat affirmations; and while all these things are wonderful tools, we must do our part as well. Some of us believe if we want something badly enough, it will happen, without us having to work for it. That’s magical thinking. Unfortunately, no one ever lost much weight by just wanting it to happen. There is a big difference between wanting something and accomplishing something. The middle ground is where the action and the effort take place.
If we’re magical thinkers, we may also imbue food with magical qualities. Food may be seen as a comforter, protector, source of love, companionship, and good feelings. In order to lose the weight, we are going to have to find other sources of nurturance, and learn new ways of dealing with life, so that we can accept food for what it truly is: fuel for our body and our life.
Am I ready to take the action steps necessary to make my dream a reality?

I am ready to replace fantasy with reality.
Nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels.
I meet my needs in healthy ways.
Eating less allows me to lead a healthier and fuller life.
Each day, my small efforts bring my dream one step closer.
Goals turn my dreams into reality.
Daily, I tap into the river of love that courses through the Universe. This feeds my soul and brings the comfort, protection, and peace that I am seeking in food.
Is emotional eating keeping you from losing weight and living the life you want? Are you ready to get off the diet rollercoaster and master your weight and your life?
If so, you may be a candidate for coaching. Coaching can make the difference between success and failure.
I have found that people who struggle with food and emotional eating are released from that prison once they learn the skills of mindful awareness and mindful eating, emotional self-nurturing, developing a spiritual or meditation practice, and learning to set appropriate limits and goals.
This turns off the urge to overeat and engage in other compulsive behaviors. When you feel better, you eat better! I have walked this path myself, and it has led me to peace and freedom.
The goal of my coaching is to create a lighter, balanced, healthier, nourishing and joy-filled life. You will begin to see results in all areas of your life because How You do Food is How You do Life!®
I coach and mentor people in the areas of: permanent weight loss, food addiction, compulsive, emotional overeating, binge eating recovery, creative self expression, spiritual direction, mindfulness, meditation, self care and stress management, self esteem and body image issues.
Note: My work is spiritually focused, not religious, and fits with any belief system you may have, even agnostic. My work assumes that you have all the wisdom and answers you need inside of you.
What you call this place -- God, intuition, Higher Power, inner wisdom, or true self -- is up to you. I am simply a guide bringing you back to the truths that are already inside of you.
I hope you have enjoyed my newsletter. Drop me a line and let me know how you are doing. I love to hear what's working for you and read about your success stories.
