“I think about it from the moment I get up until I go to bed. It makes my already busy life more stressful. I know I need to exercise to undo what I ate so I can lose weight, but exercise makes me feel worse, when I feel worse, I eat more. I am trapped in this deadly triangle.”
This is what one of my clients said in our first coaching session. Can you relate? Your weight consumes your attention, your body is a constant reminder of what you can’t do, and what you should do. Exercise does not feel good for your body right now, but you know you need to do it to lose weight. Your exercise motivation is hijacked by what the scale says, and the whole cycle takes up so much of your brain power, it drains your energy for the rest of your life.
It’s not that calories don’t matter, it’s that the relationship between these three is messing with our heads and how we relate to our bodies, exercise, food, and the scale.
There is a way to break free from the Deadly Triangle and discover how exercise can help you feel more comfortable in your body now, lower stress, and reduce food cravings even when life gets crazy. Click here to learn more about the Exercising WELL program.
