Are you being kind to yourself?

By | November 3rd, 2010|Habits, Health, Relationships, Weight Loss|

I often work with clients who have issues around food. When I point out that they don't have a weight issue but a 'self-care' issue, something else becomes possible. When did you last do something that deeply nourished you? In our busy world it's easy to put ourselves last and then feel resentful and unfulfilled, but that's not being responsible. Take a look at the different areas of your life.. health relationships career finances home family spirituality Ask yourself,  "where am I not taking care of myself?" Forget waiting for someone else to look after you and start nourishing yourself...now! why? "because you're worth it!!" Do let me know the ways you are being kind to yourself and the difference that [...]

Obesity….what is the answer?

By | March 15th, 2010|Changing Habits, Diets, Weight Loss|

As the number of obese people in the World continues to grow, we need to start to deal with the obesity problem effectively. More and more people are resorting to drastic measures in an attempt to resolve their weight gain. Gastric bands are becoming more widely available, but does it really get to the heart of the matter? Working as I do, with individuals and groups of people who have issues around their weight and body image, I believe that taking drastic measures and opting for surgery, doesn’t really deal with the underlying issues. It’s true that a lot of people lose a large amount of weight after surgery and are able to adapt their eating habits, but others struggle.  Some, [...]

Boiled egg memories …

By | February 15th, 2010|Changing Habits, Weight Loss|

Remember eating boiled eggs with soldiers when you weren't feeling very well? Or sitting round the campfire eating toasted marshmallows that were burning hot and oozing down the stick?  Or tucking into delicious barbequed food on a hot summers day?............We have all sorts of memories and their associated feelings; attached to the things we eat. Probably most of us can remember some happy times spent eating and drinking with family and friends. Sometimes though, because we want to feel those good feelings again, we gravitate towards those same foods, expecting the same experience, only to find that we have other feelings instead, perhaps the ones that aren't so good, like sadness, loneliness, emptiness or guilt, and no amount of chocolate, or [...]

I only have to look at a cream bun …..

By | January 21st, 2010|Changing Habits, Film, law of Attraction, Weight Loss|

I only have to look at a cream bun …… People who say “I eat what ever I want and I never put on weight” are right aren’t they?  So are those who say “I only have to look at a cream bun and it goes straight to my hips” What do you say about yourself and the way you look? Beliefs about ourselves are very powerful indeed, they actually shape our reality. Thinking ‘fat thoughts’ can literally lead to putting on weight or an inability to lose weight.  You see our unconscious mind likes to give us exactly what we think about.  If we are always thinking about what we don’t want e.g. to be  ‘fat’ ,‘unhealthy’, ‘depressed’ or  ‘single’ [...]

By | December 11th, 2009|Changing Habits, Diets, Weight Loss|

‘For decades, companies have been selling “slim” – and Americans have been eating it up.  As CBS News correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi reports, ‘Americans spend about $35 billion a year on weight-loss products.’ Yes, ‘diets’ are big business, ‘Yo-Yo dieters’ go from one diet to the next, hoping that ‘this one will be the answer’.
