Weight & Body Image

What is it that caused the weighty thinking in the first place?

It isn’t hard to find a person talking about weight often when they have no excess pounds on their bodies. Until one is willing to fix the root of the excess weight or body image issues, there is little chance that this vicious cycle of weight loss and gain will end. One must begin with the stories in the mind to truly heal and bring balance to the body. I am here to help you discover that you are worthy beyond what the eye can see, you have a value that cannot be measured with scales or measuring tapes and you are good enough just as you are. Come out to “The Middle of Somewhere Ranch” to share your story and start your personalized healing program.

You May Asked Yourself

Chantel is answering some of your questions with compassion

Dieting is deprivation and it doesn’t work. Eventually, you will have enough and “fall off the wagon” First, you must learn to pay attention to your body This means

  1. Listening and tuning into how it feels with certain food choices
  2. Eating mindfully, slow down and chew, really taste each morsel
  3. Stop when satisfied, this is different than being full
  4. Asking am I hungry? Make sure it isn’t some event or feeling that has caused you to rush into the kitchen
  5. Bless your food. Judgment only slows digestion and causes you to overeat.
  1. Join a support group or create one of your own
  2. Hire a coach to keep you on track
  3. Have an accountability buddy to check in with once a week

The best thing you can do for yourself is to have a person, or a group of people, to hold you accountable. Having someone to share your struggles and successes with will keep the motivation.

As a parent, when our child is struggling with seeing themselves as the beautiful person they are it can be tough. The best thing you can do is be a positive role model in this area. Make sure you aren’t modeling negative talk about your own image, or body size. If you are having your own struggle don’t feel bad, just work on your own image so you can be a positive role model in this area. Find out what she loves to do. Enroll her in a class that has a positive effect on her esteem. This can be a wide range of activities from taekwondo, to painting, to rock climbing or horseback riding. As long as it is something that she loves, it will lift her self-image.

Register your daughter for some type of program that will help her discover that she is more than what the eye can see is another step in the right direction. The more your daughter knows who she is the less the outside world can effect her. If you need any help in this area give me a call.
