I rely on revelation a great deal when I am coaching. I am always bringing something to the table to be looked at. I quietly share my story and truth, letting you pick through it...I trust revelation will come. I totally believe that if you SEE it, you will be changed by what you see. Revelation comes often quietly and sometimes harshly. Yet,once you see, it's yours!
When I started off on my weight loss journey and sought to somehow try and get my life back, I came to a huge moment of revelation. "I can't go back to those controlling foods again"
You see, I'd been to the Weight loss party before
I've lost big weight before (over 80lbs) and... I'd let it all slip back through my fingers because I was certain "this time I can handle carbs and sugars again, I can moderate them. Everything in moderation, right?" Certain I could have it all, I went back to the foods that were controlling. I got it ALL, alright, all the weight back!!!
Sugars and Starches ran the show
30 months ago, I was in a pretty desperate place, not only was I obese and miserable, but I was severely depressed and with drawn. I had become isolated, hiding in my house, too tired to do anything but go to my job and come back home. When I started my weight loss journey I only did it for my cousin who needed a diet buddy. I can diet, that's the easy part! Keeping weight off is boring. I always end up back where I started, up to my eyeballs in substances I cannot control.
Then a light bulb went off
I can't go back this time...I remember so clearly seeing this truth. I've got to burn the bridge! I've got to accept that certain foods are not only bad for me, but I CANNOT CONTROL THEM. At the core of my personal success is this reality and the work of acceptance!
It was a revealed truth. I can't go back. I remember how quietly it creeped in. Nobody saw it but me. This truth invited me to embrace and accept it. I began a work of acceptance. My eyes were wide open. Truth took hold and HOLDS ME TOGETHER!
