Behind the Weight Loss Success Story, IS A STORY! There is always a story. That "how'd they do it" story. I enjoy studying marketing. I love to hear the latest marketing gurus. If you listen carefully LONG BEFORE they became popular they were WORKING IT. Their story is, "I started with one post, one follower, one client...(one pound). Then I got up and went for the 2nd post, follower, client (pound)...We see their success and when they share it guess what they're JUST telling you their story of HOW THEY DID IT. Long before I ever said a WORD out loud I was working on consistency and self-awareness and discipline and (dieting skills). Little did I know it would become the backbone of my story!
Now THOSE people are success stories and they are all over the internet marketing their skills! They've got Youtubes and Instagrams and Facebook Lives....(Sound familiar)...But long before they turn on the camera they were working themselves and what they do OUT.
It was almost a YEAR after I started my weight loss journey (this time) that I even looked up and said a word. Nobody knew what I did, how I did it or why I did it. I was SILENT...There was no Find Your Food or anything. It was just me changing my life all by myself.
I grabbed a diet that had always worked before
I always reach for "Atkins/lowcarb" but things had changed in the 8 yrs I'd been away. I'd changed too. I came to the conclusion that my focused needed to be not so much on losing weight, I could do that, but KEEPING THE WEIGHT OFF...I could NOT go back to the good ole foods. I could NOT CONTROL THEM...as I'd obviously gained all 85lbs back and then some!
I Studied the diet this time and planned better for maintenance
This time I was far more "present" and learning and UNDERSTANDING as I went. I committed to a deeper work. I mean, WHY did I turn to food all the time. Why did things go so much BETER on lowcarb/keto than when I was off it? WHY did I feel so great ON but so terrible off lowcarb?
Find Your Food was born and founded
The day I realized that THIS way of eating really CLICKED! I was my best self, I was confident, energized and at a healthy weight...THIS IS MY FOOD! When I eat like this I WIN EVERY DAY!
This is the story BEHIND the story.
