It is completely understandable to have weight-loss goals given the dieting culture and thin/fit-obsessed society that we live in today. There is so much pressure to be a particular body size and this is often perpetuated by family, friends, social media and even our medical communities. It’s important to understand that no specific weight will bring ideal health and happiness. Weight is impacted by so many factors, such as genetics, hormones, age, medications… most of which are out of our control.
By putting so much pressure on our diet to change our appearance, we often lose touch with what foods truly make us feel the best. After seeing how many people struggle with negative body image and disordered eating, I vowed to do better by my clients and support them in promoting their overall health and well-being, rather than focusing on the number on the scale, calories, points, macros, or any other dieting rules. Bodies come in all shapes and sizes and this should be celebrated. As a Health at Every Size® advocate, I truly believe that we can promote health and well-being at any size.
You may wonder how we would measure progress without using weight. Instead, we will focus on how you feel, your energy levels, your bowel movements, the overall balance and variety of your diet, your mindset around food, and more to assess if your eating patterns are truly promoting your overall health. It is important to note that improvements in eating habits may result in weight going down, staying the same, or increasing, and since each body is so unique, we will not be able to predict how your individual body will respond. By shifting the focus away from weight and towards health, we can get back in tune with your body, improve body image, learn what foods make you feel the best, and develop a much more positive relationship with food so you can get back to living your life to the fullest.
