I had a wonderful catch-up with a client yesterday, whom we’ll refer to as R to protect her privacy. When R first reached out to me during the summer, she was in a tough spot, feeling stuck and defeated.
She had been grappling with excess weight for a whole year, despite trying various methods to shed those pounds. What made it even more challenging was her constant fear of gaining more weight easily. Her daily life was dominated by a few recurring themes:
- She couldn’t stop overthinking about food.
- Her mind was obsessively fixated on weight loss.
- She was experiencing declining health and body pain.
- Her self-confidence was fading.
- Insecurity about these issues and fears of potential health problems due to her physical condition haunted her.
R is a remarkable individual, exceptionally intelligent, hardworking, and determined. She had excelled academically and in her career as an expat, but now in her 50s, she was grappling with daily disappointment in herself.
This was her reality in the summer, and it had persisted for many months and years.
Since our first conversation, R has undergone remarkable transformations in various aspects of her life. Initially, it was challenging for her to believe in these changes due to years of negative thinking patterns.
While losing a significant amount of weight effortlessly and enjoying a stress-free relationship with food were significant achievements, they were just the beginning of a profound transformation. Her experience of life, opportunities, and situations underwent a dramatic shift.
The speed at which these changes occurred felt surreal to her, but they happened smoothly and naturally. I’ll let you explore the details of her transformation on your own.
Our conversation, which I’ve included below, was filled with valuable insights, even though it may sound like a casual chat between two contented women.
Pay close attention when you hear R exclaiming, “This is what I used to be like!” She was referring to how she felt 20 years ago.
R and I are eager to share the audio of our conversation because we both recognize that the sense of peace, fulfillment, confidence, vitality, and renewed passion for a bigger life that R has achieved are still dreams for countless women facing similar struggles. Some of them may have forgotten that such achievements are within their reach.
If you are at the verge of giving up or giving in, listen to this convo below and feel lit up again.
