Someone recently asked me what was the main thing that kept me going on my emotional eating resolution journey. When I reflected on it, it was my commitment.
I was committed to resolving my emotional eating no matter what – even though I kept hitting walls and rock bottoms for years!
I had a deep desire to move forward in my life, there was a fire moving me forward and I was not going to give up.
I knew deeply that something more was going on. Even though I kept hearing the message from the world that something was wrong with me or my body, deep down I knew there wasn’t. There was something more that I didn’t know.
My intuition kept me going.
My Journey looked crazy…but I was committed 🙂
Honestly, looking back my journey was quite messy.
I would try all the diets and shiny new things and thought it would get me the result. But I soon learned that they all followed the same restrictive pattern. They didn’t direct me back to myself so I’d fail and my motivation would run out.
I tried so many things; diets of course, intense exercise (I had a personal trainer), traditional talk therapy, even a holistic nutritionist and nothing worked.
I hit a rock bottom after trying so many things and so I decided to throw everything out the window, moved to Korea and I did whatever the f*&k I wanted to.
I ate what I wanted to but soon realized I needed a better way. My new found freedom was just me rebelling and I didn’t feel any better. Rock bottom had a new level. When I reached this point I knew there had to be something more.
That’s where my gift of synthesizing information came in. The way my brain works is that after some time it looks back and pulls out what worked and didn’t and starts making a system. So step by step I followed it…and these commitments emerged along with my initial one I mentioned above.
- commit to the deeper internal subconscious work
- commit to ride the waves of discomfort
- commit to changes that felt good and easeful after a few months
- commit to “my healthy” not something external to me
These commitments helped me on my journey. They kept me going when I had no clue what I was doing, but I had a vision for myself. I go into more details in the the video above so check it out.
If you are looking for support and guidance with your commitment so you can navigate the inevitable ups and downs in the emotional eating journey then I’d love to invite you to check out The Emotional Eating Evolution Program and if it resonates apply for one of the complimentary Assessment calls to discuss joining 🙂
