It wasn’t until I left home for college that I started to gain weight.
It seemed like I was up a pant size and before I knew it, I was a size 28.
I lost the weight through sheer grit and determination and then. . .
I gained it all over again.
I was pre-diabetic, depressed and then I discovered Paleo.
I lost the weight all over again and today I’m a size 16.
I know that for me to have vibrant health, I should be a size 12 but it’s been a struggle to get to this goal.
Heck, I’ve had this goal for the last 4 years and I still am at the same pant size.
However today my pants are loose for the first time and I owe it to two things.
So why are you (and I) not losing weight?
One, I realized that my weight gain has nothing to do with food but the “why” behind why I was overeating and not exercising.
Most people don’t gain weight because they are addicted to food. There are underlying unresolved issues that cause us to overeat and not take the best care of ourselves.
It was safe for me to be this size.
It was safe for me to turn to food to deal with the stress.
It was safe for me to put my self care last on my neverending to do list.
After some devoted prayer, meditation and EFT, I have worked through these issues and am turning a new leaf.
Two, I started to educate myself about how much I should be eating. Please raise your hand if you buy a package of food and think of it as a single serving size. Mr. Bejelly and I jokingly call a full size bag of chips two servings but when you look at the back of the bag, it says 14 servings.
Did you know that 95% of people regain after weight loss?
Did you know that 56% of of people get food portion sizes wrong?
Imagine if you had a tool to help you maintain success after weight loss.
Imagine if you could have a simple system that would give you the correct portion size for each meal? This system would work for any diet – paleo, classic, vegeterian, etc.
Portion Ease is the second solution and I am straight up embarrassed to say that I had no idea that I should be eating so many vegetables a day. Check them out and sign up to learn more about their indigogo and be the first to grab this amazing product!
