A client reached out to me the other day.
She said, “my family just does not support my new way of eating. Making this shift is so hard sometimes I don’t know why I am doing it.”
I told her the only support she really needs is her own!
The people in your life probably won't support you making a change at first.
They only know the old you, not the new you!
But you know the new you, you believe in that person and your ability to become that person... And that is what’s really important.

What about self-love because you are doing something awesome for yourself?
What about gratitude for your family that loves you?
Those are all feelings to try on when you are feeling the challenge, when you are feeling down.

I challenge you to do the hard thing today- invest in yourself, sweat, go through the pain.
It’s worth it on the other side.
Join the meal prep course and you will definitely give yourself the gift of time and money on the other side!
A lot of people suggest counting in some form or another.
Whether it's calories, points, or macros...
Here's the thing, if you think counting calories is something you will enjoy doing for the rest of your life, then by all means, count away.
What you do now to maintain your health and your weight it should be enjoyable and sustainable for life.
Does counting sound appealing to you? Do you think you'll be able to keep it up long term? Will it be easy to do in many different situations?
If the answer is "no", then look for another tool to help you maintain for the rest of your life.
I suggest you try two things:
