You can get screened for diabetes and prediabetes. If you have risk factors such as having a family history of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, inactive and overweight. I recommend that anyone over the age of 40 should be screened.
Making changes to our lives can be challenging. 95% of our brain's function is subconscious. Our brains like to be efficient and do the same thing over and over again. This is great when it comes to brushing our teeth, but not so great if that habit is "eat cake when I'm stressed."
The good news is that we can re-write our habits so that they serve us!
"It’s not so much the weight as the feeling fabulous - or not.
I am going on holiday in 12 weeks. I am fat and I certainly don’t feel fabulous! I’m not obese but my belly is a lot more round than I like.
It’s momentum really. I am pretty sure I’ll lose a decent amount of weight before our holiday but getting started is hard and so is keeping going - especially once the big event is over. There’s a good chance I’ll be chubby again next spring lol"
This is such a great question and brings up lots of points to chat about.
It's easy to let the stresses of life overwhelm us. Our lives in modern society are busy and stuffed full of "things to do". We often don't even notice the underlying stress.
Today I want to tell you how I realised that I was in a chronic state of stress and anxiety. I wasn't showing up as the parent, wife or person that I wanted to be.
At times overwhelmed swept over me. Leaving me frustrated and angry.
I snapped at my kids.
I whined at my husband.
I sabotaged myself.
Why would I do that you ask?
Because our brains are wired to be negative. It's easy to get into a spiral of negative thinking.
When you're aware of it, you can stop it and replace it with helpful and positive behaviour.
My journey started when I looked at my family and wanted to create a "harmonious and loving family".
I started by working on myself. Including loving myself and prioritising my own needs.
Today I want to talk about why you should bother to lose weight. Many people want to lose weight to look good or feel confident. These are powerful motivating reasons. But there is one reason that trumps them all. Your health!
One of the women had struggled with weight loss and was now a healthy weight.
Both women had struggled with “the inner critic” and had learnt to accept their bodies.
The second woman accepted her body and described herself as “fat”. She was content with her body and didn’t feel the desire to lose weight.
Both women started their “weight loss journey” by accepting the bodies. They learnt to love themselves. And to approach weight loss from a place of love rather than criticism.
I 100% agree with this philosophy.
We don’t teach our children by shouting at them. We know that...
