One way to quantum leap your results is to experiment with detaching yourself from believing that you are the sum product of your past events. We all have been conditioned to believe that as a person, you are always affected NOW by the sum effects of your past events and experiences.
When we participate in that past-focused narrative, it limits our perspective as to what we are capable of because we are believing the past limits what is possible NOW.
The story of your past does not have to filter what is possible for you or your weight loss (or anything else you want to achieve.)
When you look at it this way, you can see that if you are attached to the past, then you would also be attached to harsh inner talk as a strategy to overcome the past limitations that we drag with us into our present way of thinking and being.
Self-sabotage happens as a result of thinking we can't be different than who we have believed ourselves to be. You can work with this by noticing that the moment you want to self-sabotage is actually an opportunity to shake off a past-focused narrative and instead change how you see yourself and what you are capable of by deciding to show up differently.
To change something you must be willing to take new actions from a place where the past doesn't govern how you see yourself.
Your coach’s homework for this week is to journal for 5 minutes each day over the next week about how you can unhook your idea about weight loss habits that are based on your past experience as it relates to:
1. Waiting for hunger
2. Stopping at enough
3. Getting in your water
6. Food choices (good versus bed food mentality)
7. Review the limiting stories you wrote about this week and then tell a new one not rooted in a past narrative. Who CAN you be without the attachments to past limits?
