Top of many people's health goals is weight loss. The problem with this is that this perfectly useful measure of health has been corrupted by the diet and beauty industries, who have injected harsh unrealistic expectations into the mix, along with a nice toxic dose of body shame.

Journaling for this topic:
Write down all the reasons you have to lose weight. Now put them in order of internal importance. For example, if you have written ‘to ease joint pain’ and then ‘to fit into my favourite dress’ then easing joint pain must come before the dress, because it impacts your life on a deeper level. Think health, think ease of movement, think what else you could do that you cannot nowadays.
Now look at the top and bottom reasons and notice if your motivation has shifted. Do you feel any better focusing on the most important item? Who else benefit from you easing this problem?
I would love to know what came top of your list, so please email me info (at)theshiftinside.com
