Leaving my job to start Resolution Retreats four years ago was a massive step, and I often struggled with self-doubt. I was giving up everything to pursue this, and leaving the security of a six-figure salary was frightening, but I had done it as a hobby so I had some faith it was going to work out.
Most women who struggle with their weight and health fit within two distinct groups: they either don’t have the knowledge to enable them to improve their health; or they know what they should be doing, but for some reason they just cannot make it stick. The first group needs education. The second group needs to speak with someone who can help them work out what is holding them back – there is something; you just need to find what it is.
Keep it simple, don’t count calories – be aware of portion sizes, use your hand and your fist to measure your portion size.
Aim for progress, not perfection. You don’t have to be perfect to be healthier than you were yesterday, last week, last month or last year.
Think of ‘health’ as a doing word. Do some ‘health’ every day.
