Ep #6: Don’t Let Perfectionism and Self-Sabotage Stop You Losing Weight
After weeks of being amazing with your nutrition and resisting every urge along the way, you have a moment of weakness. It happens to all of us, but how do you react and recover after a blip? Do you tell yourself you’re back to square one and berate yourself, or do you take a deep breath, show yourself compassion, and get straight back on track? What you decide to do in this moment is the make-or-break of your success.
As humans, we experience ups and downs, and sometimes we go off track in pursuit of our health goals. But when you go off the rails, you can go down the route of perfectionism, shame, and self-sabotage, or you can show yourself some compassion, decide what went wrong, and use that information to get back on track.
Going off track with your health goals doesn’t mean you need to start over from square one. This week, I show you how to make empowering moves after you’ve gone off your plan and teach you how to show yourself compassion and understanding instead of falling into the cycle of perfectionism and self-sabotage.
