“I’ve tried before. I can’t lose it!”
Here is a phrase that is commonly heard in our consultations with people interested and inquiring into our weight loss program. It’s a very common limiting thought. Yet, the simple (blunt) truth is this:
- Maybe you’ve never really known HOW to do it … yet.

- Maybe you’ve never had the proper support … yet.
- Oh, and one more … Maybe you’ve never tried hard enough … yet?
Don’t take that last bullet point the wrong way and get upset or offended.

“I realized that I was no longer a healthy fat person”.
Please, please realize this: there is NO such thing! Obesity IS a health condition. All health care practitioners use a diagnosis coding system known as ICD-10. It stands for the INTERNATIONAL CLASSIFICATION OF DISEASE. A couple years ago the 10th edition was developed. This coding is the system ALL health care practitioners (and insurance companies) use to communicate in the same language about DISEASE and health conditions.Read More
To tolerate is defined in Webster’s Dictionary this way: to endure or put up with.
“Tolerations” are things we allow to exist at less than the desired level; un-wanted habits and results we allow to persist without properly addressing and/or resolving them.
