For many people, losing weight and keeping it off can be a major struggle.
But, today I want to share with you an insight that I have gained from having been on my own weight loss healing journey.
It was this one simple distinction, which really helped me to change how I felt about my disempowering and struggling relationship with my weight.
Our challenges are our opportunities.
Instead of "problems" think of your challenges as opportunities. When you view them in this way you can begin to see them as gifts which allow you to discover who we really are...
It strikes me as being highly unlikely that all my hardships and problems were for nothing. When I look back on my own challenges, with the benefit of hindsight, through healing them I have synchronistically been led to somewhere quite magical....Somewhere that I could not have had a chance to experience if I had not had the initial challenge.
I realised my challenges were doorways to someplace new....
So, today please let any struggle you currently have instead of being a drudgery, be a celebration of how amazing you are, and a declaration to the Universe of where you are going.... Rejoice in the journey...
Our soul doesn't care about society's expectations..
It wants us to G-R-O-W and evolve into even better human beings, and that's exactly what we are doing when we transform something in our lives, isn't it? No matter what else is going on in our lives. It is only through our challenges, our problems and our struggles that allow and enable great growth...
So keep growing, and know right now that it is the struggle that enables the caterpillar to transform into the beautiful butterfly.
Without the hardship and the struggle, the butterfly doesn't have the chance to build it's wing muscles. Without the struggle you don't have the opportunity to grow into who you truly are....
So be like the beautiful butterfly, keep shining, be gentle and loving towards yourself and know that the struggle, challenges and difficulties actually bring huge opportunities for growth and new, deeper understandings about life and yourself...
Losing weight is a journey back to yourself.
Losing weight is a journey back to you. It the process of re-connecting back with who you really are.
I encourage you to be kind to yourself when things are hard, and know that this is when you are growing the most. Keep honouring and respecting yourself through the process, and trust that on the other side of the difficult times is everything you have ever wanted - So enjoy the ride!

The other day I was asked this great question.... "I’m new to Yoga and I don’t understand how doing Yoga can help you lose weight – can you explain please? I guess I’m used to hearing doing cardio or weights to lose weight but I can’t understand how doing different poses which you don’t really sweat helps you lose weight."
