Starting a journey towards better health and a transformed lifestyle can be daunting, especially when faced with the challenge of breaking old habits and redefining success.
For many women in midlife, the pursuit of weight loss and overall well-being often involves numerous attempts, each met with varying degrees of success.
However, the key lies not in quick fixes but in embracing a sustainable, long-term approach.
One of my clients, Alice, joins me to talk about her weight loss journey after menopause, highlighting the power of the Feminine Freedom Program (FFP) and the mindset shifts that can lead to lasting change.
“I never really felt successful; I never really gained success. I'm thinking most likely, because of the tweaks in lifestyle, I did improve eating habits, but not life-changing habits. So that was really a key.”
The journey begins with realizing that past success attempts lacked the necessary commitment and life-altering habits.
Success wasn't elusive for Alice due to a lack of effort but rather a result of not fully committing to the process.
The turning point for Alice came when a decision was made to make serious changes.
What followed was a profound shift in mindset and a commitment to a program and plan that differed from previous endeavors and yielded tangible results.
"I feel like that sense of 'I can do this' just equips us and strengthens us and directs us and drives us to success. That mindset right there is key.”
Alice found that celebrating small wins and recognizing the journey is not a quick fix became pivotal in embracing this as a lifestyle rather than a temporary solution.
The Feminine Freedom Path emphasizes the importance of mindset, encouraging clients like Alice to stop seeking shortcuts and instead focus on making sustainable choices.
It became clear that success was not about rapid weight loss but about gradual, consistent progress. The journey empowered Alice to make choices, break free from excuses, and build confidence in making healthier decisions.
"And so for me, it was like, okay, if this is going to be a lifestyle, then it's okay if you're only losing a pound in maybe a month, and it's gradually going down, but it's never been like, 'Wow, I can report that this week I lost four pounds.' It just never was that, but the weight has gone down, and the weight has stayed down."
Encouraging others on a similar path, Alice's story becomes a testament to the program's ability to instill a sense of empowerment and confidence in making healthier choices.
As we navigate the complexities of our health journeys, embracing the process, celebrating small wins, and maintaining a positive mindset can pave the way for lasting success.
"Going with the Feminine Freedom Path, you can take the small steps needed to be aware of what are some of the mindsets I carry, what are some of the effects I carry? And the obstacles that are there. And then what do I already have going on that will work to my advantage and recognize some of the things that I already am successful at because we all are."
Alice’s experience with the Feminine Freedom Path has profoundly impacted her mindset and lifestyle.
She finally feels successful at losing weight after menopause.
She took the time and committed to making sustainable lifestyle changes rather than seeking quick fixes.
