What to Do about Guilt & Shame on weight loss & Motherhood journey.

2nd February 2021
As mothers we feel guilty for not doing enough, getting enough for the children and for taking time for ourselves.
This guilt can manifest into feelings which lead to...
Unnecessary eating, poor choice foods and other deeper damage at a cell level that messes with our gut microbiome.
Furthermore it can impact your motivation to stop yourself from over indulging.

Feeling like this can STOP many from wanting to show up for themselves and hide, resulting in not wanting to do exercise, eat better or anything that you know is good for you.
Then you feel guilty for all of this too, even shame creeps in.
The guilt and shame can consume your mind, then all you seem to focus on is this in the background of your mind.

If you're feeling like this, it's likely to be because your mind is focusing on what you haven't done, what you haven't said, what you shouldn't have eaten, what you haven't achieved etc..
It can feel never ending.
Unless you do something to stop the guilt or at least reduce these feelings, it will continue to run your feelings and very likely your eating habits and other ways you show up for yourself.
This means you'll continue to live in stress mode – which keeps you holding body fat, as stress signals every cell of your body that you're in danger and you need to keep body fat incase there is a famine.
Most of these stress receptors are in the stomach area, hence why we hold more fat here.

So to let go of the guilt and shame, you NEED TO FOCUS on what you ARE doing that you feel is fabulous.
Because where you place your focus is WHERE your POWER is!
And your power is in the things you are doing…
NOT what hasn't happened, not achieved yet or not done with the children.
And this applies to your food and exercise too.
Celebrate the small wins and keep your focus there.
Have a go.
It really works!
