I know you’re in there: in search of my inner-goddess

Helloooooooooo ….

I can hear a tiny voice from the depths of my Soul a I am meditating. I reach deeper, and then I hear:

Is anybody out there? I’m trapped! Help me!!

At first I am confused, who is this? A little further into the meditation I realise it’s my inner-goddess.

“What’s wrong? How can I help?” I ask.

I’ve been trapped in this body for so long, stop punishing me. Please release me!

So its time. Over the coming months I will be writing about my weight-loss journey, and my quest for better health and vitality.

Now, as you may or may not know, I am a Soul Coach. I guide people on a journey of self-discovery to rediscover the sacredness of their lives, and to uncover their life’s purpose. As a Soul Coach, I’m also certified to deliver Denise Linn’s health and vitality program Unlock the secret Mysteries of Your Body.

So, its about time I put my money where my mouth is – put myself our there, and say to the world: It is time to unleash my inner-babe!

Increasingly I’ve been becoming more and more uncomfortable in my body. I cringe when I see photos of myself, get puffed walking up stairs, and am tired of the aches and pains I get from carrying all this weight around.

The journey began by jumping on the scales. When they didn’t collapse underneath me I peaked down …. OMG … are you ready people … my starting weight is 103.4 kg! Not healthy, seriously not healthy. So aside from coachingn myself through Denise’s health & vitality program, I have sought the help of a great naturopath, who is also helping me on the nutrition side of things.

I’m 156 cm tall (yeah, I’m a shorty), and reasonably small boned. According to Weight Watchers, my healthy weight range is between 49-61 kgs. So here’s my long-term weightloss goal:

To reach 60 kg by the end of 2011. 

There. I said it. It’s out there. I’m going to release 43.4 kg.

Today is Day 2 of a three day carb detox. The aim of the carb detox is to get rid of the sugar cravings. Its hard, but I’m persevering.

I’m drinking 2-3 litres of water each day. Sometimes I think that its not so much the water flushing out the toxins that helps to lose the weight, but all the running to and from the loo!

Oh, and I’m walking each day, usually around 6 km.

Tonight I’m sitting down to do Day 1 of the health and vitality program. My affirmation today is:

 My assessment of my body is not who I am!

Stay tuned to monitor my progress. And of course all constructive encouragement is welcomed.
