Take The WEIGHT of your body, OFF YOUR MIND.
An Online, 8 -Week Group Program Exploring Your Body, Weight and Mind
with Karen DiMarco
DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
You’ve struggled your whole life with weight issues, eating disorders, yoyo dieting, or bingeing?
You feel lost in the sea of contradictory information about diets, nutrition, what to eat and when to be healthy?
You feel like you’ve been ‘waiting for life to begin’ – putting stuff off until you lose the weight?
You can be horrible to yourself with a harsh, critical internal dialogue?
You’ve tried everything (and I mean EVERYTHING!!) to lose the weight?
You’re exhausted from constantly thinking about how much you eat, the rules of your latest diet, and tracking your exercise?
I SEE YOU. AND I’VE BEEN THERE TOO.
JOIN ME FOR AN 8 -WEEK JOURNEY
…and take the weight of your body off your mind.
Together, we’ll explore the resistance you have to your weight, and ask if this might sit at the heart of your struggle.
In this intimate, online group program we’ll….
- Explain the biology behind the mind-body-weight connection.
- Open you up to a fresh understanding of your mind.
- See the futility of using willpower & the power of thought to control your body.
- Begin to see why it’s not really about weight at all.
It’s not just that Karen knows so much about how the human body really works. It’s that she sees clearly how human experience works and that’s way more powerful. At the outset, what I thought I needed was help to clear out my thinking so that I’d stop having outbursts of ‘emotional eating’ where I’d stuff myself with foods I’d decided I wasn’t allowed to have. If I could stop the ‘monster munch’ episodes, I’d be able to eat super healthy in a consistent way and I’d start to lose weight – so I figured.
What actually happened was way better than that. I got something I hadn’t imagined could happen for me: freedom, trust in myself, and a feeling of spaciousness around the whole issue of weight and food. I have relaxed. Losing weight looks simple. Better still, I no longer hate my body or feel I have to be thin and eat only raw vegan food to be okay. I still want to weigh less but the desperation has gone out of it, for two reasons: Firstly, I experience a sense of well-being about my body and what I eat right now, even before I have lost all the weight. Secondly, I will always know what to do if I want to lose weight, in a way that suits me and that I can easily do.
My whole struggle with food is just melting away. It no longer looks to me like I have to eat a super-strict healthy diet in order to feel okay…There’s much less thinking about food altogether. Bottom line, I notice I am neither forcing strict eating from the ‘good’ list of foods (usually with a sense of miserable deprivation) or stuffing with foods from the ‘bad’ list. There are no good or bad lists any more. I can eat more intuitively, according to what I really want in the moment, and in doing so I am learning to trust my body’s intelligence and to trust myself around food. In other words, I eat more the way a normal slim human eats, and it feels easy and right.
What my Weightless course companions shared as we went along was hugely helpful to me. It settled me down just to see that so many of them had some of the same thinking going on, the same bitch in their heads! Karen is so real, funny, knowledgeable and wise that the time we all spent together was a pleasure. Somehow, during that time, some kind of magic happens where the stuff that looked like problems and stuckness about weight started to lighten up, shift and transform and you come out the other end seeing that you’re really and truly okay. It’s like being released from fat prison! Thank you Karen for showing me that before all the thinking, I truly am weightless.
