It seems to me that in modern society the relationship with food has become a complex one with more and more people no longer enjoying food as a normal source of pleasure and nutrition. 

Many people have ‘disordered eating patterns’ or recognise themselves as emotional eaters which could fall into the category ‘Eating Disorder – not otherwise specified’.

ED-NOS covers those eating behaviours that are not clinical recognised Eating Disorders such as Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating, but include situations where the patient may do some of the following things:

-          Consume food and then exercise extensively or obsessively to burn off the calories they have eaten. 

-          Obsesses about the nutritional content of food so as to remove groups of food from their diet because they are too high in fat or carbohydrates for instances.   

-          Restrict or miss meals so that they can over consume later with either food or alcohol or both and so compensating for the extra calorie intake.

These eating patterns can lead to health issues that are not outwardly apparent as the clients will look fit and healthy and yet they could be doing harmful damage internally to their bodies.

So, I ate a few chips...not the whole bowl!

Week 4

I’m abstinent - but lapsed on Tuesday when confronted by a bowl of chips at the pub quiz - yes in the pub and no alcohol but chips are another thing altogether!

I get the whole Cognitive Behaviour Therapy stuff and know that my thoughts (or voices in my head) mean I eat when I don’t want to, but capturing the moment when ‘sensible’ voice is drowned out by ‘not sensible’ voice is an art form, but I’ll save that for another blog!!

So, I ate a few chips (not the whole bowl)! The world didn’t end.  What I chose to do now is what matters. I could have called myself all the names under the sun and made myself feel wretched and a failure. In such a negative mood, I would have started telling myself ‘I can’t do this’ and stuffed even more food in my face as a comfort. Instead, I listened to ‘sensible’ voice, and told myself ‘a few chips is a few extra calories to burn off but sticking with the Programme is a far better choice than being miserable long term because I’m heavier than I want to be.’

Abstinence is a state of mind; I’m not hungry and I know the LighterLife foodpacks give me all the nutrition I need and very few of those nasty calorie thingies!

Happy to report that the crème egg is still in my handbag ……….. J

The key to permanent weight loss is persistance!

Jo’s (my counsellor) finally figured out how to upload a blog and some time ago I recklessly agreed to ‘help’ ….. so here we go.

Bit about me:  just turned 50, previously lost 10 and a half stone with LighterLife, but I battle to keep my weight under control. After a serious fit of ‘sod it’ late last year, plus medication that didn’t quite agree with me I find myself carrying more than 3 stone of unwanted blubber. Time for action!

So, here I am in week three of abstinence, marvelling at a previously unknown ability to stick to my New Year’s resolution.  Weight loss 9lbs. Target is to stay abstinent for 14 weeks, which should equate to at least three stone, maybe more if I do more exercise (correction: do any exercise!)

Feeling particularly chuffed because I’ve managed to get through ‘danger week’ without giving in to the usual PMs carb cravings. That included resisting nibbles at a team meeting and the lure of my ‘good egg’ award which is, and will remain, in my handbag. I could eat it, but I don’t want to.

I have that ‘clean, detoxed’ feeling you get when you’re in abstinence and my PMS woes were minimal, bloating only. BONUS!

I’ll check in again next week and try to let you know how (and what) I’m thinking.

Huddersfield teenager Katy Bradbury is launching not only one but two businesses in 2013!

 

 

 

My client Katy has set up a dance school called KT Dance and an on-line underwear shop called Frills Lingerie Boutique.                      

 

Katy has been attending dance classes since she was 3 and has always dreamed of owning her own dance school. At 16 Katy completed her teaching qualifications and started teaching for different schools. Now at 19 Katy manages a team of professional dancers “KT Dancers”, who provide showgirl sets and entertainment for corporate events, and has set up her own dance classes in Lindley, Huddersfield. KT Dance provides dance classes for 3 – 15 year olds in Ballet, Tap, Modern and Freestyle.

 

Katy has also set up Frills Lingerie Boutique with best friend Jade Buckley. With an interest for fashion and style Katy decided to use her flair within the lingerie industry. Frills lingerie boutique is aimed at ladies wanting luxurious and affordable underwear. Frills have a Valentine Launch party approaching and Katy has her dance group “KT Dancers” performing a burlesque routine whilst a catwalk show takes place. Last year Katy bought the franchise “Miss Bradford” and organised her first big event with 300 guests attending to watch the 20 contestants and 6 judges.
