So friday two weeks ago I made an appointment with a Health Coach. I didn't know exactly what it was about, I still don't know exactly what it's about to be honest haha, but I knew I needed help to make the changes I want to make.
I got there and he was not what I was expecting, I was expecting someone older, looking very fit and knowledgeable. He looked much younger than me, VERY skinny and well by him looking so much younger I wondered how much experience he really had in this.
He gave me a big kiss and a bear hug which was a little surprising to me. I liked that he is one of those positive caring people that is always smiling. It was a 50 minute session which we spent talking about me, he wanted me to tell him about myself and the changes I wanted to make.
It was a little difficult for me to open up to him because I didn't know him at all, but he said I had to be completely honest for him to be able to help me. Frankly most of the time I am way too honest and I tend to share too much information about myself anyways, so I thought, ok whatever, one more person that knows what I am going through.
I told him I wanted to change and I knew how but I just couldn't push myself to do it. I had a lot of anxiety, although it had decreased recently but I still wasn't eating what I am supposed to. Excercise? Less than cero. Less than I have ever done in my entire life.
Nothing extraordinary about the appointment, except the fact that he asked me to write everything down for a week and read a book. EVERYTHING I put in my mouth, water, gum, everything. He asked me to be completely honest.
This was my face. But of course I told him I would be completely honest, what is the point of me lying? I am there for a reason, to make changes.
Anyways, I have found myself pretty inspired to make changes in my eating habits, most of all because someone is going to be checking me I guess, I really don't know. I also feel motivated because I really really want to change. I have alwasy wanted to, but I guess having someone pushing you, gives you determination and motivation.
He asked me how much I wanted to weigh and I told him I wanted to weigh 165 pounds, and knew that according to my height I had to weigh less but that I thought I would feel very happy with that weight.
He told me that weight doesn't have to be a certaing weight, it has to be either on the lowest or on the highest part of the healthy BMI. He said he looked really skinny, but he was on the lowest part of the healthy BMI, but that is where he felt best, that is the weight he likes and enjoys. That made a lot of sense to me and I really liked that.
Anyways, upt to now it has been the best desition I have made in a while and I am sure it will have a big impact in my life. Looking forward to the positive changes this will bring!
