DON'T GET BITTEN BY THE ALLIGATOR: Keep your weight off for good with these 8 early warning signs

  1. 1. Avoid the Alligator! : 8 signs to watch for before you REGAIN the weight Michelle Edmonds, M.A., M.Ed. Sr. Nutritionist| Executive Director Serenity Weight Loss and Detoxification Program From the Book: Detox Your Mind or the Fat Will Come Back, release 2014 FB/serenityweightloss serenityweightloss.ning.com
  2. 2. NATURE ALWAYS PROVIDES A WARNING, including for weight regain
  3. 3. ~Nothing Just Happens~ This slide discusses a neglected, but important topic: The relapse signs that occur BEFORE significant weight returns. Tip: Serenity believes this is why people feel weight loss does not last. It is because you have not been provided a checklist of the early warning signs that you are about to be eaten by the alligator
  4. 4. #1 You start searching for exceptions You notice your family, friends, co-workers are not doing what you do, seemingly without the consequences. You begin developing a mental file of all the things people are saying about YOUR weight loss and their theories about how weight loss really should be done, even though they have not done it themselves. You feel awkward nearly all the time Tip: Stick to this TRUTH ~To be healthy you must eat healthy Period.
  5. 5. #2 You avoid reporting ~ your coach has begun chasing you (this is the same as missing or arriving late for a live meeting) Tip: Usually described as “I’ve just been busy”
  6. 6. #3 Irritation: You start wrangling* with your coach, your sponsor, your co-workers, your spouse, heck, everyone! Tip:You are really arguing with yourself Only you know how much you have been sabotaging your good results or how much you have been thinking of doing so. Wrangling: To obtain by persistent arguing or maneuvering. Source: www.merriam-webster.com/dictionart/wrangle
  7. 7. #4 You keep pushing the envelope, almost manipulating Tip: This comes from recalling how the last time you cheated, nothing happened! Another example is peanuts are legumes or popcporn is a vegetable.
  8. 8. Tip: Sometimes so fast, you can’t keep up with it yourself. #5 Moving target-your weight loss goal changes.
  9. 9. #6 The clock moves, but the time never changes! Tip: You may tell others or yourself that you are plateauing. It is really a self- styled maintenance plan. You have been testing to see how much you can spin the “dial” and still maintain the same “time” (weight). You are really gaining and releasing again in time for reporting day
  10. 10. #7 Hiding Tip: This is probably the most important of all of the relapse signs. It may manifest as threatening to drop out or actually doing so, not referring anyone, “the doctor said” not answering calls, texts or emails. Regardless of the form of hiding It will often be described as simply being “too busy”
  11. 11. #8 You believe none of this applies to you and that you are different Tip: Your focus becomes more about trying to prove your coach wrong, instead of honestly examining your self sabotage
  12. 12. Heed the warning signs and you’ll keep the weight off. The gator is just waiting for you to make the wrong choice
