I teach pilates classes and have individual core training clients as well as coaching weight loss. My clients are business owners, great moms and dads, attentive partners and community members. I would say ALL of my clients are leaders in their own professions.
The leadership that is often most difficult to present are the habits – the subtle differences in the choices we make. What are your habits? Do you swear under your breath (yes) do you disrespect people you don’t even know? (yes) do you snack mindlessly disrespecting your own digestion? (yes) There are no perfect humans and I’m not suggesting perfection is the goal.
But maybe your leadership could include identifying 3-5 habits that you show your community you do really well. Make your priorities visible. Tell them I’m taking time away from you so I can take care of my body – want to come along?
Weight loss plans are not published if they have never been successful and yet most of the diets out there fail more people than they serve (yes sadly even Fill Your Cup.) The 2 thoughts that determine your success are:
#1) I believe this process can and will work for me.
#2) I am worth the effort.
If those two thoughts ring loudly in your ears every minute of the day, they will become beliefs. When those two thoughts are big, you can feel them in your heart and in your gut. Then your weight loss process will be successful.
When people fail at their plan it is because one (or usually both) of those beliefs are faltering. People failing, have gotten more weak in their belief than their appetite is strong.
Stay strong. Believe in your process. YOU ARE WORTH IT! Fill Your Cup.

On first glance I thought this article would prove delayed gratification or holding hunger longer helps you make better decisions. It talks about that and goes deeper, it says highly sensitive people with a large and accute appetites make the best decisions. So for our purposes it proves that the detailed body awareness of Pilates helps with decision making. For years I have said that Pilates makes a person sensitive enough to know the difference between hunger and empty, (the nuance of appetite) this article explains why. Thanks Rebecca Clyde for finding it!
