Weight loss is not impossible, and it does not have to be painful! Yes, it is not easy. Yes, it takes hard work and self-discipline! But these can be accomplished with enjoyment in the midst. Weight loss will be the most successful when you take your time, gain self-understanding, find the middle ground, allow leniency with your plan, and make true and consistent changes within yourself and in your daily life. Such changes simplify the process, allow for focus on other important elements of life, reduce the obsession with weight, and lead to lasting change over time naturally. Until we change our psychology around weight loss, and our lifestyles in general, we will struggle to lose the weight – or struggle to keep it off long term.*

Research consistently shows the more frequent contact individuals have with healthy information the better their success. Please come back daily for a variety of information, tips, inspiration, and motivation related to the psychology behind healthy living. I will also provide a glimpse into my life and how I stay successful; as although the journey is easier once the weight is off, the psychology behind those behaviors is always there. I too must continue to be self-aware and use these same tips, exercises, and strategies to stay where I have worked so hard to get.

I hope my knowledge and experience can help you find a strategy that works!

Although I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and am practicing full-time, I am not providing psychological services on this site. Here, I will provide you with information, including my personal and clinical opinion on matters related to psychology and weight loss. Understand that this is not the only opinion, nor am I the sole expert on psychology and weight loss. I cannot guarantee your weight loss success, but I truly hope to help you along the way! If you are experiencing significant emotional distress, or if the things learned on this site make you think you need further help on your journey, please consult with a therapist, counselor, psychologist, or physician to help you. Many people need more help than what can be provided with self-help type material, and that’s okay!
