Stress sabotages weight loss in several ways...
It leads to an increase of cortisol levels in the body. When you’re eating, increased cortisol interferes with your brain’s ability to give you that feeling of satiety that lets you know you have had enough to eat and makes you feel satisfied & full.
So it’s much more likely that you will eat more.
It’s theorized that chronic stress may create chemical changes in your brain that actually reward you for overeating! They reward you with opiate type releases or feelings.
And if you are experiencing chronic stress, or anxiety or tension, that is one heck of a powerful reward. How are you supposed to turn that down?
Over time, continued stress messes up your insulin regulation, so you are much more likely to crave carbs and sweets. Stress also can lead to sleep disturbances, which might mean you won’t get enough sleep, which is also likely to lead to craving carbs and sweets.
The cortisol problem I mentioned creates abdominal fat and then makes your body fight to hold onto it, even if you’re trying to lose weight.
So imagine trying to lose weight, while you are experiencing continued emotional stress, tension or anxiety and therefore, having the problems I just described. Losing weight would be very difficult, and you might not even know why!
This membership is designed to support weight loss by helping you disconnect from your stress, and remove all those ways that stress can sabotage it, by getting you to pause, and to relax. And to do mindfulness techniques & self care practices that counter or prevent it, several times a day, ideally.
Then you have daily tea breaks or rituals that add the physical support that tea offers, like hydration, or lessening cortisol in your body, or antioxidant support, or a sweet treat between or after meals.
Plus, you will have the added benefit of support from an empowered group of women on the same journey you are on, as part of this membership.
Here's a checklist of what I have planned, so far...
You can choose one of two ways to join, at $13/month or $39/quarter and that will be your forever, lowest price.
