Silence is one of the "golden rules" and key principles here at The Losing Coach. It is the first piece of coaching advice I give women. I say, "I love referrals, but I don't need them." Keep what you are doing with losing weight private. Very private. Extremely private. 100% private.
This privacy is going to empower you in ways you can't imagine until you experience it. What you are doing, what you are eating, and your own decisions in everything you do with your diet and your weight is no one else's business. A number of women have been moved to tears in the greatest sense of relief they have ever felt when I tell them to keep it private. Someone has finally given them the respect and honor that a woman transforming her body deserves.
When you finally close down comments from the peanut gallery, you realize that your weight issue on display for the world to see and comment on, has been demoralizing to you as a woman. At the Losing Coach, we protect you from this kind of humiliation by giving you permission to keep this 100% private.
Most other weight loss programs do not encourage you to do this. I do, because I know it will empower you to lose weight. Other weight loss programs want you to tell the world what you are doing, because they are not really about helping you lose weight for good; they are about growing their business. In giving them the benefit of the doubt, perhaps they are just not aware of how powerful it is to keep what you are doing private. Perhaps they don't care about how personal and intimate this journey is for you.
This silence then starts to go both ways. When we silence ourselves from speaking about our diets, we start to also silence the voices we once listened to, that encroach upon our own decision-making skills, from the diet industry. The diet industry has made what is so simple (weight loss) so complicated. The industry has brain-washed people so well, everyone now thinks losing weight is difficult, complicated, and beyond the average person's ability to achieve. When you silence those voices and pay no attention to the latest fad, the complicated plans, and the co-dependency the diet companies want you to buy into, you will begin to find losing weight is rather simple, you will find the power to lose weight you've always dreamed of having is inside of you!
