I've dedicated this platform to help fellow busy doctor mums start to prioritise themselves and start making sustainable lifestyle changes. You deserve to feel comfortable and confident in your body.
We as medics are very good at putting everyone and everything before ourselves. We are compassionate, dedicated givers and empaths. But...we sometimes need to give ourselves the space to also receive to uphold our own wellbeing.
So let this slice of the internet be the place that gives you a little of what you need: support, compassion, advice, guidance and community.
Weight loss is a sensitive topic. It means different things for each individual. The desire to feel comfortable, happy and confident in your body is something we should all be able to work towards.
In my experience, for the vast majority of women, weight loss is more than just "slimming down". It's about being able to run after the kids without feeling breathless, it's about feeling confident when you look in the mirror and, for many medics, it's also about giving guidance to your patients that YOU understand yourself.
Dieting, calorie counting, restrictive eating
Instead of focusing on which diet to follow, the headlights need to be beamed on understanding why we do what we do and what is driving us to make certain actions, like eating a whole packet of biscuits in one sitting.
The weight loss industry is obsessed with numbers and weighing, without actually addressing the root cause of what has led you to be in this position in the first place.
My methodology towards weight loss is simple. Understand yourself, your thoughts and your emotions because this is the key to unlocking sustainable, long term weight loss. Yes, I teach nutrition and exercise - but this is just one component. Not the be all, end all.
You are more than capable of taking control of your thoughts, emotions and actions. You just have to make that choice to get back into the driving seat.
