As a weight loss coaching company, it's important that we talk regularly about what you can gain through this journey instead of just focusing on the weight you lose. When your head and heart are in the right place, what you can gain is incredibly more important and powerful than any number on the scale.
We get the opportunity to work with incredible women every single day. And the results that they share with us are worth sharing.
Kim McLaughlin is a perfect example of someone who has gained so much more than just a number on the scale.
What is something you're excited about right now?
"Obviously the biggest change is scale. I started at 161 and last week was at 148. The scale has never really mattered to me. I'm fitting into my clothes differently and I really like that.
My self-esteem has gone up a lot too. Not just from appearance, but my coach and I have worked together a lot of self-development."
What have you learned through this process?
"Learning how not to be and asshole to yourself. Appreciate everything my body is capable of and really learning the balance between happy and just coping.
Learning how punishing yourself for eating cookies by starving the next day or working out to burn more calories just isn't healthy."
What impact has this has on your life?
"The biggest impact in my life has been my relationship with my husband.
He has become so supportive and encouraging. He started calorie tracking and working out and said that he was seeing me do so well that he wanted to start too.
But even bigger than that has been our intimacy. I was so closed off and hated the way I looked, I pushed him away. This journey has helped me mentally SO much and we have been closer than every before in the 9 years we have been together. That makes me extremely happy.
Aside from that, I'm learning balance. Not every day has to be perfect. It's okay to over indulge, and it's okay not to punish yourself for it. Just get up the next day and get back to the basics!"
Kim has been working with Coach Elisa for the last 6 months. And needless to say, we're proud of her progress.
