Who here made New Year’s resolutions? Who here didn’t stick to them? 💭
It is impossible to change your whole life overnight. We tend to give up completely after one slip up, this isn’t the way to success. Slip ups and tumbles along the way are expected! We are human, we get things wrong, we fall off track but what is important is not giving up completely. Let’s make February a month of positivity and achievements 🙌
Sometimes the strongest food cravings hit when you're at your weakest point emotionally.
Do you eat when you're worried, bored, or lonely? Do you snack in front of the TV at the end of a stressful day? 😒
Recognizing your emotional eating triggers can make all the difference in your weight-loss efforts. If you eat when you're:
⚠️ Stressed – find healthier ways to calm yourself. Try yoga, meditation, or soaking in a hot bath. ⚠️ Low on energy – find other mid-afternoon pick-me-ups. Try walking around the block, listening to energizing music, or taking a short nap. ⚠️ Lonely or bored – reach out to others instead of reaching for the refrigerator. Call a friend who makes you laugh, take your dog for a walk, or go to the library, mall, or park—anywhere there're people.
Your weight loss journey is a marathon, not a sprint. You've got to learn to deal with things day by day.
Each journey is individual, and is made up of small steps. If you pile on too much at once, you might stumble under the pressure, but if you slowly implement changes in your lifestyle, you can transfrom yourself in a way that will last forever. It's all about learning, teaching ourselves to be better day by day until we have become absolute experts. Experts in our favourite subject, ourselves 💚
Diets 🚫 Going hungry 🚫 Being full and feeling great 👍
Leaving yourself feeling hungry and empty isn’t a satisfying or effective way to lose weight. Many people who join Show Me Fit have been on lifelong diets where a calorie deficit is the name of the game - and then they join Show Me Fit and are surprised at how well they can eat while still having a filling, varied, TASTY diet!
The Show Me Fit way is three big square meals a day - no diets, no snacking but still no compromising. If you don’t believe how well it works - just ask our members!
Fear of failure - it's a tricky one. So many people struggle with it, and it's understandable. Weight loss can be daunting! 😰
🧠 The thing is, you CAN'T fail. Really. You’re not aiming for perfection here. You’re simply aiming to be a little bit better than you were before. Take the pressure off your shoulders. You’re not attempting weight loss to become a fashion model. You just want to be a little bit better - that should be your focus. If you just focus on small improvements, bit by bit, that will get you to where you want to be without putting yourself under huge pressure.
📝 If you slip up, that's not failure either! You learn from it - then it's a lesson. You were trying to be better, and a bit of it didn’t work. Analyse it - why didn’t it work? What can you do to change it? Work it out, solve the problem and then get back on it!
We're all on this journey together. Please share any tips or words of motivation you have for the Show Me Fit community below - someone really might need to hear it today!
This is so right. I haven’t lost what I wanted to at the start, only about a third of what I intended but I am still on my journey and I have still lived life, with holidays, cruises and outings. I am not as strict as some because my weight is perhaps not as high, but what I’ve learned is if I put on a few pounds on holiday it’s ok, and I always look forward to my SMF meals when I get back and the weight comes off again. When you go on a ‘diet’ you have an intended end date when you start eating all the stuff you feel you missed out on, so guess what the weight piles back on. SMF is a way of eating you can do for life! So to cut out whole food groups for six months and feel deprived is not sustainable. I love SMF, will never go back to an unhealthy life or mindset, I’ve changed how I view food and what I put in my body and I know however long it takes I will get to where I eventually want to be, and I’ve discovered so many things I now like that I previously turned my nose up at😀🥰
"Being good most of the time is good enough" is the ShowMe.Fit slogan!

What is stopping you? The idea of a healthier life? The idea of a more organised like? The idea of saving money of your food bill? The idea of being part of a group of like minded individuals? Smashing your goals? Lose the weight you have wanted to? Feeling better in yourself?
We can help you with all of these things, do not let anything hold you back! 💚
Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that healthy food is boring and fattening food is somehow fun. This isn’t true!
We got overweight because we developed bad behaviours, but behaviours can change. It can be a long, difficult process and you might long for the way things used to be - but stick with it. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you’re missing out while you’re changing into the person you want to be. You’re not, you’re in a good place. Other people are missing out.

It’s about changing attitudes to food and owning your behaviour. A lot of the way we eat is habit or brain washing. Once we recognise it we can start the process of change. For some it will easy, for some it’ll be more difficult. But it’s a learning process and we all learn at different rates xx
