The best decision I ever made for weight loss

winter weight loss challenge

I remember thinking “what’s wrong with me, why can’t I stick to this diet?”

When I weighed 100 kilos, I was on a permanent diet roller coaster… moving from one diet to the next. I’d starve myself for the first 2 days of the week, give up by Wednesday and then beat myself up for the rest of the week because I couldn’t stick with it! Only to do it all again the following week.

I remember thinking “what’s wrong with me, why can’t I stick to this diet?” I know now it was the crazy diets I was choosing and I doubt if anyone could have stuck with them!

Those diets left scars that cut deep into my sense of self-worth, and the best decision I ever made was to quit dieting…

More on that in a moment, but first let me reflect on my journey – both what got me started and what I did to stick with it until I reached my goal weight.

I went on my first diet at the age of 13! And my on-going battle with the bulge continued well into my late 30’s – I was desperate to find the easiest way to lose those unwanted kilos that had been so easy to gain…

Annette-Sym-before-photoThe moment that changed everything for me was receiving a photo in the mail. My best friend Kimmy sent a bunch of photos she’d snapped while on holidays with us. Among them was a photo of me walking out of the water, bulging out of my swimsuit at Mooloolaba Beach. When I saw that photo, it was like a slap across the face, a huge reality check.

I cried so hard that day, all my past attempts at dieting had left me feeling like a failure because I was the biggest I’d ever been.

Now, I could have just ripped that photo up, but I didn’t… instead I made the decision to quit dieting and become a healthy person. I noticed that healthy people weren’t caught up in this yo-yo dieting cycle and surely if I acted like a healthy person, I’d have to lose weight!

So, what changed?

The first thing I had to change was my mindset. Once I changed the way I thought about my weight loss, the decision to stop dieting was easier. So, rather than thinking that I was depriving myself of food and missing out on the food I loved… I thought about the food that would make me healthier.

I started looking for healthier ways to include my favourite food. I remember my first big aha when I created my ‘healthy’ lasagne recipe. I lost weight that week and so I started to convert all my old unhealthy favourite recipes into delicious healthy options. {I had no idea it would lead to me creating 8 fabulous cookbooks!}

I worked out how much food I needed to eat and included some exercise into my days and, for the first time in my life, the weight started to come off and stay off.

Was it all smooth sailing? Absolutely not! There were many obstacles I had to face and overcome along the way. But for every challenge, I found a solution, which lead to my weight loss success. I lost 35 kilos in 20 months and have been in my healthy weight range now since 1993.

Fast-forward to 2017 when I decided I really needed to step up and help others who struggle to lose weight and so I created my ‘Symply With You’ mentoring program utilising all my past challenges and solutions to draw on for inspiration.
