There was so much about this course that helped me realize weight loss is about how I perceive myself and how I value myself as a person. It is far more than calorie counting. In fact it isn’t calorie counting at all. It’s about self compassion, thought tracking & recognizing limiting beliefs. It’s about no rules regarding food; no guilt around food. It’s realizing my perfectionism is part of my reason for giving up and failing again. It’s about forming tiny new healthy habits. And it’s about having fun with food. It takes away the necessity for external controls that only work when they are in place. It’s about being mindful. This is all about me and it’s all about being kind to myself.
“I truly enjoyed the Kind Circle program. Each week I was pleasantly surprised with a new perspective on food or exercise, mindfulness and breath. I can’t believe that for 35+ year I have been hating and shaming myself into trying to lose weight. When we first met I told (Dr. Sample) I felt like I had given up on myself. Thank you for providing me with tools and a new way of seeing things so that I can work towards feeling that I am worth it and I am wonderful, just the way I am. This was life changing and applicable in so many areas of my life.”
