The Secret To My “Program”

47_thesecrettomyprogramI recently got two emails asking me the exact same thing, so I thought this was something I should clarify. They both said: Here’s my problem; will your program help me? Here’s the funny thing: My program is no program. My program is to keep you off diet programs. What I’m trying to do is to help you reshape your thinking to where you can lose the weight and keep it off for the rest of your life.

There are some very basic, simple truths, and I’m just going to give them to you now, so you can take them and run with them. One, if you want to lose weight, you have to eat at a calorie deficit. Two, if you prioritize protein in your diet, it makes that whole venture so much easier. And three, make sure you’re getting lots of fruits and vegetables.

And stay off the programs! Get off the shakes; get off the pills; get off all the crazy stuff people are telling you to do. Find something that is sustainable and stick with it. If you have dieted for so long that you can’t take a small deficit off your daily burn, work your way back up by slowly reintroducing calories.

If I burn 2,300 to 2,500 calories a day, I should be able to take 500 to 700 off that and easily lose weight, which is what I’ve been doing. If I have been dieting for so long that I can only eat 1,500 calories and maintain my weight, then I need to actually go in the opposite direction.

If I burn 2,300 to 2,500 calories a day, I should be able to take 500 to 700 off that and easily lose weight, which is what I’ve been doing. If I have been dieting for so long that I can only eat 1,500 calories and maintain my weight, then I need to actually go in the opposite direction.

My program, again, is no program. My program is to help you get past the idea that you need to be on a program to begin with. Take a calorie deficit. Treat yourself well. Move your body in a way that feels good. Eat food that you like. Start to change your whole outlook on this thing. Remember, there’s no point in dropping that 20 pounds for the summer, just to gain it back in the fall. Right? We want to keep this weight off for the rest of your life. I hope that helps answer your questions about the program.

A Message For Humans Only

37_amessageforhumansonlyHello, fellow human beings.

I’m coming to you with a message that I need to hear and need to share, which is that we are all human, which means we all struggle. The reason I’m sharing this is because my husband said to me this week, “Uh-oh, Heather; you didn’t get everything done or you’re having a hard time. That’s OK; you’re human.”

When I heard that when I was a little girl, it really, really bothered me because I didn’t like the idea of being human — being dependent on others, not being able to do everything on my own. What I realized later was that I wasn’t in an environment as a child that allowed for me to make mistakes and learn from them. In a way, even though I was told it was OK to be human, the actions didn’t back that up.

What I have learned is that when we struggle, which we all do, we have to have people, as Brene Brown likes to say, who have earned the right to hear our struggle. I recently shared a five-minute video in the Half Size Me community sharing my struggle, putting it out there.

Community members do it day in and day out. They share their struggle. They support each other. It’s a safe place for me to do that, as well. I’m sharing this with you today because, like I have in the past, I still struggle with feeling that I should be able to do this alone. I think that I shouldn’t be struggling, or that everyone else has got it, why can’t I?

I want to encourage you. Trust the fact that everybody struggles. If right now you’re following somebody or listening to somebody or watching somebody and they never share a struggle, they never seem like there’s a problem ever, I would really question that.

Think about the stereotypical used car salesman. What are they trying to do? Fix whatever is wrong with an automobile in order to get you to buy it. They want you to think it’s fine. But you and I both know there’s probably something wrong with it, and if they would just come out and say it, at least they’d be being honest.

I think that it’s really important to get this message out, that we can all be human, we can all struggle, and we can all lean on each other for support. Here’s the caveat: Make sure the person you’re sharing this with has earned the right to hear your struggle.

Just because somebody’s your family or just because they’ve been your friend doesn’t mean they get it. It doesn’t mean they understand. I just want to make sure you understand that we all do struggle, no matter how long we’ve been on this road of healthy living, and it’s OK. We are all human. We all make mistakes. I’m saying this out loud for me to hear it, just as much as I say it for you.

Please find those people who’ve earned the right to hear and share your struggle and realize that you are just like all of us — human.
