Despite working as a dietitian who is well educated in knowledge in diet and exercise, my weight has just kept increasing year after year with only minimal and temporary reductions in weight which regained over time. Finally, after addressing my weight through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, I was finally able to reverse this upward trend in my weight and successfully keep the weight off.

Since I started addressing my thoughts and feelings and the way it relates to food, I found that sticking the lifestyle changes easier.

Since starting Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, I have started to understand the impact that both diet and exercise have on my body and most importantly my mind. I have learnt to be aware of how my mind is my biggest barrier to what I eat and drink, and why I make those excuses. I’m also learning not make exercise a priority to balance out what I eat and drink and improve other elements of my health.

After years of being on multiple diets and exercise regimes, this is the best thing I have ever done for myself. Although I have not been perfect this, at least I am finally addressing the root of the problem with CBT.I don’t feel like throwing in the towel which I would have done months ago. I feel great.

As a male, I didn’t want to address my thoughts and feelings but it was the best thing I have ever done. I have never been more stressed at work, or been so time poor and previously I would done some major binge eating. e,g, ( 2 Big Mac burgers, large fries and a litre of Pepsi for lunch followed by a 2 family pizzas for dinner and a whole Garlic Bread) But through CBT, I have learned to control my emotions, recognise my hunger and realise that binge eating isn’t really that fun.

For the first time in my life, I have exercised to release some stress. If my friends hear me saying that, that will not believe it. Previously food would be my stress reliever and my best friend but now I have conquered my emotional eating. My actual energy levels are amazing and I no longer wish to punish my body with “bad” foods. I am certainly redefining my mind, body and health!

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an educational tool that has taught me how to eat for health and exercise for fitness. I am losing weight by my own choices correcting all my bad habits and most importantly, celebrating my good habits.
