Don’t believe I can change

Hi Brooke, I requested to be coached live this evening but time didn’t allow so I was hoping you could help here!

I’ve been working very hard on learning from you and going through the overeating workshop and it’s amazing material but I have one big problem that’s giving me a lot of resistance and keeping me from applying it all well–I don’t truly believe I can change. This manifests in a lack of commitment to my protocol and other commitments I’ve made to myself. Why bother to skip the milkshake if I was never going to lose the weight and keep it off anyways?

I know this is a deep-seated belief I have and I can find plenty of evidence to support it, but that’s besides the point. The problem is, I can’t find a shred of real evidence that I can change myself. I’ve changed over the course of my life, but never because I decided to. I’ve been a self help junkie for years, trying to make changes and never have. I’ve tried ladder thoughts like “It’s possible that I can change myself” but I don’t even really believe that and it’s too weak anyways to prompt action.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot and this discovery is actually the root of a whole lot of pain for me. I want so much more from myself in every area of my life; I want to start my own business, I want to lose weight, but I just plain want to be able to grow. I feel like the only thing that’s keeping me from growing…is the fact that I don’t believe I can!

Brooke, you have done so much for me already, but I think if you help me unlock this door, I will be absolutely unstoppable. Please, please help!
