They’re something all of us have experienced over the years.
Whether it’s not following a dream career, missing out on the trip of a lifetime, or wishing you had been able to say that final goodbye, regrets can be truly hard to move on from.
As we explore in this episode, our regrets and disappointments in life can not only be difficult to get over, they can end up massively influencing every area of our lives – including our relationship with weight and food.
Think of it this way: regrets and disappointments are a burden. They hold us back mentally and emotionally, and keep us stuck in the past.
While we may not be consciously aware of them, our regrets can be a heavy weight – and we can end up associating that emotional weight with any physical weight we may be carrying.
As you’ll hear in this episode, Marc David works with 60-year old Mardeen around her desire to lose 7 pounds. Mardeen has already lost some weight, and would love to lose a little more.
Like so many of us, one of the key beliefs Mardeen holds is that she’ll feel lighter once she’s lost the weight.
But as Marc explores with Mardeen, it will be difficult to feel lighter so long as her lost dreams and past regrets continue to loom. For Mardeen, the dreams she never realized – losing the chance to have another child after an unplanned hysterectomy, and not pursuing her lifelong desire of becoming a professional artist – have become a kind of emotional weight.
And as long as the emotional weight isn’t addressed, no amount of physical weight loss will give Mardeen the deeper experience of lightness she truly desires.
So please tune into this episode, where we explore the important topic of life's regrets and disappointments, why it’s so necessary to honor and release them – and how doing so can give us the peace and freedom we’re looking for, and ultimately support our weight loss and fitness goals.
