Part 3: So you want to lose weight? Let's chat.
Lyndi doesn't often talk about weight loss, although it's something clients frequently approach her about. The reason? Trying to lose weight often makes you more obsessed with food, making it harder to be healthy. Plus, pursuing weight loss doesn't actually lead to weight loss.However, she isn't against you losing weight. She is against you trying to lose weight.It's a subtle but oh-so-important difference. Weight loss is fine. But don't aim for it. Don’t slay your body, don’t compromise your well-being in order to lose weight.

Part 2: So you want to lose weight? Let's chat.
In this episode, we continue the conversation around the post-baby journey with Lyndi. If you haven't listened to Part 1 yet, we highly recommend starting there to get the full context.Lyndi knows the significance of being open and authentic about her post-baby weight loss experience. She wanted to avoid creating the narrative that the weight will simply "fall" off her without any effort. Because let's face it. It won't. However, she also admitted feeling nervous about discussing this topic in the non-diet world, where conversations around weight are sensitive and complex. Especially if people are on different stages of their own journey in rebuilding their relationships with food and their bodies. Despite the challenges, we know this is an important conversation to continue. Because you can accept your body as it is and also make food and movement choices that will make your body feel great at the same time.
