Hi everyone, I’m Dr. Larina Kase coauthor of Joining the Thin Club and founder of Strength Weight Loss and Wellness (http://www.strengthweightloss.com). I was thrilled to collaborate with Judy Lederman on Joining the Thin Club because as you probably know, most people who go through all of the work to lose weight end up putting it back on. Most books focus on losing weight so I felt there was a real need for a book on how to actually keep it off.
As a psychologist ands success coach, I help people turn knowledge into action. You know that you need to continue eating healthy and exercising, but why don’t you do what you know you should?
There are dozens of reasons that we cover in our book, including:
· Continuing to see yourself as an overweight person.
· Interpreting minor setbacks as total failures.
· Becoming anxious and stressed as you worry that you could regain the weight.
· Neglecting to address emotional eating problems.
· Dining with people who have unhealthy eating habits.
You can have the best weight loss plan in the world but until you address these and other issues, the habits that led to your putting on weight in the first place are likely to continue.
Writing Joining the Thin Club with Judy was wonderful because it was a synergistic experience. By this, I mean that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Judy shared all of her stories and secrets about the journey downscale and I added some research and psychological perspectives. The best part is Judy’s humorous and candid writing style.
I’ll be back from time to time to post tips on this blog to help you become and stay a Thin Club member for life!
Thanks for reading,
