Last night I attended a very interesting presentation evening hosted by the Landmark Forum. Sophie wrote an interesting post about this a while back which you can read if you want to find out more about it as I won't be going into the why and wherefores of the Landmark Forum here.
Anyway, I ended up deciding to register for the course. I've been considering it for some time now but there's always a perfectly reasonable excuse not to and so I put it off, sit on the fence and promise myself that one day...
So, back to Beyond Chocolate. As I walked home last night I thought about all the women out there who, like me, might be sitting on the fence. Women who know that dieting doesn't work, who want to stop overeating more than anything else and yet somehow stay perched on the fence and resist taking the next step.
Are you sitting on the fence? Whether you've been thinking about it for a while or have just discovered us, here's five good reasons why you should jump off and go Beyond Chocolate.
5 Reasons to get off the fence...and go Beyond Chocolate
1. We deliver (where the diets and willpower don't)
It's that simple. What excites us about the work we do with Beyond Chocolate is that it is honest. We aren’t promising magic fixes and immediate transformation. What we deliver, over and over again, and what you will find at the heart of our approach is the possibility of true nourishment, the opportunity to take charge and make decisions about what and how much to eat and when to stop. We give women the tools to discover how they want their relationship with food to be and we show them how to get it. There is an element of magic in that, because when we are willing to take a risk, to go beyond the superficial, beyond the diets and the weight loss, we don’t only find the key to transforming our relationship with food, we transform our lives. What lies Beyond Chocolate is self-confidence, peace of mind and freedom.
2. There's no reason not to
Look hard enough and you will always find a reason why now is not the right time: I can't afford it, I don't have the time, I can't make the dates, I'm not sure if it's really for me, I know this stuff already so will it really make a difference? You can put it off and put it off and stay stuck or make a decision to just do it. You can even dip a toe in and test the waters before you take the plunge. Our membership comes with 1 month FREE trial. Meet other Beyond Chocolaters on the Forum and see what they are saying about it, download an inspiring podcast and listen to Sophie and Audrey's top tips and use the worksheet to start making changes.
3. A different outcome
How many times have you embarked on a new diet or vowed to yourself to stop overeating and have a healthy diet? How many years, how much time and energy have you wasted doing the same thing over and over again? And how many times have you ended up back at square one? You know what they say: if you do what you've always done, you'll get the same results you've always got. If you know that dieting and the 'just get a grip' approaches don't work for you, try something different and give yourself an opportunity to get a different outcome. Put into practice any of the Beyond Chocolate principles and we can guarantee you this: you will be a happier, healthier more balanced person.
4. The proof is in the pudding
Don't take our word for it! We have lots of happy customers who have gone Beyond Chocolate. Be inspired by the success stories on our web site and read more on this blog: How we measure success, How Elly went from hating her body to modelling, Amy's thank you letter, Liz's experience of a workshop and Kerri one month on.
5. A small step...a giant leap
We are big on taking action at Beyond Chocolate. You can think, ponder, debate and weigh up the pros and cons and that alone is unlikely to change your relationship with food and stop you overeating. Very, very unlikely. In fact we may as well be bold and just say it won’t. All change requires action. If you want a different experience it’s up to you to do something different, to take action. You don’t have to try hard, you don’t have to push yourself or force yourself. What you do have to do is take ACTION. One step, and then another and then another.
