• The simple analogy that explains why it seems like you’re not getting anywhere – even when you are
• The critical ingredients you need to stay on track in times of doubt
• Specific strategies on creating a flexible, enjoyable and effective weight loss vehicle that is right for you
Tell me… If you were driving to Sydney from Brisbane and you’ve been driving all day, would you turn back when it got to night time just because you couldn’t tell where you were going, because you can only see as far as the highlights would allow you to?
Well, no, you keep on going and travel until you arrive at your destination, wouldn’t you?
But most people, when they’re trying to lose weight, they do exactly that – and they are constantly turning back from Sydney to Brisbane, from Brisbane to Sydney. And they end up being stuck somewhere in between purely because they don’t have a little bit of faith to keep them on the right track.
The 7th deadliest sin that I want to talk to you about dieting that you probably didn’t even realize you’re already making is you’re suffering from Can’t-Wait-To-Get-There-Itis, or impatience, or just a little bit of good ol’ fashioned faith.
Most people are so caught up with the desperation of arriving in Sydney, of achieving their ideal body or attaining their ideal goal weight, that they are willing to sacrifice how comfortable their journey is in the process – because they figure that “Once I’m there, I’m there, I can just maintain it.”
It doesn’t happen like that because physical transformations aren’t permanent.
So whilst you’re trying to get Sydney, imagine you got a really uncomfortable seat or you don’t like who you’re traveling with.
Basically, as soon as you don’t have the immediate gratification of getting some instant recognition that you’re doing the work (i.e. the numbers on the scales are going down), as soon as night falls and you’re not getting the instant feedback that you’re on the right path, you can’t bear the pain of being in this uncomfortable journey, this uncomfortable car for any longer, so you do turn back.
And some people are so desperate to get there, it’s like if you just eat one little thing that’s off track on your diet, it’s like getting a flat tire – but because you got one flat tire, you decide slash all the tires and have a big massive binge fest.
That’s how tweaked down are ideas are around dieting.
Okay. So how do you fix this?
Well, it’s a little something something called faith. Faith that you’re even heading in the right direction, faith that you’re in the right car, faith that you even want to end up in Sydney.
Now, there are a million and one ways to lose weight – and the majority aren’t for you.
Firstly, you need to be travelling with conviction that you’ve chosen the right vehicle to get you to Sydney, or the right diet or exercise program to get you to your dream body.
It really has to be something that you’re going to enjoy because you’re going to be spending a lot of time travelling.
So check it all out. Check that you’re going to be able to trust this vehicle, that it feels right to you, it feels like it’s going to be comfortable – because you’re going to have to make sure you can do this long term.
Check in with your intuition. Be quiet for a moment and just ask yourself: Does this feel right?
If it feels right in your gut – not your stomach but your gut – and if you can see yourself doing this kind of part of weight loss journey to a healthy lifestyle, if you can see yourself doing that long-term, then you’re in the right track.
Then you need to be able to give yourself permission to be flexible. You can make decisions for yourself, by yourself, because you are the expert in your own body.
If it doesn’t feel right, it’s okay if you can ditch that car and get on the bus. That’s your prerogative.
As long as you know you’re still travelling with conviction that you’re heading in the right direction, it’s okay regardless of how long it takes.
Ask a trusted source for directions if you need help.
If someone has travelled the path to Sydney before you and you like their style and you can relate to them, seek them out as a mentor that you can trust – somebody whose story sounds like yours and has achieved what you want to achieve – and get a map from them so you can follow and implement it on your own terms.
Even if you stop for a rest when they didn’t at all, go on a detour while they didn’t, you are still making progress to your dream body destination.
Have someone expecting your arrival. You really need accountability so that you don’t just dilly-dally along the way.
Knowing that someone is expecting you to deliver what you said you were going to do is just the kick in the pants you need to make sure you get there in the end.
The only way you can actually make sure that you’re going to get to the destination is to make sure you’re having a happy, comfortable journey. You are completely in control of it.

I’ve passed the big 4-0! I’ve now ‘released’ 48kgs, since the birth of my son 2 years ago. To Kylie, Selina and all my GBQ sisters, you helped me to get out of my own way, so I could coach my inner critic and encourage my cheerleader. I am getting my pre-babies mojo back and am in a better headspace than when I was fighting fit! I feel like GBQ really delivered on the greatest gift, self-love and clarity, and has given me the confidence and conviction to continue my journey! Thank you.
With Kylie’s help I released the hopelessness & anger I was using as an excuse, and have stepped out of my shell with a vengeance! I’m now clear on what I want to do with my life and I’m taking steps towards making it a reality, and in doing so my entire eating habits have changed… the ‘hunger subsided’ & I’ve stuck to my better eating habits and gym workouts easily. It’s been amazing!
Working with Kylie has been life changing. Kylie helped me get back in touch with my own body, taught me how to nourish myself and get my glowing, gorgeous body. She helped me move from self-loathing to self-love. She taught me how to consciously turn down the critical voice and turn up my inner cheerleader. Without a doubt starting with your mindset is the first place to start on your weight loss journey. Lasting results for sure and totally life changing!
What I have gotten out of the course can’t be measured. I glow from the inside out! For the first time in years; I am happy because I am happy! I love myself – I can actually look in a mirror with no self loathing… I love the woman smiling back at me and not just because my body has changed on the outside – I have changed from the inside and it is a reflection!
Everything has really changed, I finally let the girl inside out. I feel like my life has really just started. I’ve had a massive increase in personal power (from zero), sense of possibility, happiness, resilience, CONFIDENCE! Reached my first weight loss goal, I have gone from a size 12 to an 8-10. I love myself and respect myself for the first time, I cannot express how much this has changed me. Thank you does not even cut it.
I have been struggling with my weight and feeling of not being good enough for as long as I can remember…This has changed for me now. I have had more awakenings and realisations and learnings than I thought possible in the past few months. This really is SOOOOO not about the weight. I TOTALLY get that now.
I have loads more energy… I’m eating so well and exercising when I can. With my 1st baby I couldn’t cope with the emotional roller-coaster that is pregnancy. I ate, and ate, and ate non-stop. My head is in such a great place at the moment. I owe it all to Kylie and your Goddess Body Quest program x
