Lying in bed, you wake gradually, slowly becoming more aware of yourself . You recognise that familiar feeling of dread mixed with guilt weighing heavily on your heart. Still groggy, you cast your mind back, combing through the previous day’s experiences as you seek out the source.
Ah yes, now you remember, yesterday was a BAD DAY
It started off innocently enough, with your usual pledge to be good, to resist temptation; that today will finally be the day you’ll keep that promise to yourself.
Breakfast is never a problem, that’s when you’re most motivated and least enticed to stray from your plan. You’re into drinking green smoothies in a jar with a straw these days, you saw it on Instagram.
You get ready for the day and look with disappointment at the softness around your waist line and your extra chin.
You feel the hot surge of anger and disgust rise up your face.
You declare war on your body, you’re off to punish yourself at the gym. “I’ll rip this weight off me if it’s the last thing I do” you mutter through gritted teeth.
Lunchtime comes and you’re still riding the wave of exercise endorphins, “Train Hard Eat Clean” is your mantra, and in your mind you secretly admonish your peers for not eating your “clean” chicken salad.
As the afternoon starts to roll around, the sugar craving train hits you hard. That extra 100 calories you pushed yourself for on the elliptical trainer is coming back with a vengeance as you feel your energy slump.
You’re thinking back to that chicken salad, thinking maybe you should have eaten some bread, or at least a few of those fries. As you start ticking over in your mind what would be a “good” cheat right now, you happen to walk past your reflection in an office window.
Still fat. Still gross.
What’s the point ?
And it’s like you’ve triggered a button, and your body goes into autopilot.

You dull your reality for the moment, with the comfort of the party going on in your mouth.
This. Is. LIVING! you think.
Then that little voice pipes up in your head saying “F*ck it – You’ve ruined it now, let’s go another round!”
You inhale the food, mouthful after mouthful. You’re like a scavenging hyena scouring for your first meal in weeks. Suddenly, you snap out of your time warp, back to reality and see the spoils of your feast.
That’s when the guilt starts to creep in.
In rebellion, you announce to yourself that you’ve decided to give up hating yourself instead!
After all, you don’t need to lose weight for anyone, people love you for you! You celebrate your new found confidence, and continue your splurge into the evening, and relish the wine, and the desert.
Falling asleep on the couch in a food coma and resolving to cover every mirror, and ignore every window you walk past, so you just won’t look at your reflection.
Then that oh-so familiar nasty little voice pipes up.
“Yeah, good idea Fatty ! What about when you can’t stuff your huge arse into your fat pants again? Oh, and don’t forget you can’t run and hide every time someone pulls out a camera.
And you realise…She’s right.
You know you just look like a huge heifer next to all your slim and gorgeous girlfriends. You get up, go to the bathroom and inspect the damage, grabbing your stomach in a handful of fat.
Wobbling it. Screwing up your nose. Sucking in your stomach, using your hands to squash your saddle bag thighs.
Stuff this! I’ll start tomorrow! And as you fall asleep, you’re full of pep talks in your head.
You’re determined to not be that girl – the hot, fat mess who always whinges about her weight, but can never seem to do anything about it.
Lying in bed, you wake gradually, slowly becoming more aware of yourself and as you do you recognise that familiar feeling of dread mixed with guilt weighing heavily on your heart. Still groggy, you cast your mind back, combing through your previous day’s experiences as you seek out the source. Ah yes, now you remember, yesterday was a BAD DAY……

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
