Love your Body: Lose the Weight

*Love your Body: Lose the Weight is transformational weight loss programme. The programme is delivered through a 1.5-day small-group intensive Zoom workshop with 12 weeks of post-workshop on-line group support. It’s for anyone who identifies as an emotional eater and also for anyone who wants to create a sustainable, healthy relationship with food and/or their body * 

When the world turned topsy-turvy in March 2020, many people got in touch with me about my transformational weight loss programme, the Thigh-High Boot Camp. They wanted to take the opportunity that lockdown offered to work through their issues with food and their body once and for all. They asked if I could take the programme on-line : and that’s exactly what I did! The programme returned in September 2020 in a new 12-week format, with its home in both Zoom and a private Facebook group.

It went so well (and was such a life-affirming experience in such an uncertain time, with wonderful and deep connections made between everyone involved) that I’m running it again in February 2021. If you want to break free from the emotional hold that food has over you, enjoy a healthy and respectful relationship with your body and (this is a biggie 🙂 ) learn to trust the informed choices you make about how to attain and maintain vibrant and vital health, I really hope you’ll consider joining the growing and super supportive Love your Body: Lose the Weight community!

My Approach
You can get the full low-down on my approach over on my weight loss website here, but everything you need to know about the 12-week 2021 programme is right here on this page 🙂 If you’ve never worked with me before, here are the headlines:

*It’s not an exercise programme* (Errr… but you might find yourself wanting to move 😉 I mean, the kind of moving that is predicated on your being fully in your body, enjoying its full physical capabilities. )
*It’s not a diet* (Mmm … and you might find yourself enjoying your new appetite for all sorts of things 😉 )
*It’s a psychological approach which works to break down unhelpful cognitive, emotional and behavioural patterns* (Yeah … and you might really enjoy the freedom that comes with breaking into the full possibility of who you really are 😉 )
*It helps you to develop the expertise you need to make choices that are right for you, both now and in the longer term* (That’s right … there’s only one real guru when it comes to the subject of you – and that’s YOU 😉  There’s so much information out there about ‘the best way to eat’ and ‘the best way to exercise’ that it can make your head spin! Imagine navigating all that information with confidence and being able to make informed, solid, sustainable choices that are aligned with who you are and what you stand for…. Sounds good, right? 🙂 )
* Its predicated on developing, and using, a range of approaches which will help you to build a solid foundation of self-compassion. (So, when life throws what it throws, you’ll be confident about your ability to self-soothe and respond in more resourceful ways. And, you know what? Even if you find yourself tipping into old patterns, you might be pleasantly surprised at how much more choice you feel you have about stopping those patterns and starting to attend to the deeper needs that are calling for attention.)

How Does it Work?
* It works at the cognitive level by helping you to identify thoughts, attitudes and beliefs about yourself, food and health which are not serving you; and to re-pattern your thoughts, attitudes and beliefs about yourself, food and your health.

* It works at the emotional level by clearing the negative emotions that feed your unhelpful habits and helping you to feel the positive emotions you’d like to be full of more of the time. It works also at this level by clearing the emotions surrounding major significant events in your life that may have been the genesis of the problem – making sure that ghosts from your past don’t haunt your present.

* It works at the behavioural level by helping you to identify triggers to unwanted behaviours (such as cravings and overeating). Once the trigger has been identified, you will learn how to develop new ways of responding that are as automatic as the old response.It works by overcoming old, unhelpful, conditioned patterns and conditioning new ones.

* It works at the physiological level by helping you to be in your body, to enjoy your body and embrace what it can do, and to learn to recognise the difference between emotional and physiological hunger. It works by helping you to be fully present when you are eating – so you can slow down, savour the food and stop when you know you’ve had enough.

Love your Body: Lose the Weight is for you if you want to …
* Feel comfortable in your body.
* Maintain a stable healthy weight in the long term.
* Break free from the hold food has over you.
* Nourish the part of you that has driven your emotional hunger so that you always feel satisfied.
* Establish a relaxed and healthy relationship with food.
* Learn to eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full.
* Look in the mirror and love what you see.
* Feel vibrantly alive to all of life’s possibilities (because you’re no longer waiting to be ‘the right weight’).

Here’s what Cara has to say about her experience of Love your Body: Lose the Weight 2020:

I attended Jane’s Thigh-High Boot Camp  and it was life-changing – not only with the weight that fell away but the real me started emerging, and thanks to Jane’s amazing talent, intuition and knowledge, this has rippled out into all areas of my life. Jane has the ability to make you feel instantly appreciated and at ease whilst gently moving you toward your outcome – an awesome ability. I would recommend the Thigh-High Boot Camp to anyone who wishes to reconnect with themselves in a very unique way.” Jenifer Lord,  International Trainer, Mind Coach, Mentor and Speaker.
