In today's world, "weight loss" is such a loaded term, but it doesn't need to be. There is nothing wrong with talking openly and honestly about your weight.
A lot of people might hear that someone wants to lose weight, and immediately think they're doing it to look "hotter." This isn't always the case, and even if it is, good for them. Who are we to judge someone's reasoning for getting healthier?
Most of my clients want to lose weight in order to feel better physically. Some women want to be able to keep up with their young children. Others want to lose weight to accomplish a physical feat, like running a half-marathon or taking up hiking. And some women were told to lose weight by their doctors, for health reasons.
When my clients come to me with this information, I try to help them address these goals. This requires an honest conversation about weight, and where they're at in this moment in time physically AND emotionally. My role as their life coach is not to judge them, but to help them set and achieve realistic goals. We talk about health and wellness goals and some of those discussions are around weight loss.
I ask my clients why they want to lose weight and I try to help them separate weight loss for appearance sake and weight loss to feel better. We also talk about not losing weight and pursuing healthy goals in other ways. Once they've decided what they want to do, I help them get there, without judgment and without criticism.
