Why Physical Transformation is all Interwoven

We can push through so many things physically. So, what does it look like when it comes to transforming our body physically, mentally, emotionally, or even spiritually? Why does it seem like such a daunting task to keep up?

We’ve all tried to make a personal change and then fell off. Why? It’s usually because life got in the way, and we didn’t treat the whole issue. The physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual altogether.

It’s all interwoven.

So, what does physical transformation look like?

Simply put, physical transformation is changing the look of yourself. Some examples are losing fat, building muscle, or even dying your hair. Hopefully, this isn't done through a surgical procedure, but that's a transformation too. Physical transformation is looking like A and afterward looking like Z, but a lot falls between A and Z.

That’s where the physical transformation goes deeper. It's when we realize it's more about the stuff we have going on inside than outside. The mental, emotional, and spiritual components are as important as the physical. So it's all about uncovering what is really holding us back from achieving our physical transformation.

And the physical transformation can also be health-related. If you have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or are pre-diabetic, transforming your outer body can impact your inner body. We don’t see these things, but they are a physical transformation.

It’s all interwoven.

Physical transformation is like an onion. There are so many layers we have to peel back.

So, what leads someone to say they need a physical transformation?

Most people say they saw a picture of themselves and instantly thought, "that's not me." A lot of people, women specifically, realize they don't fit into their wardrobe anymore and want a change. Added to that is feeling awful physically, lacking energy, or not feeling good enough about ourselves to have the desire to go out with friends or on a date. If you think this way, the next step is to ask yourself, when was the last time you looked and felt your best?

And it’s ok if the answer to that question is never. It’s heartbreaking to hear from a trainer’s perspective that someone never felt good about themselves physically, but the goal is to get them to that point and keep them there.

Also, it’s crucial to avoid toxic positivity. This is where we let ourselves go and believe we're healthy at any weight. That’s NOT what physical transformation is about. Physical transformation and body positivity are about loving ourselves while working on becoming our best selves.

An unhealthy lifestyle will catch up with you. Whether it’s a lack of bone density, high blood sugar, a fatty liver, or fat pads on your heart, obesity will eventually catch up with you. Don’t use the word, perfect, because there’s no such thing, especially as we look through the eyes of the thousands of filters on Instagram and TikTok. That’s NOT perfection. We might all be perfectly made, but that doesn’t make us perfect, and that’s not what we should strive for. The balance is what we need.

It's all interwoven.

For example, someone with a ridiculously restrictive diet who works out like crazy but doesn’t change (or heal) the mental or emotional, like their long-term habits on how they view things, doesn’t have staying power. They change the physical right away. It might last a few weeks or months but then goes downhill.

It’s all interwoven.

Classically, this is also seen with people that have bypass surgery or any bariatric surgery. They’re physically changing themselves, but what about the emotional side and the habits? If those things aren't changed, the patterns will slide back to where they were, and they will continue to eat the type of food they were used to eating.

Some people think they can do this in smaller amounts and might even lose weight, but it doesn't mean they're healthy. What about incorporating more nutritious foods or digging deeper to determine if a previous trauma has led to emotional eating? Addressing only the physical transformation is like putting a bandaid over a wound that needs stitches.  What you see on the outside isn’t always what’s happening inside.

It’s all interwoven.

Has physical transformation been challenging for you, or do you feel that addressing the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual is overwhelming?

All the tools you need to transform your body and life are yours if you want them. SO LET’S GO!
