Core Need: Contribution

Does your social life always seem to be hindering your health & fitness goals?

Maybe this sounds like you ⤵️

You love hosting get-togethers with your friends and family.

It just makes you feel good to bring everybody together.

Taking your time to prepare a meal out of love to serve to others gives you a sense of purpose.

You love to wine-and-dine people, and you’re always going out to some party, or hosting one yourself.

Some would call you a social butterfly. 🧚‍♂️🧚🧚‍♀️

The hard part about it is, because you’re always socializing over meals…

…it can be difficult not to overeat on a regular basis.

What do you do when your weight-loss goals don’t align with your favorite thing – meeting with friends over food and drinks?

💥 Contribution 💥 is our 3rd Core Need.

When Contribution is your main core need,

You want to impact others outside of yourself in a positive way.

Food can be used to create a sense of contribution, and a desire to bring people together.

I see this a lot with people who love to host parties!

If this resonates for you, it doesn’t mean that you have to give up hosting, or going out for dinners with friends.

It just means that the way in which you’re going about it isn’t currently serving your weight-loss goal.

So, you’ll need to figure out how you can keep up with your social plans, and do it in such a way that doesn’t hinder your health and fitness goals.

It doesn’t have to be hard, it’s just something that you have to be aware of about yourself in order to understand how to make it work FOR you rather than AGAINST you.

The better you know yourself and what drives your behaviors, the better equipped you’ll be to create a plan of action that makes sense for you.
