Bronwyn Fletcher, creator of weighting for happiness

Hey there!  I'm Bronwyn Fletcher, the creator of the Weighting for Happiness Project.  I'd like to take a minute and tell you a bit about myself and how this Project came to be.

Firstly, I developed this Project to contribute a missing and unknown piece in the weight loss puzzle. My unique perspective on the complexity of a weight problem comes from my background in systems thinking and behavioural economics.  Also, as a registered nurse and midwife with experience in women's health, I incorporate the additional challenges that pregnancy, post-partum, and menopause can bring to a woman’s weight struggle.

Over the years, I've spoken with over a thousand women about their weight, dieting and their inability to stop returning to their pre-diet weight. These women were smart and competent. Information was not the problem. They knew how to lose weight, and many were very successful at it. What they couldn’t figure out was how to stop their lost weight returning. Many described being blindsided by their weight regain. It was as though they didn’t notice they were regaining the weight until it was too late.

​In systems thinking terms, this is a classic description of an eating system. These systems occur when we treat the symptoms of a problem, without knowing the real issue needing to be solved.

Combining my expertise in systems thinking and women's health, I have developed tools and a pathway to uncover the deeper cause of excess weight. Along with providing education and guidance, my mission is to disconnect shame from every weight conversation.

I hope you can join me.

Regards,

Bronwyn

My qualifications and experience

Registered Nurse and Midwife 

BA ANU (Human Sciences)

I was a nurse and midwife, involved in health and education promotion promotions specialising in intensive coronary care which gave insight about how stress impacts body. I’ve had the idea for this project since I was 17 when I treated a woman who was so large she required 2 beds. Her daughter died from Ross river fever and she had retained grief - in the clinical sense of that description.

 

For uni I went to ANU and did ecology which is systems based work and our company, Systems Thinking, we’ve been running for 40 years and use it in our corporate work and applied to things like customer satisfaction, reducing calls to service centres, projections for staffing, succession planning - systems thinking is our core speciality.

This project has grown out of a conversation project that we conducted with over 1500 women looking at their history of weight. 

FOR WOMEN. FOR PEOPLE. FOR YOU.

Why I developed this project.

Based in Systems Thinking, we provide the professional guidance, new tools and a clear pathway to investigate how you became stuck with recycling weight.

We’re systems thinkers, not dieticians, therapists or doctors. We uncover the system causing weight, not how to lose it. Our mission is eliminating blame and shame from the weight conversation. We partner with qualified practitioners committed to women’s health and wellbeing. We work on the premise that every woman has a complex and intelligent eating system creating her recycling weight. We're committed to providing knowledge to all women, not only those who can afford our products. We support projects that remove blockages and enhance the lives of women globally.

Dieting is making your problem worse.

IF DIETING WAS THE ANSWER,
WHAT WAS THE QUESTION?

Revolutionise your relationship with food, your body, and self.

If you’re stuck in a weight loss-regain cycle or can’t lose weight at all, you’ve come to the right place.

We’re here to radically change what you think, know and believe about the cause of your recycling weight.

We offer a missing piece in the weight loss puzzle and a major reframe of the weight debate. Because without something new all you’re left with is the tired old mantra of ‘eat less and move more’. Which can work…. but only temporarily!

Stop your recycling weight pattern.
Get your life back:
no more cycling weight.
Save money, time and feel better.
Spend more time with family.
