As an emotional adult you take full responsibility for your emotions, you do not give away your power to another person. You can’t be “made to feel” some way by another person or event. What the heck does this have to do with weight loss? Well,
- Do you ever eat sweets to feel better or celebrate?
- Do you ever feel like “it’s not fair”?
- Rebel against the very thing you want…like overeating because weight loss is so hard?
- Use food to stay disconnected or checked out?
- Do you blame your weight on other people or events?
Do any of these remind you of the thoughts in your head?
If you answered YES, good for you.
Good for acknowledging that you have something that can be changed.
These are the little sneaky thoughts that keep us locked in this horrible yo-yo struggle with our weight.
They are insidious, and worse than that, they are so habitual and well grained thoughts in our minds that do their damage without our even noticing.
The first step is noticing.
And then begins the work of deciding if those thoughts are serving us.
Because if they are not, we, as adults, get to decide what we would rather think.
Now I am not saying this is a simple process. Well it’s not a hard process, it just takes practice and repetition.
And just like the journey of a thousand mile begins with the first step, so begins the process of losing the excess weight.
You Just Have to Take the First Step.
