How many more diets will you have to go on to lose weight? How much more money will you spend on weight-loss solutions and how much more willpower will you be able to muster up to lose those extra kilos?
Most diets suggest that excess weight is a problem that can be solved through dieting. Through my experience, however, this could not be further from the truth. Is it possible that it is not about willpower at all? How would you feel if I suggested that weight is not the problem, but rather it is your thinking, your self-image and your self-esteem that have caused your distorted thinking about food, your body or your life?
I know that inside of you is a naturally slim person that existed before your thinking became distorted by the media, social pressures, family problems, neuroses, unforeseen disasters and the natural ups and downs of life.
So what is the solution?
Reach the thin mind inside of you despite what the outward appearances suggests and start from there.
Start living from inside of yourself.
In summary – get to what the REAL issue is and be willing to address your issues and be willing enough to want to change.
This perspective is different from the dieting concept mainly in that it treats the causes of overeating. By understanding the reasons for your overeating or under-eating, you can begin to address what it is that is really disempowering you.
This will require:
Some feel it may be too much to handle, so they continue along the dieter’s path. This is a form of procrastination used to avoid the truth. It may not be the right time in your life right now to face your weight and your life, but I ask you:
When is the right time?
How far along the dieter’s do you have to go, to reach rock bottom?
When is enough more than enough for you?
How much longer can you stand yourself as you are now?
How many more weeks, months and years do you have to go on pretending to yourself, family and friends that you are okay?
Permanent weight loss can be yours if you are willing to at least entertain some simple yet very effective tools, strategies and perspectives. These are all available at your fingertips if you want it. Are you willing to give your permanent weight loss attempts at least one more try?
