Why? The Mysterious Nature of [being] Fat.

I stayed up into the wee hours of the night thinking (could you smell the wood burning?) – yes, thinking about the mysterious nature of “being fat.”  You know. WHY, on the one hand, do we really want to lose weight, but on the other hand don’t do what we need to do to have it happen???  WHY, Indeed!

Sometimes when we ask the question WHY, we either get stuck in why – coming up with several plausible reasons as to ‘why,’ or – we shrug our shoulders and say, “I don’t know why.”  Either way, we are not moving forward; we are spinning our wheels.  We are stuck.

Today, how about we discuss (chew on) the WHY of our fat and then … after you know why you are fat, or perhaps come up with a few plausible hypotheses, we can move onto WHAT.  As in – what are you going to do about it?

Why and then what … because without action, there is no movement.

The mysterious nature of FAT.

Yesterday I dared to struggle. Today I dare to win. ~ Bernadette Devlin

Why Stay Fat ???

The primary objective of your unconscious mind is to protect you; to keep you safe.

Therefore, if your unconscious mind received any information early on in life that indicates that keeping that layer of fat might protect you, or that eating could take away your pain, it will come forth and tell you to eat when it feels necessary. Your unconscious mind has quite a bit of control over your eating behavior.

Today, we have an opportunity to explore the reasons that you may want to keep your extra layer of fat.

Could it be that you …

fear your sexual energy
need protection
fear being seen (and perhaps judged)
don’t like attention
have very low self-esteem and feel undeserving
feel that success is for those other lucky folk but not you
believe that permanent fat removal may require you to make a major life change
(i.e., get a divorce, change jobs)
fear that you will lose friends

After you come to terms with the why of it, now you need to ask yourself, “What am I willing to do about it?”

Food for thought from Our Lady of Weight Loss, with you every ounce of the weigh.
