How the secret to permanent weight loss is thinking about your body in a totally different way....
Why are we so critical of our bodies?
Not only have we become obsessed with food, we have
become obsessed withhaving the perfect body.
We believe, mostly through social media, advertising and conditioning
that the perfect female form is skinny, tall, long legs, flawless skin,
pouting lips and thick glossy hair.
Only very few humans possess bodies like these.
We think if we could just have these skinnier bodies we'd be happy and
life would be perfect.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but if this was the case all skinny people would
be happy and their lives perfect....
and we know that's not true.
Most of them are just as miserable- the funny thing is some of
them are not happy because they're too skinny or starving themselves.
Who knows...it doesn't matter,
but when we lose weight because we think a skinnier body
will make us happy, we've got it all wrong.
We are blaming our body size for our happiness.
Happiness is a feeling and all feelings start with a thought.
Whether we're skinny or fat is irrelevant.
It is how we think about our size that's causing us to feel the way we do.
This is actually good news.
Contrary to popular belief we get to chose what we want to think.
What if we thought about our bodies as a gift?
It was created for us.
To live and breathe.
To allow us to have this human experience.
We had nothing to do with it.
It is just bones, muscles, tissue and organs.
It keeps us alive without our help.
It knows what to do when we're sick.
For lots of us it has produced children.
It is continually breaking down and dealing with all the
bad foods and toxins we stuff into it.
It works so hard for us.
Yet we talk about it so meanly.
If we hate our bodies we don't look after them.
We try and lose weight from a place of self abuse.
We think if we loathe it enough, we will be forced to lose weight.
The opposite it true.
When we hate something we don't nurture or treat it with respect.
Any weight lost from this place will always come back.
We need to start loving our bodies.
How about starting to love it for all it does.
For most of us that have never accepted our bodies this is hard work to do.
Some tips to get started on you;
Find 3 things to love about your body.
Look in the mirror just focus on these.
Think how beautiful they are.
Now remind yourself of all the amazing things your body has done for you.
Being grateful is so important.
Practice coming back into your body and feel from within.
No judgement, just curiosity.
All parts of your body are just that, body parts.
What if you could just see them as that?
How much relief would you feel?
Think about what you do when you love something.
You nurture it, you stand up for it and you treat it with respect.
Your food choices are considered and you would never dream of
constantly stuffing your body with unhealthy foods.
