Some of the responses I’ve received are very clear, which show that the applicant already realizes they are hiding behind the fat.
They share that they are hiding behind the fat by:
- Avoiding dating.
- Having sex with the lights off.
- Standing behind the crowd whenever it’s picture time!
- Posting old photos online, or only their face (or eyeball!).
- Ending relationships due to their food obsessions (food is #1).
- Never going for their dream career because they are too afraid…and then eat to soothe their fears.
- And much more…
However some of the other responses range from “I have no idea” to “What does hiding behind the fat mean?”
A fact that is true for any and all change you may wish to make in your life is that all change is preceded by awareness. Therefore if you aren’t even aware that you are Hiding Behind The Fat then how could you ever take the next step to Stop Hiding Behind The Fat?
Makes sense, doesn’t it!
3 Signs You Are Hiding Behind The Fat
One of the biggest signs you are hiding behind the fat is that you are putting off doing something because of your weight.
This thing you are putting off because of your weight could be anything! And it’s a glaring sign that you are hiding behind the fat.
Some examples of what you might be putting off because you are hiding behind the fat:
- Starting your own business.
- Writing a book.
- Getting on stage, either to sing, act, or speak.
- Opening your own exercise studio.
- Getting married.
- Losing weight!!
FACT: Weight loss is very easy, if you simply DO the healthy action steps that make up a healthy lifestyle. When you are hiding behind the fat though (a symptom of an F.A.T. Mindset) then everything feels hard, and it keeps getting put off.
Another sign that you are hiding behind the fat is that as soon as you take that first step towards the thing that you’ve been putting off, you immediately recoil out of fear and turn to food for comfort.
Now we’re back at the beginning! Which is a very easy pattern to get into and stay in. Just because you’ve practiced it for so long.
A third sign that you are hiding behind the fat is the fact that you always have an excuse. For everything!
You easily come up with excuses for why you aren’t working out five days a week like you said you were going to do. You always have an excuse for why you can’t lose weight, and you even know that it’s your mindset that is the problem and you can’t fix it on your own but you make excuses for why you won’t hire a pro to coach you.
In fact it’s become so easy to make excuses for yourself that you’ve become quite comfortable with your lack of results! But this only makes you feel very very frustrated with yourself.
What makes you feel even more frustrated though, is that there is one area of your life in which you are moving forward, and that is in your work life. Why this fact makes you feel even more frustrated is because you can’t help but ask yourself “Why can I do it here, but I can’t do it with my weight?”
What If I Want to Stop Hiding Behind The Fat?
To Stop Hiding Behind The Fat in the quickest way possible you will need a weight loss mindset. Your mindset is 90% of your success with your weight. Only 10% depends on diet and exercise.
It’s your Mindset that allows you to take action with the diet and exercise! Consistently!
