Do you continually tell yourself (and maybe even others) that you want to lose weight, you want to Keep It Off, and you want to do it now…but you don’t?
Do you keep hitting some sort of unseen, internal roadblock so that you never quite get there?
Do you “stick with it” for a few days, maybe even a few weeks, but then “something comes up” and there you are again, right back at square one?
Do you find it frustrating that even though a part of you does want to lose weight (and Keep it Off!), that there’s a stronger part of you that keeps on overeating, avoiding exercise, and eating what you consider to be “all the wrong things”?
Maybe you do lose some weight, but then you stall. Or maybe you’ve even gotten to your goal in the past, but you eventually gained it all back…and then some.
Even though you’ve dearly wanted to, you’ve never finally, once and for all “done it”. Done It means you create your dream body. You drop the fat, you do it with consistent, healthy action that is struggle-free, and you Keep It Off. Without struggle.
What you do know for certain is that it’s always a struggle for you – definitely not effortless – and those roadblocks continue to come up…over and over and over again.
But even more frustrating is that you don’t know exactly what those roadblocks are, those internal blocks that continue to stop you…
Is FEAR Keeping You Fat?
Have you ever considered the possibility that Fear is keeping you fat? That Fear is at the core of those internal roadblocks?
“You are born with only two fears: fear of falling and fear of loud noise. All the rest is learned. And it’s a lot of work!” – Richard Bandler
Yes, plain and simple: Fear could be Keeping You Fat.
Perhaps it does not make sense to you that you would fear “the good stuff”, i.e.: the fit, healthy, sexy body you’d love to live in, and keep on living in (heck, who wants to just lose weight…don’t you want to lose it, and keep it off for life?!). But instead, fear of what that will bring you…
What exactly those fears are that are stopping you, I do not know, since I do not know YOU (unless you are a client of mine who is reading this). What I do know is this: your actions are either originating from a place of love, or from a place of fear. That’s how it is in this life.
What if you were taking action out of a place of love? Would those actions be supportive of the fit, healthy, dream body you would Love to live in? Would those actions be in alignment with love?
If you were acting out of love for yourself, love for your body, and love for food (this means you would have transformed your relationship with food from one of fear, battle, and loathing, to one of love, ease, and appreciation), then would it be simple and easy for you to naturally live as a healthy and fit individual?
Would you feel good if you were taking consistent, healthy actions out of a space of love?
What if you continue to take actions out of fear? Fear of what food will “do” to you, fear of weight gain, fear of always being fat, fear of change, and fear of asking for help.
What if you keep hitting those unseen roadblocks, those inner roadblocks that take you off your path of health and vitality, or maybe they are such strong roadblocks that you struggle to even get on the path!
“The only thing to fear is fear itself.” – Franklin Delano Roosevelt
If you continue to operate out of fear rather than out of love, will you ever be able to maintain your dream body with effortless ease for life? And do it without feeling deprived?
Does constantly worrying about your weight help? And would you say that worry comes from a space of fear, or a space of love? Does worry feel like love?
