Most of us think that our weight is the main problem to be solved.
I totally disagree.
When our obsession with our weight is in front and in the center, we cannot focus on any aspect of self-help that is not related to the contraction of our bodies.
I will be kinder to myself as soon as i lose weight.
I will start walking (or go to a yoga class) as soon as i lose weight.
I'll buy quality clothes that fit well. as soon as i lose weight.
I will eat what really feels good in my body as soon as i lose weight.
I will book this holiday as soon as i lose weight.
I will stop starving as soon as i lose weight.
In fact, we neglect our basic needs and desires until we feel that we “deserve” it by losing weight.
It is incredibly useless.
What leads to a healthy body image and long-term healthy behavior is not less weight, but the ability to practice self-help, regardless of your weight.,
If you are wrapped up with hate and shame around your body, you are unlikely to really want to take care of it. At least not for long.
A more useful approach is to focus on feeling the best in the body that you have right now. It starts from the end point – the practice of everyday behavior that you know makes you feel better.
We can not "control" our weight. But we can shift our attention to practicing healthier habits — a much more achievable goal.
Weight loss is simply a likely side effect of healthy behavioral change and consistent self-help.
Starting from a place of kindness and compassion forcing your chances of creating results.
