Who is holding you back from losing weight: Conscious vs. Subconscious mind
In your conscious mind you think your natural state of being is thin you, healthy you, confident you, vibrant you. The one who is so happy and energetic.
But for your subconscious mind, a comfortable state is actually another part of you, fat you, part of that might not appear the healthiest and the happiest. For your subconscious mind that’s the comfort zone, that’s where you feel safe, that’s where you can solve all of your issues with food.
As fat you, you can get comfort with food and you don’t have to have an excuse about it.
Think about it, as a thin person, you cannot comfort yourself with food but as a fat person, you can.
As a thin you, you have to deal with your emotional issues in another way. Not by eating them, not by going to the kitchen and eating a full bag of potato chips.
As a thin you, you have to find other ways to deal with your uncomfortable emotions.
And your subconscious mind doesn’t know other ways.
Your subconscious mind knows whenever you feel stressed, bored or lonely you eat
That’s how you overcome discomfort and that is the most important for your subconscious. It wants you safe, it wants you comfortable and it really doesn’t care if you have spear tires on your waist as long as you ‘re avoiding emotional pain.
We want now to send a message to your subconscious mind that it is safe to lose weight.
I will be happy when I lose weight. I will be healthy when I lose weight, I will be safe, I will be comfortable and I will find a way of dealing with my emotions.
fat you vs. thin you
You have this huge battle inside of you – fat vs. thin you, two parts who want different things are fighting for your attention. and really fighting for
One part of you is fat and wants to eat and feel comfortable and another part of you is thin and wants to eat healthy to exercise, be energetic, confident and vibrant.
Two different personalities who want two different things from you.
Dealing with your emotions by eating is much easier than actually facing these emotions.
Who is holding you back from losing weight: You’re two letters away from losing weight
Write two letters.
1. One letter will be from thin you to fat you telling her how she feels, what she wants and how her life would look like if she is in charge.
2. The other letter will be from fat you to thin you telling why she’s still here, what is the message she wants to deliver.
Her message might be: I don’t feel safe when I’m attractive, that’s why I have this fat shield on me to protect me from looks.
The message is – I have emotional issues from my past which I haven’t dealt with.
Recommendation: Meditate, Journal and allow yourself to receive the message.
You’re in control and you’re ultimately deciding which part of you will be incharge.
For most of the people this process will be very difficult, and if you’re one of them know that it’s ok. Tears, resistance, denial,… they are all normal parts of this process.
Remember, the only way to achieve your goals is to do something different than what we’ve been doing till now.
If you want to be a different person you have to be willing to do different things.
Allow yourself to try something different (like writing a letter to you) and, trust me your results will be different.
