How much time do you spend thinking about what you eat?
And about what you didn’t eat?
How about what you want to eat?
And what you wish you hadn’t?
What about your body?
Wish it were thinner, firmer, smaller?
And let’s not forget the guilt.
How much time do you spend on guilt and regret for things you’ve eaten, for what you weigh, for basically, well, for being you?
Do you spend time thinking about weight you’ve gained?
Weight you haven’t lost?
Weight you wished you had lost?
How about counting?
Do you count points, calories, fat grams or carbs?
Do you search the bookstores for an answer?
Do you spend time wondering what is wrong with you?
Searching the internet for a magic bullet?
And how about the way you torture yourself when you get dressed.
What looks good on a body you wish were different?
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired just writing about all the time we spend thinking about weight, food and our bodies.
What a waste of the life you have!
- You could be finding the love of your life.
- Running a race.
- Writing a killer report for work.
- Starting a business.
- Reading an incredible book.
- Painting a gorgeous picture.
- Listening to kickass music.
- Dancing around your house.
- Bonding with your best girlfriend.
- Loving your kids.
- Writing a book.
- Watching a sunset.
- Taking in a great movie.
All the things you could be doing.
If you could lose your extra weight.
If you could lose the whole problem.
Losing the weight takes care of the symptom.
Losing the whole problem is a permanent fix.
So stop wasting your time.
Stop looking and obsessing and wishing and hating yourself.
Find out why you overeat, and do the work. Make the change at that deep level.
And you will gain enough time to create an incredible life.
Or make the one you already have awesome.
