Episode 208: Does Thin Equal Happy?
How often have you said these things to yourself?
When I weigh ___, then I’ll be happy.
When I lose ___ pounds, then my relationship will be better.
When my weight gets to this lower point, then I can work on other things.
If you recognize these thoughts, you are in for a challenge today.
You are in a common habit of thinking that your happiness hinges on your weight.
I know we live in a culture where thin is worshipped.
Although I must say that it’s getting better.
And even if you don’t worship thin, you still want to lose weight so you can be a natural eater and lose the drama around food and your weight.
All this is good. But what isn’t so good is you connecting happiness with a number. Because if you believe you can’t be happy until you achieve the magic number, then you are doomed.
It’s like you are telling yourself that you must be miserable until someday in the future when you get to that number.
Think about how that makes you feel.
Awful in the present, right?
And does feeling awful about yourself right now help you lose weight?
Let me think?
It does not.
I have never worked with a woman who successfully learned how to be a natural eater who hated herself all along the journey.
So I hope you open your mind today to the idea that you do not have to hate where you are to change where you are.
You can be more accepting of where you are and yes, still get to your goal. And I can promise that the journey will feel a whole lot better.
