    • Before you even think about the practical matters of how to lose weight, and the nutritional factors that go with it, these are the sorts of questions it is essential to ask yourself – and answer fully, and if necessary on paper.

      1)What new difficulty will arise when I lose weight. Will I encounter a problem that lay behind a valid need for the protective barrier of fat?

      2)What old pain or trauma have I neglected to work through or heal? How often do I eat to avoid the feelings associated with old issues?

      3)If there is one thing in my past that I most want to avoid, what would it be?

      4)What uncomfortable feelings do I avoid the most – specifically naming the feelings. How often do I use food to numb or change my feelings?

      5)How comfortable will I be with the new thinner me?

      6)Do I appreciate all the things I can do and I am capable of doing? Do I appreciate my own uniqueness as an individual?

      7)Do I understand the importance of being my own best friend, and irrespective of religion, understand the message of love thy neighbour AS THYSELF?

      8)Do I pay attention to my feelings, listen to them and try to understand what they are telling me of value?

      9)Am I comfortable openly expressing my feelings to others or do I hide my true feelings for fear of rejection, adverse reaction or not being loved? Am I sensitive to the feelings of others?

      Those who have worked step by step on their emotions, their feelings, their behavior, their outcomes will have a full and satisfying life and they will have a healthy level of self esteem. So they will not have a problem in saying 'I am me and I am proud to be me' and stand out from the herd. They won't permit others to dictate their thoughts and feelings, they won't permit others to prevent them from living a full and happy life, and they won't permit others to put them in a nice safe box where that risky business of life is excluded.

      I truly believe solve the emotional side of weight is as important as the actual losing of the weight.  How did you get  here in the first place....figure that out and any system can work for you.

      What do you believe?  Do you think the things you hide under fat are more than just your hip bones?  tongue out
