Are you struggling with a weight issue or working with a client who just can’t seem to shift “stubborn” weight?
With weight issues it is always worth exploring the possibility that aspects of fear or insecurity may be lurking beneath the surface. During prolonged periods of stress and insecurity our bodies can lay down extra fat to protect us against perceived threat.
Once again my theory that our bodies are always, always doing the very best they can to support us comes into play. Your fat cells are not there to upset you, they are there to protect you. This is also why our bodies create extra fat during pregnancy, it is there to protect the baby and our vital organs.
Hating the fat cells, waging war on your body or slavishly following a restrictive diet are not going to address the core issue of the weight gain or help shift the weight. If you’ve tried ‘everything’ and nothing has worked, take a look beneath the surface, clear out the fear, let go of the stress and thank those fat cells. Thank them and tell them it is safe for them to be reabsorbed into the whole of you now. Make a start to let go of fear now with our FREE Release, Heal & Transform Fear MP3 Or get over 100 free affirmations to help you heal your relationship with food.
Our relationship with food is intimately connected with how emotionally safe, loved and nourished we feel. An increase in appetite may result from emotional pain, the need to fill that painful, empty place with something. The something you are really looking for is love but in a perceived absence of love you make do with food. A lack of appetite can indicate a desire to retreat from life, nurturing the hurt inside us again indicating a need for love. Not feeling safe can lead you to put on weight and keep it on!
Our relationship with food can be complex. Powerful emotions of enjoyment and guilt get in to the mix. “Expert” advice about what is and is not healthy seems to change daily resulting in confusion and mixed emotions.
Change your thinking, change the way you feel about food, bring peace into the relationship you have with food. Not only will you feel better but your body will respond.
