What we REALLY mean when we say, "I want to lose weight."Feb 28, 2022
When you peel back the layers behind the phrase "I want to lose weight".. most times you'll find that it has very little to do with the actual weight.
What you do find, however, are our core needs that we'd like to be met.
We'd like to be more confident, more accepted, seen/heard and wanted. And these are the very things that are promised to us if, and only if, we lose weight.
But what you may have found is that you've spent a lot of your time, energy, and money seeking various weight loss methods... and you still find yourself unhappy. 🤷♀️
I know that was true in my personal experience. Even at my 'best' physically, I had the WORST body image.. and struggled with severe body dysmorphia. I would pick myself apart in the mirror every chance I got. I didn't feel worthy enough, I didn't feel happier, and I wasn't any more confident. It felt like a bust.
If you're seeking some sort of weight loss, I encourage you to check-in to see if there are any unmet needs that could be driving this goal. Can you begin working to meet these needs while honoring your weight loss goal?
🤍 I'm so glad you're here.
