Imagine you are going to work and you meet someone who is loosing weight. They look amazing and you are insanely jealous. And then she tells you all about this new lose weight quick diet plan that she is on and you want in. You get all the things you need and you decide to start. . .
I know you’ve done this. Because that is what I’ve done. I’ve told myself that I’m going to wake up tomorrow and be this completely new person, but for today I get to be that person who eats everything out of the cupboards. And just get the euphoria of everything that is going to change later.
This is trauma. Somewhere along the line, you developed trauma. You’ve been taught to repress emotions or avoid emotions, and basically just not regulate your nervous system correctly. And this is where the euphoria of a new diet comes into play. You have reinforced the need to have a problem (aka gaining the weight back) because you are reinforcing the coping mechanism. Your brain would rather focus on controlling your weight than your emotions.
Weight loss is your healing fantasy.
It’s time to look at yourself and ask why you keep running from yourself. Because at the end of the day, you can lose weight physically. And yes, you will feel euphoria in the beginning. But when that dies down, you are still within your body. You need to learn to feel good in it and heal within as well.
I’m not telling you that you can’t lose weight. I want to help you heal and stop the cycle of constant weight loss and weight gain. Instead, let’s heal and lose the weight once instead of over, and over, and over again.
