Women who are overweight and feel stuck there are sometimes in conflict, although the conflict may not be so obvious to them. A woman may think she really wants to get thin and she just doesn't have enough willpower to do it. But for many women there are two opposing wishes: one to lose the weight and be thin, the other to stay fat.
Investigating such a conflict can be an eye opener. Here's a good way to get in touch with this. Write an argument between the part of you that wants to lose weight and the part of you that wants to stay as you are.
We all tend to cling to what we know and we have a tendency to resist big changes. Recognizing such a tendency in yourself can be part of the solution.
