Were you ever on a weight-loss course and quit it? Do you remember your reason for quitting?
You might answer by saying things like, “You had enough.” “You cheated.” “You lost your motivation.” “Your commitment wasn’t strong enough to begin with.” “Now wasn’t the right time.”
Sure, these are all possible reasons for quitting. Can you dig deeper, though? You may have had a more profound personally disturbing reason for quitting your weight-loss regimen.
Here are some deeper reasons:
• You are self-destructive • Don’t want to feel vulnerable having less weight • Afraid of success • Need to be submissive • Always a failure • Can’t stand the feeling of loss that comes from eating less • Weighing too much protects you • Don’t know how to soothe yourself otherwise • Became too anxious
Think about it. What might have been your deeper, personally disturbing reason for quitting the weight-loss process?
