What is Self-Awareness and How Does It Fit In When You Need Help Losing Weight?
Posted Jan 04 2011 5:00am
It seems that people in California are smoking a lot less than people in other states. The figures show that for Californians, the percentage of smokers is about 13%, where the rest of the country is about 20%.
The difference seems to be that in California, a great deal of effort is put into raising public awareness of the issues surrounding smoking. This has a very powerful effect.
Raising awareness—might that help you with weight loss as well?
We think so. Awareness—that is, staying self-aware—is one of the essential things that women who are successful weight-losers use. They stop ignoring their own feelings, thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors. And they often tell us that simply by becoming more aware, they become more adept at losing weight.
This is not a flashy, sexy, glam weight-loss tool. It is an inner, quiet, deeper tool. It wouldn’t capture people’s attention by being a flashy headline, it doesn’t suggest marketing ploys, or expensive related products.
