The Perfect Quote – for Your Weight Loss Goals
Have you ever come across a quote that describes a key element to what you’re feeling or discovering about yourself? A quote that represents what is needed to achieve your weight loss goals?
Well since on the journey of truly discovering the keys to successful weight release I have stumbled upon a quote that could sum it all up in one simple sentence. Not only does it apply to weight loss, but it applies to everything in life that we have not been able to achieve. It perfectly articulates the event horizon within ourselves and our fear in letting go of old programs that keep us blocked. It encourages us to be brave when we come across those brick walls, and leads us to the place where we can find the sledge hammer.
“In order to access a warrior’s courage, we must explore why we are so committed to our story and what we are afraid will happen if we give it up.” — Debbie Ford
Those seemingly unattainable goals; it could be our food obsessions and weight problems, it could be lack of financial abundance, it could be our repeated failed relationships. Anything really that is within us that we want to break free from.
The key lies in the discovery of what keeps us in our old story and what we are afraid of losing if that story changes.
Mindful eating is very similar to intuitive eating. Intuitive eating is a broader philosophy, according to the Evelyn Tribole, and Elyse Resch, author’s of the Book Intuitive Eating . “It includes physical activity for the sake of feeling good, rejecting the dieting mentality, using nutrition information without judgment, and respecting your body, regardless of how you feel about its shape.” Whereby mindful eating, which is a component of intuitive eating, is a process of purposefully paying attention to the eating experience, not judging yourself in the process.
I have recently adopted the Intuitive eating lifestyle as well as totally embracing mindful eating. Last night I made homemade pizza. Knowing full well that the body’s digestion is the strongest during mid day, I still chose to make the pizza for our evening meal. Our read more
Weight Release vs. Weight Loss
Weight Release vs. Weight Loss. Is there really a difference between the two phrases? Actually there is. Energetically when you use the term loss – it sends messages of sadness. The definition according to Webster’s dictionary is: destruction, ruin. The act of losing a possession, deprivation. The harm or privation resulting from loss or separation. An interesting word used in the formal definition is the word Deprivation. That is exactly how most diets make you feel – deprived; which is one of the reasons why diets fail.
With regards to Law of Attraction, when we lose something, we are energetically searching to get it back.
The definition of Release, on the other hand, is to set free from restraint, confinement, or servitude, also to let go, dismiss. To relieve from something that confines, burdens, or oppresses. To give up in favor of another.
The most interesting definition for “release” is to relieve from something that confines, burdens or oppresses. Our weight can certainly confine us, oppress us and feel like a huge burden that we carry on our shoulders, as well as on our hips and thighs.
How is Your Weight Holding You Back?
When I think about all my years of gaining the same 30 pounds over and over again, and everything that it held me back from, I could just scream! How and What is your weight holding you back from?
For me, my weight issues kept my self esteem and confidence levels low. Every time I would lose weight, I felt terrific, I felt accomplished; only for a year later to step on the scale and see that the weight had found it’s way back on my body. This vicious cycle encouraged that little dark voice inside my head to constantly remind me “I can’t do that!” , ” I am really not a winner”, and “If I can’t maintain the weight loss how do I expect to achieve anything significant in life!”.
It was a rough road. I set my standards low and achieved mediocrity.
This self imposed mediocrity was all due to my self image. My self image took a beating because of my weight. Even when I wasn’t all that heavy, I saw myself as the fat girl. Growing up, my favorite cousin was thin as a rail, my best friend was also very slim, and my sister didn’t have a weight problem at all. I felt like the fat girl who could never really achieve greatness because of how bad she felt about herself.
