Weight loss tip #2

 

Learn to notice the difference between food hunger & emotional hunger

I offer this weight loss tip here as this is one of the big learning points that I work with when helping my clients understand more about how & why they’ve had a weight problem.

It’s essential that you’re able to notice WHERE you’re feeling the feeling that you believe will be addressed by eating.

This’ll mean you’ll begin to become aware as to where in your body you feel hungry, thirsty, tired etc, & where you feel sad, lonely, distressed or similar.

Most times clients discover that once they stop, listen, & feel their feelings they realise that each can appear in different ways & in different locations.

Feel it, play with it, go into it, think about it …

Notice I didn’t say “just go eat something”.

Nope.

Just ‘be’ with that feeling, let it tell you what it needs to tell you & you’ll start to learn more about yourself.

You see, in the past you’ve gone straight for food, rather than listen to what’s really happening, which does nothing for your weight loss plans.

Yes, sometimes it’s simply going to be telling you that you need some food, for nourishment, but other-times it’s going to be bringing up feelings or memories you don’t want & then you’d (usually) by now have grabbed some food & covered those feelings up.

Damped them down, hidden them away, out of sight out of mind.

And that’s not worked out too well for you, has it?

So just let yourself explore, just a teeny-weeny bit of whatever that feeling is, & notice what that’s telling you.

Simply exploring & playing with those hidden feelings & questioning whether you still wish to hold them as beliefs to live by can bring about awesome changes.
