Letting Go and Weight Loss – The Connection

The Overall Story
I had a client who was really trying hard to lose weight. She counted calories. She had tried all of the most popular weight loss programs out there. She was tired, ragged, and worn out in her attempt to find something that worked. Every program she tried – in the long run, just didn’t work.

A couple of weight loss programs worked at first, but then – after a month or two – she just gained the weight right back. And with some of the programs, she not only gained what she had loss right back, she gained even more weight. Sheesh! She was frustrated to no end.

One of the reasons for her inability to lose weight was because of her mindset. In her minds eye, she saw herself having challenges. She never created an image of herself – getting thinner. She had no vision of herself losing the weight she wanted. She did not even have an image of her being successful in the process – in any way. The vision she had was of her struggling to lose weight. She saw herself not losing weight. She had no clear vision of how she would look after losing weight. THEREFORE, the decisions that she made, subconsciously, were centered around NOT losing weight and failing in the weight loss programs that she tried. This was her vision.

Through a coached visioning exercise – she was able to create a NEW vision of herself. One that allowed her to, in her mind’s eye, see herself succeeding. In her vision she was

  • thinner
  • happy
  • stress free
  • eating what she wanted
  • eating when she wanted
  • more attractive and appealing to her husband (he could not keep his hands off her)
  • was a source of inspiration to her friends and family
  • felt like the queen weight loss expert

We used a picture from her past in the visioning exercise. Afterward she posted copies of the picture – in her house, car, office, bathroom, on the fridge and oven doors, and by the door going out to the garage. We had to work hard at her not hating the pictures, but loving them.

Sometimes we get angry at pictures from the past that remind us of what we DO NOT HAVE. That anger creates blockage to getting what we want. Its best to love that part of your past. LET GO OF THE ANGER.

LOVE who you are today, by embracing you were yesterday.
