This assignment will trigger many thoughts; some may be a little painfuland at times sad. Thus, we recommend that you start this journey with your nutritional coach, then sit quietly and journal additionalthoughts that the assignment triggered.
No it was not an apple!This assignment is for the serious minded student, who wants the truth! Are you sick and tired of being sick and fat?
Steps:1. Recognizeiii iiithe first incident that caused you to feel out of control (in your life) (See Footnotes below, to help you with this)
TIP: YOU ARE NOT OUT OF CONTROL. In fact you are a control addict,continually trying to control everything and everybody around you since that first incident you described in Step # 1. This is why your weight stays within a relatively tight limit, for example 230-240 lbs for the past 5 years.
2.Know the truth – the truth we are seeking in this program is how that first incident in step #1 triggered your weight management challenges
3. Act on the truth that you know now. Recognize that food or the food that you eat or don’t eat, controls nothing. It only controls how you will look and no one cares that you control your own fat! By the way, this little mind game will make you sick.
4. Your thoughts… the only other area in your life within 100% of your control. True control comes from knowing that GOD or your “higherpower”, however you refer to it, gave you this power.Have you been using this gift wisely?
One more thing, before you go:“How come every time I try to lose weight I plateau”? Like a polar bear, fat is protection from the elements (life)
When you start to loseweight you get scared.You feel exposed; your protective suit isshrinking
