The Emotional Approach to Weight Loss

As you probably read or seen somewhere many times, the subject and practices of weight loss and weight control can be very emotional and (if allowed) somewhat stressful and controversial because it is vastly misunderstood by the masses and even more so, by those who are unfortunately affected by the problem of its unsightliness.

Overweight people as a group; generally and unfortunately tend to play with the problem of weight loss and its control by the way that they generally approach its correction. They do so, more emotionally and stressfully in the hope of some sort of miracle to happen. Rather than approaching the problem rationally with the commonsense and patience that its cure and control requires, this approach is stressful, repressive and self destructive. More often than not, those results in continued failure and frustration finally destroy their self confidence and the will-power to ever try again.

Weight loss and weight control for the most part is emotionally driven which can be clouded by confusion. This cloud of uncertainty and confusion becomes the catalyst for a choice that is made and is then used as a justification for the possible failures.

Being overweight, fat, obese is no accident it is self-inflicted; it is the result of neglect and a continuance of bad choices, and then from a position of denial they cry out that big is beautiful.

To add to the overall confusion and misunderstanding that generally surrounds the subject of weight control we have an avalanche of articles in the popular press sensationalizing the latest, and always the greatest miracle diet and/or method of weight loss and weight control. They are designed of course to capture the emotions and imaginations of those over weight and emotionally affected people.

Emotions are and always be a big factor in overweight people’s indecision and clouded thoughts. If you take emotional attachments away from it, more than likely those indecisions and clouded thoughts would be redundant in the sense that they are taking a one step forward approach.

People need to make a decision and ask this “Are my emotions affecting my attitudes towards weight loss and weight management?”

Staying true to your true desires and demoting those unwanted emotions can be beneficial to anyone who is struggling with losing weight and managing it.
