When we believe that reaching a particular weight will result in our living Happily Ever After, a few things might occur:
1. We put our lives on hold
That’s never a great idea. Life is always happening now.
And now. And now. And now.
2. When we reach our goal weight, we ask, “Is that all there is?”
If we put our lives on hold until we reach our goal weight, we often don’t know how to live once we get there. We don’t know how to be happy, satisfied, fully alive, inhabiting NOW on fire.
Because we’ve been practicing being on hold rather than being on fire, we’re often ultimately disappointed once we lose the weight.
When we’re disappointed, what are we apt to do?
Emotionally eat to be more specific.
And then, the weight gain begins again.
Can anyone say, “Very. Painful. Cycle.”
3. We’re disoriented when we realize there is no Finish Line.
We’re so intent on crossing the Finish Line, that we don’t realize there isn’t one.
Instead, we engage in a never-ending search for a Finish Line so that Happily Ever After can begin.
