Weight = Wait

Close your eyes in a quiet place and breathe deeply. Focus on your excess weight and silently ask it: “Why are you with me? What purpose are you serving? What am I waiting for?”

Listen to the answer, which may surprise you. Most likely, the excess weight will tell you that it’s trying to protect you from something.

Ask the excess weight: “What are you trying to protect me from?”

Say to the excess weight: “Thank you for your offer to protect me. I appreciate your help. From now on, I will protect myself without your help. You are now free to leave in a peaceful and healthful way.”

You will feel lighter after this conversation, because you’ll no longer carry anger about the excess weight. You will have compassion for yourself and the weight.

Notice how your appetite shifts to more healthful foods, and how you feel more motivated to exercise. Notice how you begin to have the courage and strength to stand up for and protect yourself in healthful ways. The excess weight will gently fall away because you no longer need it for your protection. Welcome to your slimmer self!
