Don’t take weight loss personally
In my clinic, I point out that the unbalanced behaviours and habits are a reaction to an unbalanced, unmaintainable cycle.
The cycle is created in an attempt to lose weight as quickly as possible.
Even if the cycle is effective short term, it creates unbalanced behaviours long term.
If the person identifies with the unbalanced cycle and judges themselves, they feel shame, guilt, and regret.
The awareness of the unbalanced cycle and how each part feeds on the other is 80% of the solution. The other 20% is re-introducing balanced habits.
