What's Eating YOU!

By Gregory Boileau

You'll often hear the expression, "what's eating you"! A question in fact to the obvious, what's wrong? Often times people who struggle with their weight are in some way carrying "baggage". This is controversial I know. Many overweight people will deny that they are feeling unpleasant, while others will openly admit it. I won't generalize and say that every overweight person is uncomfortable, but for those of you who are, this article is for you.

Often times weight gain is attributed to either a physical cause or an emotional cause. If you're suffering from an underlying medical condition that causes weight gain then it can be diagnosed and the appropriate steps can be taken to rectify the problem. However, what if the cause is due to an emotional event. Shame for example can be highly destructive.

Every person has suffered through external events that have caused emotional internalization. While some are able to deal with it productively and move on, others suffer. They ruminate intensively and let negative energy build within them. As they fight this negative energy and try to keep it down, they look for comfort. For the overweight person their comfort is usually found in food. If you're an emotional eater you know, or maybe you don't know, what it feels like. You get that pit in your stomach, and your thoughts start to torture you, "no one will ever love me, look at me", "I ate a chocolate bar, I mine as well eat another I've failed again", or "you're a failure, unworthy, pathetic human being...why do you even try"!!!

Whatever your thoughts, whatever you're feeling, you're probably trying to mask the hurt with food. Some emotional eaters have gotten so good that they don't even recognize that they're doing it anymore. It's just part of who they are! Don't let this happen to you.

Help yourself today

If you're an emotional eater you need to learn to recognize your thoughts and what they are saying. When you can do that you can start to label what you're telling yourself. If you're telling yourself that you are unworthy, or you're an embarrassment, then question it. Don't let yourself get away with it.

After you become aware of your thoughts, and you begin to question them, start to evaluate the origin of why you are talking to yourself that way. This may take awhile, but take the time to try and uncover it. Maybe, it was something your mother or father said to you when you were younger, or maybe it was a traumatic event that happened to you, or to someone you loved. Whatever the underlying origin you need to deal with it once an for all.

This will be the first step towards making peace with yourself. If you can do this you will be one step closer towards real and everlasting weight loss success.
