Let’s take a moment from our discussion of the new paradigms from quantum physics which you need to finally lose your unwanted weight. Today let’s discuss a practical application of the new holism paradigm in weight loss.
What follows is a “street-level” way to engage the power of the holism paradigm with your weight loss.
I Don’t Care How Much You Weight; “You” Aren’t Fat!
So often, I hear people with unwanted weight say, “I am fat”. And I almost always cringe.
I have found, through researching quantum physics, that the words we use are very important. Why? Because they not only reveal but also reinforce our beliefs.
And here is the problem presented by saying, “I am fat” (which seems like a fairly “innocent” phrase and, certainly, is one everyone seems to use without discretion). Saying, “I am fat” defines me as a person. It defines my state of being.
And if you can tell me that the word “fat” doesn’t have negative, if not awful, connotations for you…well, I’m going to tell you that I don’t believe you.
So if I say, “I am fat”, I am defining who I am and my state of being using a very negative word with really bad associations. Yuck! How can I feel good about myself under that definition of “who I am”?!
Look How Important the Words We Use Are! They Make a World of Difference, Don’t They?
But what if, instead, I say, “I have unwanted weight”? That phrase does not define who I am or my state of being. That phrase merely describes a current physical condition – which then starts building and reinforcing a belief in the possibility that my unwanted weight is not permanent!
Try it right now. Say these two phrases aloud and really pay attention to your gut, noticing how each makes you feel
- First, say, “I am fat”.
- Let a little time lapse.
- Next, say, “I have unwanted weight”.
I dare you to tell me you didn’t notice a difference. And, in addition to the second phrase feeling better, were you lying to yourself or “sugar-coating” your present weight-loss challenges? Nope…not one iota!
My recommendation is to never refer to yourself as “fat” again! You’ll notice a big difference in your weight-loss efforts!
