4. What are (or were) your fears about weight loss?

Very interesting thought - afraid to lose weight??? I don't know about being afraid to lose weight...... I don't think I am afraid of losing weight. I guess we often hear that weight is a "guard" against things.. people... etc.. If I were to think of losing weight in terms of losing my guard - well that's a different story. I've been "on guard" I think most of my life. I think that's how I was raised... I do know that I've been in "hiding" for quite a few years - that's associated with a fear - but that's a whole therapy session I guess. I will have to ponder this question some more.

    I think that there is a fear of change and not knowing what comes next. It is a fear we dont think about. Our weight has been a guard or wall as a protection, it was not real but we used it that way and thought it was. Losing weight and really making those changes in our lives takes courage to let your guard or wall down and deal with the challenges this brings.
    We can do it though, we are stronger than we know.
    I know you will think this all through and conquer any fear that appears. YOU are strong.
    SMiles and hugs

    I agree with you. I am not afraid of losing the weight so much as I am afraid of being able to keep it off. Just take each day as it comes and try your best. emoticon

    Don't be afraid and it is a new day. Remember a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. That keeps me going.
