The Fat me vs. The Thin me

Saturday, April 27, 2013

I decided to write up this blog because I am currently doing "Why weight" workbook by Geneen Roth. She's my favourite author for weightloss issues. So there's a page asking me to list out the fat me and the thin me qualities. Here's mine.

The Fat me:
always wears large clothes
is feeling huge all the time
feels like a set of boobs
is quiet
is sensitive
is angry
is quick tempered
is impulsive
is over protective.

The fat me wears clothes that are:
huge and baggy
long and loose
all covered up

When I am at a party, the Fat me:
is shy
is reserved and will never talk to someone
eats as much as possible and
eats more.

When I am alone, the Fat me:
worries about weight and health
wants to lose weight and feel thin
wants to become thin
wants to have smaller boobs, stomach, and butt

The Fat me likes:
Ice cream
deep fried oily food
anything fried
lots and lots of food and
comfort eating.

Many of the qualities I listed above surprised me when I penned them down. But to be really honest and admit it, they are the truth about the ugly side of me.

Now let's come to the Thin me.

The Thin me is:
looks at people in the eye
smiles more
is decisive
is strong
is able to lift my kids
is smart/ intelligent
loves to hug my kids when I'm sleeping without a pillow in between to protect my stomach
makes good decisions or choices about food and life

The Thin me wears clothes that are:
body hugging
long sleeved - especially cardigans and sweaters
loves jeans
loves high heels
trendy and fashionable

When I'm at a party, the Thin me:
is reserved
won't make the first move.
drinks and eats if I want to.

When I am alone, the Thin Me:
appreciates life
is thankful for my body and health
says "Thank you" more often
is always calm

The Thin me deserves:
nice clothes, shoes, bags & accessories
a good hair stylist
to have fun.

The Thin me is also true. So it feels like there are just days when there's a Fat me and a Thin me.

This was what I had to complete in the workbook. Just thought that theremight be someone out there who feels like the fat me or thin me.

    I read a book that talked about writing a letter to the "fat-me" and then having her respond to the "fit-me". it was kind of neat to realize both are the same person. it is just the personality traits that we assign each one.

    The 'fat' us also deserves respect, honour, dignity, wealth and all those other lovely things you listed. Thank you for this blog because I'm so guilty of forgetting that far too often. I think I might make a similar list of the 2 sides of myself. Really eye opening.

    Good luck with your goals. You can do it.

    I so understand how you feel about both the fat and thin! But, we can do this!
