Are You Becoming UN-Done by Doing It All?
The three fears mentioned in the article are the same ones that I struggle with on my journey to becoming the healthiest I can be.
- Fear of success in weight loss because the protective layer I had when I was heavier will not be there to insulate me.
- Fear of failure because I have lost the protective layer and everyone now sees the "me that was always there" and will be scrutinizing me to see if I fail.
- Fear of loss because it changes everything I have come to believe about myself and I have been forced to confront issues and behaviors that made me Emotionally Eat, and, other people's jealousy - because now that I have lost weight their perception of me is different and their self-comparisons, self-judgements, and self-issues can come to the surface and could make things unpleasant.
The 3H Club of Happiness
At least half my success so far is attributable to me working from the inside out, to address my Emotional Eating and working to align my head and my heart.
I'd like to know your thoughts if you feel something similar and would like to share with me.
